What does "The Client Mind" mean?

The Client Mind actually came from a long brainstorming session many years ago, (Probably over a nice glass of wine in the backyard!)  Valerie and her husband Co-Founder and Director of Training Tim Church came up with the idea because they both believed that people get too close to their own businesses to market it effectively to their target audience.  The key to marketing effectively is to know the mind of your client and be able to communicate your value proposition in the most clear and convincing manner possible.
