Marvin Carolina Jr.: Feedback—it’s good for business

Before I begin I want to congratulate you. For what? For having the courage to launch your business and the stamina to stay in business.

Not only is it difficult competing in an ultra-competitive global market, it’s sometimes difficult hearing criticism about how you run your business.
