From the Inside Flap
Business had changed. For years, as VP of Sales and Marketing at Wolfson Furniture, Ryan Miller easily created steady growth and success. Then the economy tanked. Sales dwindled. Marketing efforts flopped. Wolfson Furniture was suddenly on the ropes. Ryan's future, once golden, seemed dim. But life is mysterious. Just when all seems lost, serendipity lends a hand.
For Ryan, fate takes the persona of Lenny, an old high school friend. Having found happiness in Hasidic Judaism, Lenny now runs a packaging company in Brooklyn. "Business is booming, even in the down economy!" he tells Ryan excitedly. So what's Lenny's secret?
Roar! gives you a seat at the table as these two friends reconnect, and Ryan discovers how to revitalize his sales and marketing approach. Lenny's sales and marketing process is 3,500 years old and is beautifully simple, yet goes ignored by most companies.
