It would be so much easier if they'd just pick up the phone and call you, wouldn't it? That's what Alan Berg hears from wedding and event pros around the world. How can you create a rapport, continue the conversation they've already started, and in many cases even get the sale, without speaking with them on the phone, or in person? That's what Alan will answer for you in this book. He'll show you how to get them to reply quicker, and how you can convert those inquiries to appointments - whether live or virtual - and even make sales, all using the same method they used to reach out.

This book contains so much gold and wisdom that it's truly a must buy for anyone in sales, but especially if you're in the wedding industry. Some of the suggestions may differ from what you currently do but Alan provides sound rationale for why you should give these suggestions a try.

Eighty percent of all businesses fail in their first five years! When you are facing down those kind of odds, you'd better know exactly what you are doing before you take the plunge. Success lies in the system! Gerber knows that for a business to be prosperous it must function like a powerful machine. The type of business is irrelevant - a precise system of dynamic interplay between the connected parts should be in place.

A slow start and was very preachy and shouty at times, especially on, but once it gets going there is some superb content

Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.

The content is very good but I found this difficult to listen to as the delivery was very sterile with little vocal variety.
For the past 4 years I've listened to at least an audiobook every month, many of which have been enthralling whereas this one has been a case of having to force myself to listen to it, because I want to hear the content, but because of the way it is delivered I have found it extremely hard to concentrate on it, which is a huge shame as the content is very good.

Absolutely loved it.
extremely funny and he's equally fair in picking apart the fairytales from many belief systems, plus detailing even more absurdities from many of them I was completely unaware of. Has some unexpected poignant and touching moments too, and an ending many wouldn't predict.

In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.

I downloaded this book yesterday and haven't finished it yet! I've been an Audible member for a few years and downloaded countless books, but never before has a book hit me so powerfully that I felt compelled to give a semi review before even finishing it!
There is some fantastic information in this book and would surely make anybody that really listens and takes in everything that is being said, change their eating habits; how could you not!? well, maybe if you weren't REALLY listening to what is being said, or couldn't possibly imagine having to do without meat at every meal (and consequently not bothered about the impact on your own health!).
Enjoying the content enormously -although it is a little scary at the same time in some ways, and by that I mean the power wielded by the huge food and pharma companies can stifle information that would be harmful to their profits and they are abided in this by governments with utter disregard to their own citizens! That is what is scary.
I have replayed certain chapters a few times already, to just let the mountain of information, really sink in.
Will be back to leave a fuller review when I've finished listening to it all a few times!
