Just The Tip: How to Be the Most Confident Person At The Table

In: Just The Tip,

When somebody doesn’t buy from you, which are you thinking?

or

Man, they’re a loser.” 

Getting cocksure is the very first order of business.

And if you don’t feel sure of yourself, you know what you need? Not more clients.
