Keeping you in the loop on products and deals you may not have heard about.
June 1, 2011
Hi everybody; I hope you are all great and that you enjoyed your long weekend. Sincere thanks to all the veterans and military out there and their families for doing what you do for us! This past weekend I bought one of those goofy compilation CDs at Bed, Bath & Beyond (or as I call it, Bed, Bath & Beyonce). It's called "Summer Breeze" and it's full of fun summery songs. So, this issue, I am going to start each entry with a summer song. What do you think about that? But first, watch another "Sales Tip" from the San Diego show, where my colleague Nicole talks about selling apparel to the education market.
Then go ahead and enjoy this edition and don't' forget: Send your feedback directly to: email@example.com. It
may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.
