Publisher's Summary

There are countless books, seminars, and consultants that offer the secrets to everlasting business success. After heeding their advice, perhaps you manage your time more efficiently, write a compelling pitch letter, or close a few more deals. But after a week or a month, you revert to your old bad habits and mediocre performance, until the next hot new program comes along. The only lasting way to enhance your productivity and growth is to focus on a handful of basic concepts and repeat them week after week - and teach your staff to do the same.

This audiobook explains how to tune up virtually every area of your business systematically, with just a little disciplined focus. Spend an hour per week on each "impact area" of your business, and you will be astonished at how much you can accomplish.

    "I want to kill the narrator"

    The material is very good but Anthony Heald's voice is REALLY annoying. I wish I could return the selection I hate his voice that much. He sounds like a winney, gay, John Lithegow. Nothing against Mr Lithegow, who is a fine actor and played a gay person once and didn't sound this bad. I can't listen to the material anymore because of this jerk.

    "Valuable advise from the trenches"

    There is a lot of practical, applicable advise in this book. Thanks to the engaging reading of Anthony Heald I enjoyed listening to the complete 9 hours of insight.

    "Excellent"

    I have been the owner of a company since 1975. I have had as many as 12 salesmen at a time. I wish I would have had this book then. It is filled with so much advice and good sense.

    "best sales book ever written in my opinion."

    this is the best sales book I have ever read! it is an outline as well as an in-depth blueprint for generating lots of sales. Far more than one sales person could ever handle on his own. I will follow Chet Holmes's advice to the T and take my company to the Stars

    "Dated"

    Lots of good stuff, but lots of stuff that has aged horribly. He puts a big emphasis on sending faxes. Nobody even has a fax line anymore.
