The Owl sat down with his favorite client, Little Bessie. She was the best business owner in the county and she was a true rags to riches story. Like most greats she would continue to meet weekly with the Owl since she began her business and go over a different business lesson. “Today” said the Owl “it’s about listening. To be successful in sales, the lifeblood of and arguably the most important part of business you have to listen to your clients.”
