Tips From The Top for October 2018 Don’t Be a Slave to Your Numbers!
Don’t be a slave to your numbers, use them to see where opportunities lie.
If customers insist on speaking with you (the owner) all the time, you should consider hiring an assistant who can be helpful with the customers but also act as the gatekeeper.

How to Talk with Clients
A big recent take away from my board is how to talk to my clients. They said “don’t talk technical with clients” – this was VERY eye opening. Now, instead of explaining everything to them I simply tell them what we’re going to do andthe price. In the background, I use my technical expertise to determine the best solution for them. My clients like it and I’m getting lots of acceptance on my proposals!
