Cable television, blogs, podcasts, vendor sales calls and the like are constantly at our doorstep giving up "feeds and updates" on the economy and it's rise and demise.

Listen in on what Coach Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots has to say about the noise to his players. This is the mastermind (2 comments)

Listen to my sample scripts. You can (1 comments)
