How to Sell in Tough Times and Tough Markets
Presenter: Paul Reilly

Presented By: Steve Yastrow
Hosted Live 3/25/2020

How are you dealing with your business situation? Are you in the driver’s seat or the passenger seat? Sit in the driver’s seat, where you can navigate and steer, instead of in the passenger seat, where the route and destination are out of your hands.

The results you create over the coming months depend – largely – on how well you address the things you can control, and how well you lead in a time of crisis.
