About Larry TreasMy name is Larry Treas and I am CEO and Head of New Thinking at Dagger. I have 35 years of witnessing the madness that blows through companies around the world, and it’s a foul breeze.

Through this process, I discovered some feature plans that were and were not getting discounts. As any of you would do, you go back to the carrier rep and let them know that these features should be getting discounts. [...]
