In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.

Centralizing SMS operations and why you should consider it

07 Jun 2017

Centralization /(sɛntrəlʌɪˈzeɪʃ(ə)n/ noun - the action or process of bringing activities together in one place.

In the era of globalization and communication through technology, businesses no longer have borders and it's very common for companies to offer services from Germany to Zimbabwe, in multiple markets, and different continents. However, offering services in multiple countries leads to cooperating with a longer, more complicated list of partners.
