20 years of professional experience, including 18 as a private entrepreneur shaped my business approach, based on the rule – First persuade, since in business you get only what you have negotiated. Business is subject to risks and uncertainties. When negotiating, buying or selling there is no room for mistakes since the outcome affects bank accounts. I share knowledge and experience with managers, salesmen and merchants who are open to self-development, pro-activity, and are strongly self-motivated to learn their areas of development.
