In the process of creating content for my speaking engagements, I make it a habit to interview “rockstar” efficiency sales professionals. These experts have a wealth of success (and horror) stories to share from their careers in the efficiency industry, and students learn a lot from the scar tissue that these folks share with me about what does and does not work. While the rock stars I interview each have unique stories and perspectives on effective selling, they all have one thing in common: they worked hard and they worked smart to become the rock star sales professionals that they are today.
Achieving success and becoming an industry leader takes more than a simple desire to be successful. One of my favorite self-help books on the topic is called Perform Like a Rock Star and Still Have Time for Lunch, by Orna Drawas. This book delves deeply into the day-to-day steps that you can take to achieve success. The content is spot-on and the illustrations, stories, and quotes make for a very enjoyable read. If you want to reach “rock star” status, I highly recommend reading this book and taking Drawas’ suggestions to heart.
Here’s a summary from Amazon Books:
“Everyone wants to be a star at some point in their life. Become a true leader, a real mover, and quite simply, someone who people can count on to make things happen. Inside the pages of Perform Like a Rock Star and Still Have Time for Lunch you can uncover ways to attain whole new levels in your own personal peak performance that can bring you greater success and fulfillment in your career than you ever thought possible - and still have time for lunch . . . and so much more."
