Fortunately, business development and sales is a learnable skill. Focus on the challenges that your products and services solve. Then explore how to find people who need what you have. Take actionable steps to reach them, and commit to making a difference in your revenues in just 5 weeks in April! More info at: officexpats.com/biz-dev-
