If you had a crystal ball, so you could see which deals would successfully close, and which ones would end up as huge time wasters, would that be of value to you? Imagine the extra money you’d earn if you flushed out bad business as soon as possible! Not at the end; as soon as possible! We don’t have a crystal ball. But we do have the next best thing.
