5 For me, attitude can be defined as one word…LIFE. It makes an incredible difference in your LIFE. It can be a powerful tool for positive action. It can be a poison that cripples you.

12 Make them Positive... They will buy if I give them what they want. They can afford it, if they want it. They have high standards. They want the best value for their money.
