    This sounds like a valuable resource. Phone scripts can be so helpful! Most people will gradually adapt them as they become comfortable with the process, but having a prewritten script makes it so much easier to get started.

      It has everything in it from organizing skills. to pricing to marketing. It would be a great book to read to help someone decide if it is a business that suits their skill set. I do wonder if the other books in the series are just as good.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as
    yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
