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.

Grab your copy now to discover:

    • How to position your book so that it’s a bestseller — you have to do this before it’s written;
    • How to hire the right interviewer who can get your ideas out of your head;
    • How to turn your ideas into a masterfully crafted manuscript;
      The three different types of editing, and which ones you need;
    • Where to hire a designer for an attention-grabbing cover, and why the right cover can make or break your book sales;
    • How to optimize your book for online sales so that it pops up on top of any search results;

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!  😉

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
