One of five children, Pat watched as her alcoholic mother struggled to get by on charity, cons, and petty crimes. At age seven, Pat was taught to roll drunks for money. At 12, she was targeted for sex by a man eight years her senior; by 13, she was pregnant. By 15, Pat was a mother of two. Alone at 16, Pat was determined to make a better life for her children. But with no job skills and an eighth-grade education, her options were limited. She learned quickly that hustling and humor were the only tools she had to survive.

This (audio)book/autobiography right here is absolute GOLD. I have laughed out loud so many times in public people must think I have turrets. Incredible and insane true story about comedienne Patricia Williams (no clue who she was before this), hysterically funny and perfectly narrated in the native Atlanta accent and vocabulary by the fearless black female lead herself.

A hit future biopic film in the making, I’m putting it out there! #blackgirlmagic

Selling value to B2B buyers today can feel like trying to stop a freight train that's hurtling towards the sales graveyard of commoditization and discounting. Today's empowered buyer has done research, has a clear idea of his or her firm's needs, and knows how much the firm is willing to pay.

Even if you havent read the great sales book that is The Challenger Sale, this is a top notch book that puts the rubber to the road on how the modern customer has changed into an informed buyer and the need for sales people to leverage insight and insight scenarios to enrol the prospective customer into situations that highlight your unique value that can help advance and close sales.

The author started out with a nice calm and warm voice with a good pace and then it just felt mechanical to listen to. As stated by previous reviewer's this author is clueless in the sense that he verbalizes all of the punctuation and it becomes just excruciating to listen to in combination with his robotic cadence. Great topic, just poor delivery, yet again.
