Advice to business owners from business owners: Brent & Lyn Trail

From time to time we speak to our clients and glean some information that may be helpful to others. The business owners have good success and always provide some valuable tips based on our five questions we asked.

The latest session was with Brent & Lyn Trail, from Surveying Services in the Bay of Plenty, and we're sure you will agree there are some valuable messages to be heard.
