Sell Or Be Sold chapter 2

Chapter 2 in Sell or Be Sold was a shorter chapter than chapter 1 and so far has been the shortest chapter that I have read to this point, however it still gave me plenty of knowledge.


In this chapter it teaches you how if you can master the art of selling you are never without work. This is a good point to me because it’s so true. If you master the art of selling something, you’re set because there are millions of things in the world that you can sell. A lot of people who can’t sell have to depend on openings at companies to move in for what they have to offer. If you can sell, you’re literally welcomed to any company for sales.


If you learn how to control the entire cycle of selling from start to finish then you’re going to be able to do just about anything that you want to do in this world. You’ll be able to go where you want, do what you want, sell what it is you want to sell and know with complete conviction you can have whatever you want.


This was a bit of a shorter post today for chapter 2, however it wasn’t many pages in the first place. I will be back on in the next few days to post about what we learned in chapter 3.


Have a great day guys!!

Sell Or Be Sold Chapter 1

How’s it going folks?


Been a little while since I’ve posted on here and wanted to come on and post a little bit about a book I’m currently reading. The book is called Sell Or Be Sold by Grant Cardone. I’m currently on chapter 5 but I can already tell you that this book has reached out to me greatly.


Grant does a great job of explaining to you the significance of selling in your everyday life. People do not realize it but whether you know it or not you sell on a daily basis. Maybe your job title isn’t salesman but you are indeed selling on a daily basis to people.


I would like to get on here as much as possible over the course of me reading this book so that I can share what each chapter in this book is really about.


Chapter 1 in Sell Or Be Sold is title ‘ Selling- A Way Of Life’. This chapter talks about how selling impacts everyone on the entire planet. It says the more consistently you can win at selling, the more commissions you will make in your life. Everyone tends to believe that a commission means money. That is not correct however. A commission can be getting a girl to go out on a date with you. A commission can be getting an interview with a company you want to work for. It also Talks about how confrontation and putting pressure on people are tools used by amateurs in the selling industry. Selling as a profession can offer a great deal of freedom and numerous financial benefits.


I will be on here in the upcoming days to continue writing about my thoughts about the book and what it’s about.


Have a good one guys and be safe!!

Motivational/Inspirational speakers

As I stated in my opening post, this website was designed to inspire people out there who need inspiration or want more inspiration in their lives. I used to be a very negative person myself, however through different motivational/inspirational speakers, reading books, listening to audios, etc. I’ve done a pretty good job of turning my mindset around for the better.


I want to give you guys a list of some of those speakers I listen to to gain motivation and inspiration on a daily basis.


The first motivational speaker is a guy named Les Brown. Maybe my favorite speaker of all time, Les Brown was declared educable mentally retarded back when he was in grade school. He is now known as one of the most successful speakers to date. If you listen to his audios he uses the phrase “it’s possible!” as his main line. You can tell he has used this phrase as a catalyst for his own life. He tells the story of how people would laugh at him when he said his dream was to be a motivational speaker. One of my buddies who was a 2.0 GPA highschool/college student has grown his Akron plumbers company into one of the most successful if not THE most successful plumbing company in the Akron area. He claims that his success is directly related to listening to Les Bown’s advice over the years.


The next speaker is Tony Robbins. Tony Robbins is maybe the most well-known speaker of the list. Tony Robbins starred in the movie Shallow Hal for you movie freaks out there. I’ve ejoyed reading a couple of Tony’s books that he has had out and has sold millions of copies. The first one is Awaken The Giant Within. This book has taught me how to live my life to the fullest and how to control my thoughts and emotions. Unlimited Power and Unleash The Power Within are also two others favorites of mine that he has written.


The final person I’ll talk about for this post is Greg Plitt. I’m extremely into working out and fitness. Greg Plitt was a fitness motivator who has impacted millions of people. Unfortunately Greg died tragically after getting hit by a train but he certainly left his mark in the fitness game and motivational game overall.


I’ll be talking more and more about motivational speakers over time on this website but this is a start for people. Listen to audios and read books by these people and you will become unstoppable.
