Career Talk, How to Become Persuasive in Sales?

One essential requirement to become successful in the field of sales is the ability to persuade people. While it may sound easy, not a lot of people can persuade other people to change their minds and believe them and do or buy the things that they recommend.

Difficult Clients: Here’s How To Deal With Them

My Divorce Story and How I Survived

People from all walks of life have that longing of being attached to someone and be valued for who they are as a person. Man and woman are wired differently yet the desire of being connected intimately are inherent in the deepest core of an individual.
