“The Zen of Sales” by Todd Schnick

On June 7th I published a terrific guest post by my friend and North America’s Best colleague Todd Schnick entitled “The Zen of Sales.” Now Todd has published an ebook with the same title—The Zen of Sales, available on Amazon.com for only $0.99. I doubt you’ll ever find a better bargain. Todd is a writer, speaker, marketing strategist, and radio-show host and producer.  You can find him at his website http://intrepid-llc.com/ and sign up for his content marketing class at .

The Zen of Sales is a short 43 pages, but packed full of a sales philosophy of important reminders that old pros and rookies will greatly benefit from. In the Foreword, Todd says, “…we complicate sales way too much. We need to simplify. And focus on the HUMAN side of sales.” This ebook is going to help you do that! And it’s only $0.99!

The book is formatted into an Introduction and 16 chapters:

Chapter One – In Sales, If You Ain’t Adapting, You Are Losing

The old cliché about books is that if it gives you even only one great idea, it’s well worth the money and time you devoted to the book. The Zen of Sales is a quick read that gave me a number of ideas, which would have been worth my time and money at ten times the price. I hope you’ll download it today. If you do, please let me know what it provided you.
