It carries most of the tools they will use during the day while building a structure. What you will find in the tool belt will be the tools that are most used and compact enough to be worn in the belt so they can be accessed quickly making the job go more efficiently. Each tool has its purpose and each one is vitally important in getting the job done right and on time. It is also the same for a network marketer, having the tools close by to get the job done professionally effectively. Frustrated Network Marketer–Where Is Your Tool Belt?
