At some point, someone was three feet from gold and had no idea. Being a contractor for over 40 years, the gold laden service calls have always been there, but it took me knowing what to look for and the process it takes to retrieve the gold. After decades of struggle and doing calls for less than what I was worth, I learned to maximize each call that rang through my business line, working smarter, not harder. I found the glimmer that pays big bucks.

In a perfect world, your trained and experienced office employees would never quit. When they go on vacation, someone else would seamlessly step into their job and handle it effectively and efficiently.
