If you grew up in the early to mid 1970s and enjoyed the sounds of the Jersey Shore Bands - then this is a great story that is well told. a 180 from my normal audible content - and trilled I found it and listened. thanks for making it available. I don't think I would have gone to see it live, but it was a great alternative.

How do you break through to impossible-to-reach executive buyers who are intent on blocking out the noise that confronts them every day? Old-school prospecting tactics or new-school techniques alone won't provide the answers. But Combo Prospecting will...by showing how to combine time-tested sales processes with cutting-edge social media strategies and clever technology hacks.

Not sure where or how I learned about Tony Hughes. It seems he may have simply showed up in my LIn feed - for several weeks in a row. Nevertheless, I found his prospecting strategy to be compelling and probably challenging. And, certainly worth emulating.

The book incorporated the Tom Hopkins theory - "Repitition is the motherhood of learning." Mr. Hughes is consistent and repeats his mantras frequently. Not a negative - but it does become redundant after the third time.

What I would have liked more was depth around LIn Sales Navigator. One of his "must have tools". A "triple" (combo) in under 2 minutes is hard. I know because I tried and timed myself before listening to this book. Nevertheless, the next step for me is to buy the book (Kindle version) and see if I can get more from the written word on a second pass.

If you're in sales, sell complex solutions and are looking for another and probably a better way to achieve your goals, this book is absolutely worth reading.

With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files, and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One, and the White House residence.

Ray's self-discipline to note and record his "principles" is remarkable. I enjoyed listening to both narrators. It was difficult for me to grab transferable nuggets over a 16 hour listen period and as I do much of my BOT listening at the gym, taking notes was even more challenging. So I'm not sure how many of the Principles I will be able to leverage or incorporate, but I did enjoy learning about Ray, Bridgewater and the culture they've created there following this playbook. I'm sure some will stick. Perhaps I will buy the book in the future for faster reference. One red flag, Ray talks a bunch about the appendices and "samples" - but BOT listeners don't have access to this data, unfortunately. It didn't impact my ratings - just something that should be addressed.
