Weekly Book Summaries — August 9–August 15

Hello Everyone!

This week we’ve got 3 new book summaries for you that you can watch or listen to.

Focus by Daniel Goleman (watch on Monday-Tuesday)

Emotional intelligence pioneer Daniel Goleman tells us that there are three different types of focus: inner, other, and outer. Goleman tells us that a well lived life demands that we be nimble in each.

By understanding and developing our skills in those three areas, we can improve our results in any area of our lives.

Start Thinking Like a Buyer by Jerry Acuff (watch on Wednesday-Thursday)

The essence of Stop Acting Like A Seller and Start Thinking Like A Buyer is that to succeed in sales, you need to transform a selling experience into a buying experience.

You do this by asking great questions that uncover whether a fit exists between what your customer needs and what you have to offer.

​I’m going to go out on a limb and say that there are some things in your business and life that you’d like to change. Maybe you want to start eating healthier, exercising, or figure out a way to manage your inbox.
