"Bryan Flanagan gets right into the heart of selling in So, You’re New to Sales. My favorite lesson in this book is about your first sale, which is to sell yourself on selling. This is a must read for anyone considering or new to selling." (Tom Hopkins, author of How to Master the Art of Selling and Closing Sales in Tough Times)
I drive a lot so might as well make good use of that time.
Yes I would listen again as there is much useful information in it that would continually need to be referenced to fully learn it.
I appreciated the personal examples the author uses to demonstrate his learning process for the important skills.
The intro is the only part narrated by Zig Ziglar the main book is narrated by Bryan Flanagan. I would listen to books by either of them because of their background.
I am currently studying the sales profession. I have have been listening and reading everything I can get. This is the best I have found in introduce someone to sales. The information in this book is simple to understand and put in to practice.
My biggest take-always were the following: I was reminded that anyone can sell, as long as you believe it for yourself, are being true to yourself, and can answer yes to these questions: Do you have integrity? Do you believe in your product? Do you respect your company? Do you like improving situations for people?
Beyond these thoughts, there is tons of practical advice. Be ready to take notes! I will listen to this again.
Mr. Flanagan is a dynamic speaker. I could tell he truly believed what he had written and was excited to share it.
I'm looking at entering the sales profession and this book provided a lot of perspective and some tips that I anticipate will prove helpful.
