        Follow through and follow up (with customers) seems to be, to many people, a lost art. I used to think that lack of follow up, or a follow up “problem” was exclusive to salespeople, in the traditional sense.

          by Mike Phillips

                    Who was your most important connection today?

                    by Mike Phillips

                      Do you know the most important connection you made today? Odds are, with our highly digital and “connected” world, you don’t.
