Great video. I have definitely made my share of “rookie mistakes” in my first few years in business. Nice to give others the opportunity to learn from those mistakes.
Great resource, thank you. Andy Park (UPS Customer Technology Marketing) is a terrific resource by himself. UPS is a cornerstone of much of what I do. There is a lot of information in just one of these Google+ Hangouts!
