9780071791380: Rules of the Hunt: Real-World Advice for Entrepreneurial and Business Success

Break a Few Rules and Build the Career of Your Dreams! 
 
Rules of the Hunt is much more than a book about Sales, Marketing, and Business. You'll also get rule breaking advice for attaining Business and Life Success. 
 
·         Avoid meetings with more than three people in attendance.
·         Raise your prices and sell more.
·         Look at business strictly as a form of playing.
·         Don't tell people what to do. (There is a better way to get what you want.)
·         Turn down invitations to business lunches.
·         Drop in on your competitors.
 
You'll learn things they don't teach in business schools. You'll get eye-opening, inspiring, and honest advice including unexpected business revelations and secrets for skyrocketing your Career. Best of all, you get the confidence-building guidance and encouragement you would expect from a world-class mentor.
 
The author points out that there is no magic formula for success. He writes that winning, both in business and in life, is about gaining an accumulation of small advantages. This book is written to show you how to grab those all-important advantages and put them to work for you. 
 
With humor and clarity, this book gives you priceless ideas and surprising revelations into Sales and MarketingLeadership, Communication, People, Career Success, and Self Growth.
 
There's a lot there. You also get hundreds of eye-opening insights (and a few bombshells) about Entrepreneurship, Business Operations, Integrity and Human Nature. You get it all in brief business anecdotes, short tutorials, case histories, an occasional rant, and a few horror stories.
 
Rules of the Hunt is refreshingly human, down to earth and straightforward.  It's easy to read and you'll find nothing preachy, just friendly career and life-changing advice. It offers wisdom that will make your hunt for success easier and more rewarding. It's not hard to imagine sitting face to face with the author and getting his advice personally.
 
"To say that Rules of the Hunt is one of the most unusual business books I've ever read or reviewed would be an understatement."
--Ivana Taylor, Editor, Small Business Trends
 
Profit from this experienced and successful entrepreneur's knowledge of human nature, business and life. Order your copy today and learn ways to outfox the competition, track down big profits, maintain your sanity, keep your health and integrity and go home early. You'll be glad you did.
