  • Let's Get Real or Let's Not Play: Transforming the Buyer/Seller Relationship

    Mahan Khalsa and Randy Illig offer a better way. Salespeople, they argue, do best when they focus 100 percent on helping clients succeed. When customers are successful, both buyer and seller win. When they aren't, both lose. It's no longer sufficient to get clients to buy - a salesperson must also help the client reduce costs, increase revenues, and improve productivity, quality, and customer satisfaction.

    Daniel Y L says: "Boring, Theoretical--Making Selling Complicated"
    "Great approach to selling."

    What other book might you compare Let's Get Real or Let's Not Play to and why?

    Similar to the 7 habits of highly effective people - Win Win or no deal.


    What about Randy Illig’s performance did you like?

    Sounds like someone I would hang with.


    Any additional comments?

    While many points are usable in most sales situations, this seems to be focused more on B to B selling.

    You’ve got a business colleague who’s hostile...a client who’s furious...a staffer who’s deeply cynical—how do you get people to do what you want in tough situations like these? In Just Listen, veteran psychiatrist and business coach Mark Goulston reveals the secret to how to get through to anyone, even when productive communication seems impossible.“Here's the challenge,” Mark says.

    Joseph says: "Not for everyone"
    "Interesting topic and experiences."

    Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

    Grant!


    What did you learn from The TenX Rule that you would use in your daily life?

    Stop thinking about it and do it!!!

  • Think and Grow Rich

    Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

    Dave says: "It's a must."
    "I was expecting more"

    Story
    What would have made Think and Grow Rich better?

    the time period of it being written makes some of it irrelevant.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Napoleon Hill again?

    probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    there are better more recent books to deliver this message - 7 habits etc.
