Review: Sales Dogs by Blair Singer and Robert T. Kiyosaki
Most sales books are about how to sell and how to act. Sales Dogs is different. Using a humorous comparison to different breeds of dogs, Sales Dogs gives a guide on how to understand your selling personality and adapt accordingly while avoiding frustration when tactics that others use fail for you Sales Dogs is directed toward newer sales professionals, with less than say, five, years experience and breaks the personalities into five: Pit Bull, Golden Retriever, Poodle, Chihuah, and Basset hound. The idea is to learn what personality you have and to know what traps you can fall into and ...
Review: The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss
This article summarizes the productivity and entrepreneurship bestseller by the well-known Tim Ferriss. "The Four-Hour Workweek" is his first book and, in my opinion, the most valuable. What is the Four Hour Work Week? Truth is, the title of the book is misleading. You have to understand the context to see it. Tim Ferriss doesn't mean to suggest that we should only work for four hours a week. You see, it's not about laziness. The Four Hour Work Week speaks of clarity and effectiveness, automation, freedom, and independence. It discusses setting goals and ensuring that all our actions are focused ...
Review: Outlier By Malcolm Gladwell
This book is a wonderful opener because of a number of reasons. But mainly, it examines common misconceptions about success and what makes someone successful. Before reading this book, I may have replied "talent, hardwork, and perseverance" to the question of what makes a person successful. These qualities are all important for success, but my theory overlooks one key characteristic: the environment. Time is a key factor in success. So are their cultural norms and geographic location. "Who we are and where we came from cannot be separated" Malcolm Gladwell Summary Notes You can master any subject if you work ...
Review: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
Stephen Covey's book "The 7 Habits for Highly Effective People" is about how to change your perception of the circumstances in which you find yourself and take responsibility for them. We can be more productive and achieve our goals by being accountable. You have probably noticed it. The same question is asked of all successful investors, entrepreneurs, and people in interviews: "What's the secret to your success?" Behind every question is a similar answer. This answer can be summarized into one word: Habits. Although it may seem a bit cliché, the truth is that habits make all the difference in ...
Review: You'll Get Through This | By Max Lucado
In the book you will find: - - It won't be easy. - It will take time. - This mess will be used by God for His glory. - Keep calm and don't be stupid. - Don't despair. - You can overcome this with God's help These words are used to describe a number of really bad situations, which Max Lucado describes at the beginning. We see situations such as the one where a woman abandons her three children to her husband. Another example is that of a man losing his job due to a nonsense. Other cases are also ...
Review: Hope When It Hurts by Kristen Wetherell & Sarah Walton
Today I am reviewing this book: Hope in midst of Pain by Kristen Wetherell & Sarah Walton. It is true that suffering is real. It doesn't matter if you're going through it yourself or if you know someone who is. There is good news. Hope is also real. For Christians, that hope is Jesus Christ. Hebrews has a verse that states, "Therefore those who have sought refuge from Him can feel secure in holding on to the hope that lies before them." 19: This hope is a solid and a reliable anchor for your soul" (Hebrews 6 : 18-19). NLT ...
