  • What People Are Saying

    “Jim Charette’s advice to “ask more questions” has helped me greatly to better understand a client’s needs before I try to address them. This is one of those things that we all know is the right thing to do, and we still don’t do it. It takes a conscious effort to find out more about what a customer wants, in order to provide the best possible reply. I am so much more satisfied with my effectiveness with clients, now that I ask more questions.”
