The best advice I ever got on selling was this:
Have an awesome enough product that it will sell itself.
I read an article once that the least trusted person in America was the used car salesman. Its so easy to see why, you have an old product that you are selling for at a cheap price. Its age translates to unreliability while the cheap price equates to a low profit margin.
Having a hard time looking for a job? Try asking intercession to God from St. Cayetano (Cajetan) because he is known as the patron saint of job seekers and the unemployed.
St. Cayetano was of noble lineage and was born on October, 1480 at Vicenza. His parents were Gaspar, Count of Thiene, and Maria Porto.

But the purpose of this article will concentrate mainly on natural rubber production.
