    Communication is so important, Barrie. A lot of people have a hard time understanding the difference between listening and hearing. It doesn't look like you do.

      Thank you Tracey. I’ve been told I’m a good listener. It’s amazing how many skills we use to communicate and connect well.

    It’s one of the four things we do in our business,
    Barrie.

    Once we have connection with someone, it’s the
    communication that allows the relationship to
    develop.

    Yup…communication is critical!

    Great post!

    Hi Barrie

    I see what you mean, and the way I see it, some people talk AT people, while some talk WITH people.

    And as for the constant bombardment email techniques…. Are about the worst attempt at communication.

    Annoying ones are when you buy a product from someone…. And they then tell hou about everything other must have product until you cut the cord…. This is of course how they sell so much…. I bombard my mail list for you and your product launch, then you bombard yours for mine…..

    Worse is when the circle repeats and they promoters next best thing, that is a copy of the first!

    Of course, they are all different…… Really…..

    I hit the unsubscribe button a lot more now, and the buy button a lot less….
