Every business needs is a website but only 4% of a website visitors contact the business. This means 96% of the people that are interested in a business and the business never knows they are interested.  How would you like a website that attracts more visitors and converts them to customers?

Book Review: Who’s in Your Room by Dr. Ivan Misner, Stewart Emery & Rick Sapio

Are you living your best life? Do you ever feel overwhelmed or inefficient? Are you happy with the people you surround yourself with? Are you having trouble achieving some of your life goals? If you said yes to any of these questions, don’t worry–there’s hope. You see, the quality of your life depends on the people in your life.

The simple and powerful ideas in this book can change your life forever.

Who’s in Your Room? introduces you to the concept of your life being like a room–a room where anyone who enters affects your life . . . forever. Although this concept may sound frightening, this  book gives you the tools and exercises you need to take control of your room and live the life you desire.

This book brings in experts to describe how people leave you with memories that cannot be erased  but can be managed. You manage them by determining what’s really important to you, and then  you can determine how to spend your time and whom you should be spending it with. Stop living according to everyone else’s rules. Shape your life by taking control of your room. Live your life by your design!

Dr. Misner is the founder of BNI, recipient of the John C. Maxwell Leadership Award, and known as the Father of Modern Networking.


Have a healthy, happy, prosperous networking week!
