Three cheers for Tim! One for each paragraph above!
To those of you so busy selling other companies' products/brands, I ask you; what are you being paid to do so? Why not take all of that focus, energy and money and use it to sell yourselves instead? Finally, to the loyal Brand A fixture schleppers out there: what brand of fillings do you have in your teeth? What brand of file folders and boxes does your accountant use? How about they company that built your home... What brand of lumber, nails, etc did they use?
