STACEY SMITH'S TOP TEN INFLUENCER'S OF 2012
As you are already probably well aware Inman's list of the top 100 influential people of 2012 recently came out.

Your Fingers Will NOT Get Frost Bite From Doing Cold Calls!
Lately I have been working at getting in routine of making 50+ cold calls a day before noon.
