Pitching Products to Professionals


Carpenters buy nails, office managers buy toner and hairdressers buy shampoo. But in many professions the shopping list includes toys. Ann Marie Keyes, a first grade teacher, and Layne Munson, a speech language pathologist, both estimate that they personally spend at least $100 on toys each year.
