Experience and savvy marketers know that it is significantly easier and takes less resources to sell additional
services to your current clients then to new ones.

As many of you know, our primary business is workplace violence prevention consulting and training and we are noticing that more employers are asking us about the availability of online courses on workplace violence prevention. Accordingly, we are creating a series of modules
that will satisfy this need. We would like to offer you a ground floor opportunity to resell the series to your clients
at a hefty margin. We will provide you with marketing, and collateral materials.
