Making the Most of Customer Service

One of everyone’s most frustrating experiences is dealing with poorly trained, less-than-motivated, and often distant-sounding customer service representatives. Sometimes I hesitate to make a purchase at the thought that I might have to return the item and be forced to navigate the muddy waters of the customer-service return process. The following experience illustrates the benefit of taking a step back and looking at the situation from a mediator’s perspective. I had changed apartments and asked my local phone carrier to transfer the number. Soon after I moved I got an offer from a long-distance carrier to switch, and I accepted it.

Forex Tips for Beginners

After hours of practice and test runs, it’s time to start trading in the real forex market. Whether you’re a forex broker or individual investor, the best way to begin trading is to start small.
