can you give me three good reasons to do business with you?

             This question caught our attention!  And then we sat down and tried to answer it.  Turns out, it can be a tough but absolutely essential.        

             That’s according to Barrry Farber, author of a monthly column for entrepreneur.com and rated as the "hottest speaker of the year" by Successful Meetings Magazine.  His article ‘Are you losing your edge?’ discusses the importance of making new sales calls and the fear that often comes along with it (you mean, I have to put myself out there?!). While this task can be daunting, and honestly sometimes discouraging, it is essential in this kind of economy.

             Barry goes on to explain five simple steps to help you overcome the fear/reluctance hurdle that might be blocking you from making new sales calls. One of these steps is preparing your pitch and benefits statement by answering that tough question. So we invite you to read the article and give this question some serious thought. As Barry states, “it is in doing what we fear most that we grow.”
