Horsesmouth-What I Am Trying to Do- But Better



I first became aquainted with HORSESMOUTH when I worked for a financial services marketing company. Recently, a friend of mine got a free trial and sent me some excellent articles. I went to the site myself and discovered a wealth of useful information, such as I have tried to provide on the blog. My goal, as always is to negotiate special pricing for FAN readers. Stay tuned and in the meantime enjoy some of the articles HR sent me. Find a topic you like- copy and paste the link or use the hyperlink. Articles are printable, so if you don't have time to read them all today-save them or print them. GOOD STUFF!

James,

I haven't used them, but I may give them a shot with 5 or 10 appts just to see if they are real... I wonder, do you know if they will schedule appts to the office instead of doing them in the prospect's home??
