  • The Way We're Working Isn't Working: How Intense Focus and Frequent Renewal Fuel Great Performance

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Tony Schwartz, Jean Gomes
    • Narrated By Tony Schwartz

    Demand is exceeding our capacity. The ethic of "more, bigger, faster" exacts a series of silent but pernicious costs at work, undermining our energy, focus, creativity, and passion. Nearly 75 percent of employees around the world feel disengaged at work every day. The Way We're Working Isn't Working offers a groundbreaking approach to reenergizing our lives so were both more satisfied and more productive, on the job and off.

    "I'd give it a 10 but there are only 5 stars"
    Where does The Way We're Working Isn't Working rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This fresh perspective on efficiency and productivity is truly groundbreaking and is the culmination of a brilliant career writing about leaders and organizations to effect change and studying the science of high performance. He has co-authored books with the likes of Donald Trump and Michael Eisner and is currently the CEO of the Energy Project dedicated to energizing people by creating a framework within organizations that encourages employees to find meaning and purpose in their careers.

    The way we are working isn't working brings understanding of how to maximize our productivity and performance through a scientific look at our use of energy, motivation, and willpower. It has great practical action steps that anyone can implement effectively doubling or tripling their productivity. I'm a believer and I highly recommend this book.

  • Book Yourself Solid, 2nd Edition: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle Even if You Hate Marketing and Selling

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By Michael Port
    • Narrated By Michael Port
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    According to the Small Business Administration, 90% of service businesses will fail within the first five years. They fail not because they don't offer great services and products, but because the owners are extremely uncomfortable with traditional marketing and sales. The result is a frustrated, isolated, and overwhelmed business owner who does not know there is an entirely different, highly successful approach to marketing and sales available—and it's laid out in Book Yourself Solid.

    Bonnie says: "Excellent book overall"
    "Highly recommend"
    What did you love best about Book Yourself Solid, 2nd Edition?

    Michael Port is teaching from experience of someone who has actually booked himself solid. He gives real techniques and tools that work today for you to promote your business, brand, product, or service and get speaking engagements. He offers an excellent unique approach to find partners who can help promote your business.

    His authentic approach is very refreshing, appealing and entertaining and is worth many times the price. As an entrepreneur i highly recommend this book to other entrepreneurs, small business owners and sales and marketing professionals.

    What did you like best about this story?

    That he reads the book himself and didn't hire a book reader
