  • Duke, as always you have come up with a great list!

  • Duke Marquiss

    With a name like Duke, how can you be wrong. I agree with all of Don’ts and Need’s. Great list. I have had to reinvent myself and go back to getting business the old fashioned way. Work for it – belly to belly and pick up the phone!!

  • Bob Canter

    I agree with most not all of the items on the list.
    You left off Integrity…that is paramount.

    Hello Duke – how refreshing to see what is old is new again! Thanks for all your positive contributions to our community! I would add Mentors to the list as Leaders always give back and groom the next generation.
