    PsychoTactics™ at is a thought system that is based on 5000+ years of tried and tested methods. Our brains are hardwired with information, that hasn't changed in all these centuries. Imagine being able to use that same psychology in business. It's so deceptively simple that you will wonder just how you did without this incredible understanding of the human psyche for so long.
    Sean runs It’s a site which explores why customers buy (and why they don’t). What causes them to hesitate at the last minute and back away? And how to overcome that hesitation factor. Sean D’Souza lives in New Zealand with his wife and approximately 64 million sheep.
