Do you enjoy the thrill of online auctions? Now you can turn it into an exciting and lucrative business. All you need is a computer and a product (or service) people want, and you're well on your way to being a player in this $2 billion global retail phenomenon. You can sell almost anything on eBay, from the familiar to the exotic. And you can do it any time of the day or night, which makes this a great business to start part time.

Painfully simple

This audio recording is for the eBay novice, not for intermediate or advanced sellers. The WARNING comments are good to hear, albeit a little cheesy in their voiceover delivery.

A Wall Street Journal best seller! There is a major difference between being a salesperson in business and being in business as a salesperson. Being successful in sales has a lot to do with what's on the inside of a person, and the person's ability to establish and foster loyal relationships.

Get past the analogies...

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-28-07

Once you get past the author's over use and improper mixing of analogies, and referring to principles as "laws", you'll find several gems of information that may be new or may be a reminder of a technique or approach you've neglected for awhile.
I recommend listening to "How to Become a Rainmaker" by Jeffrey J. Fox.

Getting a new job or a big promotion is like building a house: You need to get the foundation right for both. With a job, the quick-drying cement is how well you do in your first hundred days, since they establish the foundation for long-term momentum and great performance.

CEO focused

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-24-07

There are a few good guidelines that are of value for not making gross mistakes (such as overestimating your own abilities, or assuming you have the perfect plan from day one), but although the book claims to be applicable to all management (from middle managers to CEOs), 95% of the book is focused on the CEO level. I would recommend this for VP-level and above, or those that deal with boards on a regular basis.
