i've heard a lot of good things about zig but in the end, it was just too much hype and not enough performance. the strategies are very easy to see through which would annoy the prospect (i've tried them)
The things I know for sure I am are: Christian, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Granddaughter, Sister, American, Patriot, Friend, Teacher, Student, Seeker, and Thinker. I am far from perfect but I do try to be kind, honest, honorable, trusting and trustworthy. Lover of sunshine, books, southern food, vacations in national parks, singing in my car, cookie dough and icing, and cucumber margaritas.
I really wanted to like Zig Zigler. I have heard so much praise about his tapes and seminars. I found his stories amusing but lacking in substance. His tactics are loud, obnoxious, and overbearing. If someone tried to sell to me with these tactics I would take my money and run the other way.
This book may apply more for someone in a direct sales environment, car sales, vacume cleaner sales, timeshares. But I sell embroidery, this won't work for me at all.
This is a classic Zig: the Texas "twang"; the wealth of stories; the glib cleches. Outstanding motivational content; very positive and inspirational. If you like self-dev and inspirational books, you'll love this one.
Every aspect of this audiobook is relevant and impactful if you are in professional selling. Ziglar uses real life scenarios with each closing technique and I could identify with each example. Outstanding!
There was never a dull moment while listening to Ziglar. He delivers the entire book with enthusiasm!
This is a book you listen to many times.
I listened to this on my commute to and from work. Found it a very enjoyable listen and full of helpful advice. I plan to listen to it several more times and am also reading the book on my Kindle!!
