Best Advice

“This is true for all businesses but especially true in a service industry. Good service is not enough, you have to have a relationship with your customers, take the time to understand their needs, desires and problems and help them reach their goals. You have to be a resource, not a salesman and to do that you have to have the highest level of integrity there is.” Stuart Axelrod, Pine Tree Waste
