  1. Thanks for sharing. This list is very helpful, especially for those who have small businesses. It’s very hard to keep track of these things.

  2. I am particularly interested in the Customer Feedback online discussion. I think that you can really learn a lot from it. After all, you can really never get enough of knowledge when it comes to customers. Your customers are the life of your business. This is why you should strive to continuously provide their needs.
