David Newman suggests YOU Grow Your Business with a Book!

One of the fastest ways to grow your business (especially now) is with a book that positions you as an expert.

Why?

Because as opposed to webinars or events a book gives your prospect instant gratification.  They are able to download it and consume it the exact moment they see it.

So what?

When your prospects download your book, you grow your email list and the book does most of the lead conversion for you.
Since you’re sharing your expertise, by the time you’re on the phone with your ideal client, they already know exactly what you’re about.  And that’s just one of the many ways you can leverage a book to grow your business (others include mentioning your book during online events, using it as direct mail to high-level decision-makers, and having the star power of showing up on real shelves in real bookstores and libraries – remember those?)

So now what?

Having a book sure sounds great — but how do you get yours done when you have a business to run?
Meet Alinka Rutkowska, she’s a USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author and the CEO of Leaders Press where she helps busy entrepreneurs get books done.  For example she helped the co-founder of DHL International get his book done and onto the bookshelves together with World Economic Forum speakers and Nobel prize winners.  Every book she launches becomes a best-seller and she breaks down her process into 17 steps, which she packaged into her FREE book titled, Outsource Your Book.

A naked lady hailed a taxi.  She got into the taxi.  The taxi driver looked her up and down.

Hailing a Taxi has Risks

Lady:  Have you never seen a naked woman before?

Taxi driver:  I have seen before.

Lady:  Then, why are you looking me up and down for so long?  Can we get moving, please.

Taxi driver:  But, I have yet to see any evidence that you have money on you.

  • Focus on your business.
  • Know distractions when you see them.

** ** **

How do you concentrate more on business … Integrity and values are critical here!

It’s rare for people to just say yes or no.  We seem to need to qualify our responses to the point that we dilute and weaken our meanings.  Try just saying yes or no without qualifying or explaining.  It’s not easy, but it’s so powerful.

When you’re about to start a meeting or begin a conversation with someone, ask yourself;

“What do I want to say?  What specific outcome do I want?  How can I make myself easily understood?”

As Zig Ziglar says, “The person who will not stand for something will fall for anything.”

So … what has this to do with a naked lady hailing a taxi … a lot!

If the taxi driver’s primary reason for driving this cab was to be of REAL service … how he got paid should have not mattered.  Our clue comes from the lady when she asks, “Can we get moving, please?”

I want you to think about this for a few minutes, okay!  😉

Good morning. Retail sales came in with a blowout number, sending stocks to all-time highs and reversing a pre-market drop.  The reason is thanks to the last round of stimulus payments.  While earlier rounds made their way into the stock market, Bitcoin, or paying down a credit card, it’s clear from the retail numbers that many are spending. Governments and central banks are also likely noticing the impact as well.  If inflation numbers don’t materially rise and stay higher, the lesson may be learned that money can be created seemingly infinitely, as long as it’s designed to be spent.  Like

Good morning. Typically, April 15th is the day taxes from the prior year are due. 2021, like 2020, has seen a delay in payment.  Add in extensions, and you can float your payment to Uncle Sam for a year well into the autumn of the next. Tax talk hasn’t been too big in the past year.  For those on the upward part of the K-shaped recovery, it’s been withheld from their jobs as it’s been made.  For those on the lower end, there’s been less made to tax, or even the lower tax rates on unemployment benefits.  At some point,

Good morning. Coinbase is expected to make its initial public offering today.  Analysts have provided expectations for the company to trade as high as $600 per share, and potentially with a valuation of $148 billion.  That would make for one of the largest companies to go public in history. With cryptocurrency prices rushing to new all-time highs ahead of the IPO, and with estimates getting increasingly bullish for the space, this big IPO could be a sign of a top.  While the chart patterns suggest such a top is a long way off, traders should watch to see how shares

Good morning. The stock market is forward-looking.  And it’s been looking forward to this earnings season.  It’s a chance for companies to report solid numbers for the first quarter of 2021.  Earnings are expected to not only be good compared to the 4th quarter, but will also provide a strong view relative to the first quarter of 2020, when stocks had to first start pricing in the pandemic. But the real question is, what happens after earnings?  With some solid numbers likely, and with many companies still avoiding any future guidance, the next few weeks may lead to a big

Good morning. The Bureau of Labor Statistics was down early on Friday, as traders looked to see the latest inflation numbers.  With a consumer price index level up 1.0 percent month over month, or twice what was expected, inflation numbers are certainly looking up. Over time, high inflation makes it difficult for companies to provide accurate estimates of costs.  Projects are delayed, and the economy and the stock market contract.  While some of that fear has been bubbling up, for the time being, a quarter or two of extra inflation may not cause a big market selloff.  Traders can potentially

How to set boundaries … and say NO You know, when we were younger, we were wisely taught by our parents, teachers, and law enforcement officials to say NO.  Somewhere along the lines, however, we lost our way.  We started feeling bad about saying no, and we began saying yes…to everything.  The result?  We stretch ourselves thin by taking on anything and everything that comes our way – often reluctantly, begrudgingly, and resentfully.  This happens in our personal and professional lives, and it not only creates overwhelming (yet unnecessary) stress, it also puts tremendous strain on our relationships. In our
