“A lot of folks want to build this great product and then think if I build this great product [customers] will come…it just doesn’t happen. You have to go to customers and see if they’ll actually buy something…I try to convince a customer to buy something first and then I’ll build it.”

The ABC Strategy from Barry’s new book Small Business Hacks: 100 Shortcuts To Success – How to get a potential client to respond to your emails:
