Remove the Wallpaper

By John Jantsch

Fix your product, fix your delivery, fix your customer service, over-deliver on the first order, on every order, document your successful systems and teach everyone in your organization how to use them, make every client so happy that they beg you to do business with their friends and associates.

Strip away the layers of marketing wallpaper, the next new great thing, the idea of the week and focus on building a better widget–especially if that widget is you!
