    Do You Have Performance Goals for Your Home Business?

    It would be a real good idea to conduct a self-audit to see how you stack up in providing customer service for your members and prospects. You can actually keep a running total if you will remember to keep it up. Then your audit would only consist of calculating your results.


    Watch It!

    You could list every time a customer has to remind you that you haven’t done something you promised; when you are late with fulfilling an obligation; when you don’t show up for a conference and any other time you have told the customer you would.
