Probably the most critical thing you can do to build your marketing confidence is DO things. So many service professionals get into paralysis by what they consider the overwhelming job of marketing. That's when the marketing research overdrive response kicks in. You figure if you just gather enough information, you'll feel they have a grasp on marketing. Actually, the opposite is true.

"Now what?" I thought. I had never gone a full afternoon without a latte.
