In my new 196 page book, “Turbocharge Your retail Business”, you get a collection of common sense strategies that have helped independent retailers thrive and prosper in today’s hyper competitive, fast paced world.

As a marketing consultant and customer service activist, I recount in vivid detail the good, the bad, and the ugly of customer service in both retail and other businesses. While often amusing, these stories demonstrate how easy it is to make customers feel great simply by using common sense.

The book consists of four different sections

  • 1. Turbocharge your attitude
