During my immigration process I remember my wife calling a lawyer that freely gave away advice on the exact process we needed to follow.

Luckily I have a good grasps of legal documents and legislation with my CPA background and was able to complete the paperwork myself but for most people this offer makes total sense.

If you have a productized program that is priced under $200 then you can sell people into this program fairly easily. If your program is priced at $2,000 or more you should consider splintering your offer so it may fall into the easily affordable price and under that $200, threshold for your sales to be optimal. Remember that the exact price points vary by industry.


Unfortunately, USA Swimming cannot accept your background check for another organization. Currently, there is significant duplication of efforts with regard to background checks required by schools, churches, youth sports and employers in part because organizations are not permitted to share applicant’s background check reports with each other. In addition, different entities use different criteria to judge someone’s suitability for employment, membership or service. There are no standard criteria by which search reports are evaluated.

It works on me as well. I've been a salesperson my whole life...and I continue to learn...Miles=good teacher. Still don't understand the hashtag thing...

When passersby walked down the sidewalk and smell the irresistible draw of meat smoking on the pit, when those cute outfits grabbed your eye and you walked in to browse the racks for the perfect summer dress, and when prospects could look the shopkeeper in the eyes and get answers to all their questions, it’s easy to see how those businesses earned the trust of the market and grew.
Lead Capture Tool – Many email autoresponders are limited in the opt in form options for you to collect information on your leads. Tools like Thrive Leads and OptinMonster enables you to create unique opt in forms. They also give you additional functions to capture more leads, such as a pop up that appears when a person leaves, mobile specific forms, forms with a yes/no option and evolving offers to returning visitors. I’m a huge fan of OptinMonster as it has all the cutting edge features.
