Decent Exposure, Episode 10: What We've Got Here Is...Ways to Avoid Failure in Communication

So, here’s the thing. As communication professionals, we’ve been noticing that people don’t know how to communicate. People are being vague, not returning emails, or both (along with myriad other transgressions) and it has to stop. So this is our PSA on how not to talk to people when you’re running a business.

In this episode, we discuss how a multi-level marketing opportunity taught us about  When you’re communicating with people, especially people you want to work with, you have to be direct and treat everyone with respect. You never know if your lack of response (be it a lack of a timely response or a lack of a direct response) will cause a missed opportunity for either yourself or someone else.
