The initial responses have been very informative, and your feedback will help us improve what we are doing, and create better products and services for you.

Special-Sales Tip of the Day, November 24, 2014

As you begin planning for 2015, remember that the usefulness of a business plan is not measured in pounds. It should be measured in results. Did your actions reach your goals this year? If not, what do you need to change next year?

You Said It

‘(The APSS) webinar was the best I've ever listened to. Very prepared, informative and lively! Plus, you did not try to sell yourself every second like most people tend to do during webinars.’ 

      Jonathan Fleming

They Said It

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.”
