This book did a wonderful job concluded what REALLY matters to a business: create a system and create sales strategies, stay focus with consistent efforts.
When I came to my last job, it was chaotic and most people cannot last 3 months in that position. I used the ideas in this book, approached my boss, offered to help her to do an audit and see where went wrong, I wrote a training guide to standardize how we operate and things getting much better. I saw very little value to rehab our division because it does not bring in revenue, so I proposed the idea to help improving company's sales and marketing division. Then the company was hit by lawsuit so I wasn't able to.
This book can help your company dominate the market, position yourself, handle the growth and scale fast. The only piece missing is corporate finance.
Since I read at least 1 business and investing book per week I was constantly evolving. I realized merely has stunning sales record and a great business system would not be enough. Currently, I am learning how to read financial statement like lenders or investors. And I come to realization that majority of the management were not financially sophisticated enough. If you are the company executives, I would recommend you inspect how management spending on each and every check that comes out. Again, this is still something I learned from this book: if you want to find out where is the problem, you have to do a review and audit, you have to spend time working on the business not in the business.
There are a lot of fluffy books talk about leaderships and visions, they were nice to read but fail to make an impact to real business operations. This book stands out, it was packed with information, its specific, the ideas are actionable, unlike some other books only tells you half of the story and hope to upsale you to get another half, this book does the lead generation too, but it gives you the whole picture, you can use the ideas in this book and making impact right away! This book has no BS, it has almost everything you need to know to make your business the top 1%.
Holmes’ book is entertaining and powerful. He starts by focusing on habits – because so much of sales is habits and mindsets, gets into running effective meetings and creating strategies, then tackles sales team building, and attracting the best buyers.
It's highly readable and entertaining.
The biggest takeaways: Be disciplined. Stick to a few strategies and get really good at them. Figure out how to educate your market. Then go after them.
That said, it's the best book I've read on selling ever. If you buy the kindle version, you can put it on one screen while writing your business plan on another. Concise, It's to the point, readable, bo bulls***. Holmes never tells you it's easy. There's no secrets. Selling is HARD. deal with it.
The best parts, IMO, are the chapters on structure. Few sales books are written this way. Usually they give you live after line of disjointed happy crapple you can't use. Frankly, I find most of it nauseating. Holmes tells you do this, then this... hire this guy, then this guy, send out this, then this.
I expected more about this last step--closing--so as someone who doesn't have a lot of sales experience, I plan to buy another book for more guidance there. Nonetheless, I'm giving this book 5 stars for the excellent (if broad-ranging) information provided outside of simply closing.
