OK…You started a business and now aren’t sure how to produce revenue beyond the friends and family networks.  Do you need to begin your company’s sales effort and don’t know where to start or what to do?  Simple questions yet no simple answers. Don’t be confused by all the jargon out there!  There are many different strategies and opinions but, every company is different therefore, your plan to roll out sales is going to be unique to your company.  Our panelists combine many years of sales successes and failures in many verticals and will be joining together to discuss how to begin and ultimately consistently grow your sales.
