I'm feeling guilty that I have not posted a blog for nearly 2 months. Particularly as I made a promise to myself to blog an article at least twice per month.
Hopefully my excuse is acceptable. I've been working hard in my spare time (the time when I would normally find time to blog) on my book. It's now out on Kindle!! Romancing the Sale, as the title suggests is about winning sales by making your customers love you. It takes a fun look at sales by comparing the sales process with the world of dating.

My job is selling technology. Actually I'm more of a translator. I sell technology to other businesses and that's where things get weird.
