... one day, I'll leave the ISM. But like those before me, and those that will surely come after, I am just a comma in a very long sentence that is the ISM Story.

All our members care about is leads. All I care about is leads. With everyone I meet, I have always asked myself why has this person approached me and: how can [...]

Let's face it - we've all heard someone say this but here are some words drilled into me by my mentor Philip Allen, FLPI. 'It doesn't matter what time you rock up to work or what time you leave, but what you achieve in the time given. Results don't lie.' I agree. If you disagree, take it up with him. He's ex-army. So good luck.
