Why Justin Finkelman Believes the Customer IS Always Right – Really!
Entrepreneur Justin Finkelman lives by the maxim that, when it comes to business, the customer is right one hundred percent of the time. Finkelman, who founded a fitness apparel company that specializes in customized products, understands that many situations are subjective, but in the long run it is in the business’ best interest to try and see situations from the customer’s perspective and work to alleviate any grievances. Customer service is a vitally important part of business success, and this belief plays right into that.
