"In my early years, a customer came to me and asked if we offered a particular service. He had asked my employees earlier and they didn't know. At that moment, I realized that you are what your employees know! Because your employees represent your company, it's important that they are knowledgeable about your company and your company's offering."—Lakeshia Grant, CEO
