Key Takeaways and Actionable Success Principles:

  • Providing value to others is the most financially profitable course of action for sales
  • Selling by definition is finding out what someone does need and helping them get it
  • The essence of influence is about attracting, not pushing others to your idea/business
  • Create relationships on an ongoing everyday basis until they feel so good about you that they want to provide value to you
  • When you sell on price, you’re a commodity. When you sell on value, you’re a resource.
