Rhinoceros Success


Scott Alexander

One of my all-time favorite reads. Develop your own permanent attitude of "never give up." Inspirational. Humorous. By the time I was half way through it, I had adopted the rhino as my personal mascot. Few things move me to that degree. Check it out.

Hung by the Tongue

 

Francis P. Martin

Be careful what you say; your words can come back and bite you. I didn't always believe that. Not until this book opened my eyes. One of my first business mentors "urged" me to read this book. About 10 pages into it, I began to understand why. Having trouble getting the responses you want from prospects? Read this. About 10 pages into it, and you'll know why I'm recommending it.

Positive Personality Profiles

 

Robert Rohm

Except for the Bible, no other book has affected my life so profoundly. Like it or not, you're in a people business. That means you better get good at dealing with, and communicating with, a wide variety of people. The only way to do so, is by gaining at least a basic understanding of human behavior. This book is the key. Make sure you order the associated profile assessment, or take the free assessment here.

Og Mandino

I won't even try to describe this one. If you haven't yet experienced this classic, ask yourself this: why would a book sell 25 million copies? Curious about what you've been missing? You should be.

This book isn't about network marketing in particular, but rather about networking in the general sense. It's about the "4 steps to priceless business relationships." When you think about it, isn't that the core of our profession?
