As stated in our book authored by Jim Stovall and myself entitled, “The Art of Communication—Your Competitive Edge” (2016), Sound Wisdom Publishers, our ability to impress our customers—our clients—makes or breaks our business or our practice whether it be a commercial enterprise, a medical practice, or a church where the minister is the center of focus.
