    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than 15 million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase. But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges: Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight. Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others.

    Would you listen to Sifted again? Why?

    Yes, I find Francis Chan to be the greatest pastor that I have ever met. I have met some of the greatest men of our time but none have walked the talk as Francis has. Who do you know will tithe 50%?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Francis Chan, he has the ability to tell you and say things in such a manner that you would not allow any one to tell you. Francis loves those he preaches to so much that he will say it and yes it might sting for a second but it is spiritual medicine.


    Any additional comments?

    If you ever have the opportunity to see Francis preach, go! He is amazing. Please remember that he I human and is not God but the Spirit does flow from his words.

    It seems that some people are born to achieve anything they want. Some would say they are lucky, are blessed, or have the Midas touch. But what truly is the reason for their success? New York Times best selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Failing Forward to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the printed version. The way that Mr. Maxwell tells a story it would definitely be better to have the audio version. His voice and his ability to make you feel as part of his private group is great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Failing Forward?

    The story of Dave was one of the most memorable parts. This gentleman started a couple places to eat and enjoy the atmospheres that you would be more than happy to take pictures of the place and proud to be in his creations.


    What does John C. Maxwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His love for helping people. You can hear it in his voice. He is full of energy, yet he knows how to release it at the right times in the right amount.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Yes You CAN!


    Any additional comments?

    Have a few pieces of paper and a pen or pencil with you as you read this great book. Also share what you learn with your loved ones. It is not worth learning something if you don't apply it.

    After Dr. Covey passed away on July 16, 2012, there was an outpouring of emotion for the loss of one of the world's great thinkers on success and leadership. His insightful, straightforward advice has given guidance to millions of people from all walks of life, demonstrating how each of us can control our own destiny. Among his many best-selling books are The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The 8th Habit, Principle-Centered Leadership, and First Things First, all of which left a legacy unmatched in its motivational thrust.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wisdom and Teachings of Stephen R. Covey to be better than the print version?

    I bet the written version in great but nothing is better then hearing the voice of the master himself. Stephen Covey is a man with such a voice that shows his loving spirit. He can get from point a to point b and yet make you feel like you are appreciated and part of his inner circle.

    Listen to this great book, then listen to it again with a pen and paper. Daily look at these stories and phrases of wisdom.
