(Find out how to generate new leads in business in Julia Smiths previous article "Where do your prospects hang out?") We do this for ourselves and our clients. Recently we had an interview to attend a growth accelerator programme, and were asked about our own growth to date – as a sales company, why haven’t you got more sales?  We had to have a good look at ourselves, yes, we can always do better.
