Your Networking Tip

“To be successful, you have to be able to relate to people; they have to be satisfied with your personality to be able to do business with you and to build a relationship with mutual trust. “

– George Ross


Your Wellness Tip

Book ReviewSALES E.D.G.E by Gene McNaughton

“Don’t Wish it Were Easier.  Wish You Were Better.” Let’s face it. The selling landscape has changed
radically and it’s harder than ever before. It’s harder to stand out. It’s harder to get attention. The
internet has literally commoditized almost everything. Or so we think…

The truth is, there has never been a bigger opportunity to stand out. The bigger truth is that it
won’t happen because of your product or your service. Being good at what you do is not a benefit
today, it’s an expectation. The only way you will stand out is based on the level and quality of your
marketing and sales conversations. That is why The Sales EDGE selling system has been designed.
With one click of a button, you get instant access to a 21-Day trial of Gene’s training, available
in 3-5 minute videos on the Ultimate Sales Mastery System. In addition, you and a select few
others will be the first to preview chapters of The Sales EDGE  book coming in late 2016.

Gene McNaughton is one of the Nation’s most effective Business Growth Experts of his time.
As an accomplished public speaker and presenter, he is most recently known for his appearance
at the Napoleon Hill event, “Three Feet From Gold,” and Ultimate Business Mastery Summit in
Las Vegas, Fiji, and Australia (led by Tony Robbins).

Gene has a proven track record of breaking records using a consistent bullet proof process that
makes business growth fun, and sustainable for the long term. His 26-year experience includes
working with companies of all sizes as a consultant, speaker, sales trainer, and executive. Gene
and I have presented on the same stage several times and I can tell you he is really a fount of sales
knowledge. Read it soon.


Have a healthy, happy, prosperous networking week!
