    difficult expression

    Here is a dialogue from VOA ( in part): "A. So local companies come to you. B. They come to us and ask what I do now. A. In what areas? B. You mean it, accounting, computers, all areas. A. So you consult in all areas." In this dialogue, there is the expression YOU MEAN IT. What does YOU MEAN IT mean? Please help.

    I think it is 'you name it', not "you mean it".

    Re: difficult expression

    Hi there
    B isn't sure whether A is refering to "subject areas" or "geographical areas"

    That's why asked that question and it is OK.
