Not Everyone
Shops the Same Way

Presented by
Georganne Bender and Rick Kizer

"We’ve been business partners for over 30 years and we’ve noticed that we do quite a few things very, very differently."

Rich’s brain never turns off; Georganne flips hers off like a light switch the second she leaves the office.

Rich prefers to focus on one thing at a time; George is a multi-tasker.

This Zoominar will share what it takes to keep all types of people happily shopping your sales floor!
