Without a telescope, the world looks flat

For decades, folks who discovered Buying Facilitation™ were delighted. Finally, these visionaries said, a way to help those behind-the-scenes decisions get made in our favor instead of just sitting and waiting for buyers to come back and buy! One man, a VP of Sales at Merrill Lynch, shouted, “I KNEW IT I KNEW IT! I KNEW SOMETHING […]

Malaise and the Single Woman

Austin is a busy, fun town. It’s made up of many smaller towns – each filled with its own unique group of passionistas: film town, music town, technology town, hippy town, liberal-political town, foodie/wine town, writer’s town, gay town, innovator’s town.

Why Won’t Every Sales Person in the World Use Buying Facilitation® Now??

I’ve been writing, teaching and speaking about Buying Facilitation™ for at least 22 years professionally, although I developed the Model and taught clients and staff in the mid 80s while running my tech company in London. I’ve been writing books […]

I’m not a guy

I am a woman. Not a girl. Not a lady. Not a gal. And certainly not a guy. A woman.
It’s possible that it’s a generational thing, although by this point in my life, it’s an identity thing.
In the 60s, with the advent of feminism, America made the transition from thinking of women as children – for centuries calling them […]
