Talk Ain't Cheap... It's Priceless!
“There is an ancient and immutable truth: The ability to sell, explain, persuade, motivate, and lead others is our most important skill. Making things happen still requires the ability to make people like you, respect you, listen to you, and want to connect to you. And by connect, I mean connect personally, not digitally.
