I sold a premium behave chart this week, (from my toddler ideas range – for big kids too) and as usual, as well as the chart you order you get a freebie.

But I in the course of my online shopping this week, I have also read some “not so good ” testimonials.
and in the course of my life this week, I have encountered some “not so good” service, that has had a detrimental effect on the businesses concerned.
Food for thought when providing your own customer service . . . . . .
