When it comes to marketing your business in a rapidly changing work environment, conventional marketing wisdom often doesn't work. In fact, if I had a dollar for every time that I said "But it was supposed to work". I would be a VERY rich woman.

One of the realities of promoting your business in a turbulent marketplace is CHANGE. There are no guarantees and no foolproof strategies. In fact, to be successful, it is essential to spot trends and re-chart your course quickly.

In this E-BOOK, an updated compilation of our aritlces from our Spice of the Month ezine, I share some of the lessons that I have learned in the school of hard knocks after running The Training Oasis, Inc. and its sister company, Executive Oasis International, for over 20 years. I hope that this will save you some false starts and prevent you from going down some of the blind alleys that I did.

Check back regularly as this is a work in progress and continually evolving in view of a dynamic market and business environment.
