    There are an endless number of sales books that purport to let the reader in on the secrets of great selling. And many of them even have useful ideas and tips. But it doesn't matter how many tricks a salesperson has at hand if he or she doesn't have the one most important weapon in any salesperson's arsenal: the motivation to get out there and sell!Rhetorical tricks and clever devices, even if they're occasionally effective, don't make great salespeople; hard-working, self-motivated, optimistic people do.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, it was free. If I had purchased it, I would have been okay, but not overwhelmed with my purchase. Warren is a likeable guy, and made some good points, but I have heard better.


    If you’ve listened to books by Warren Greshes before, how does this one compare?

    Warren is a speaker by trade. I think if I saw him in person, I would probably enjoy hearing him speak, but this was an average book on sales.


    Did The Best Damn Sales Book Ever inspire you to do anything?

    It brought to my attention some things that I could refine, but it wasn't overwhelmingly "life changing".

    Instructive as it is innovative, Unlabel will empower you to channel your creativity, find the courage to defy convention, and summon the confidence to act and compete in any environment. This blueprint will teach you how to grow both creatively and commercially by testing your personal brand against the principles of the Authenticity Formula. Marc Eckō shares the bruising mistakes and remarkable triumphs that reveal the truth behind his success, growing from a misfit kid airbrushing T-shirts in his parents' garage to the bold creator of two hugely successful branded platforms.

    What made the experience of listening to Unlabel the most enjoyable?

    The content, the authenticity as I mentioned above. In my twitter post I said that after finishing the audiobook, my take away was that this was authentic, gritty, thought provoking, reality based, no fluff read/listen that I could listen to again easily. The narration was very good. Easy to listen to and very believable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That while Marc, like all of us have had our challenges in our respective businesses, that we do not comprimise ourselves, that we remain authentic to who we are. That we be "unlabeled".


    Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn and Marc Ecko – was your favorite?

    Marc of course, though Seth seemed quite a character in and of himself. I think he would be an interesting individual to meet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    That when the "great recession hit" Marc's company was hit, like everyone else, but, they pushed through and made it and learned a lot of valuable lessons both personally and professionally.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe if you are contemplating running your own business, or even in a business, like myself for some time, it is a valuable read/listen!

  • If You're Not First, You're Last: Sales Strategies to Dominate Your Market and Beat Your Competition

    During economic contractions, it becomes much more difficult to sell your products, maintain your customer base, and gain market share. Mistakes become more costly, and failure becomes a real possibility for all those who are not able to make the transition. But imagine being able to sell your products when others cannot, being able to take market share from your competitors, and knowing the precise formulas that would allow you to expand your sales while others make excuses.

    Would you consider the audio edition of If You're Not First, You're Last to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because you can hear the emotion and belief behind his words. He also adds his own comments in addition to what the book says.


    What other book might you compare If You're Not First, You're Last to and why?

    First audiobook I heard, and have nothing to compare to it, as it is one of the best out there on sales improvement/enhancement.


    What about Grant Cardone’s performance did you like?

    I felt like he spoke from the heart, could relate to the challenges those individuals in sales face, because he has been in sales all his life. I like his no excuses attitude.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it just reaffirmed and solidified what I needed to do to enhance my practice.
