For some of us honing a particular skill or owning a niche is the key to making it. However, the path to success is rarely the same for everyone in sales. Some of us are more adept when we focus on “specialties,” which involves honing skills in different areas and linking them together.
Pat Flynn is one of those people — a sales professional, coach, athlete and bestselling author. As you can see, this is someone who is putting their eggs in more than one basket. In How to Be Better at Almost Everything he explains how this makes you stand apart from your competition. If you can find a way to combine your skill sets, you may find yourself covering more ground and talking to more prospects than before.
Here is the summary from Amazon:
“Mastering one specific skill set might have been the key to success 20 years ago . . . but being the best at a single thing just doesn’t cut it in today’s global economy.
“Think about those people who somehow manage to be amazing at everything they do—the multimillionaire CEO with the bodybuilder physique or the rock star with legions of adoring fans. How do they manage to be so great at life?
