Like it or not, we live in a digital-first age, where your first interaction with someone will likely be online. Which means, it is now possible to make a first impression even while you sleep. How does this impact your career? Studies have shown over 9o% of recruiters today, search for candidates online before they decide to give them a call. Is your brand ready for this? I have spent the last five years understanding how this digital-first world applies to and impacts our careers. This book is the culmination of what I have learned. Credibility has always been the key to unlocking career opportunities. In the not so distant past, credibility was earned by your time in a position, perceived company loyalty, and of course your level of expertise in your field. The challenge with this is that credibility was only recognized locally, within the four walls of your company. However, thanks to the Internet, you can now earn your career credibility, or CareerKred as I call it, globally, by intentionally building your personal brand, establishing your digital brand, providing thought leadership, and engaging with those interested in your field of study. In fact, with the right digital brand you can be recognized for your expertise globally. You are no longer confined by your company's four walls. During the course of this book, you will learn how to build your digital brand and use it to establish your CareerKred online. By following the 4 simple steps of the process I call D.I.C.E., you will learn how to define your brand, integrate your brand online, position your brand in your area of expertise and engage with your audience. This simple 4-step process will help you build a modern day digital brand that will set you apart from your competition and help you get recognized for your expertise, even if you don't know where to start. With the changes to the career landscape accelerating, it's time to take your brand global. It's time to establish your digital brand now, before you need it. This book will show you how.

Build better relationships and Sell More Effectively With a Powerful SALES STORY “Throughout our careers, we have been trained to ask diagnostic questions, deliver value props, and conduct ROI studies. It usually doesn’t work; best case, we can argue with the customer about numbers—purely a left brain exercise, which turns buyers off. This book explains a better way.” —John Burke, Group Vice President, Oracle Corporation “Forget music, a great story has charm to soothe the savage beast and win over the most challenging customer. And one of the best guides in crafting it, feeling it, and telling it is What Great Salespeople Do. A must-read for anyone seeking to influence another human being.” —Mark Goulston, M.D., author of the #1 international bestseller Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone “Good salespeople tell stories that inform prospects; great salespeople tell stories that persuade prospects. This book reveals what salespeople need to do to become persuasive story sellers.” —Gerhard Gschwandtner, publisher of Selling Power “This book breaks the paradigm.

Hibbard, President, Dialexis IncTM “What Great Salespeople Do humanizes the sales process.” —Kevin Popovic, founder, Ideahaus® “Mike and Ben have translated what therapists have known for years into a business solution—utilizing and developing one’s Emotional Intelligence to engage and lessen the defenses of others.

Top-performing salespeople have always had a knack for forging connections and building relationships with buyers. Until now, this has been considered an innate talent. What Great Salespeople Do challenges some of the most widely accepted paradigms in selling in order to prove that influencing change in buyers is a skill that anyone can learn. The creator of Solution Selling and CustomerCentric Selling, Michael Bosworth, along with veteran sales executive Ben Zoldan, synthesize discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and other disciplines, combining it all into a field-tested framework—helping you break down barriers, build trust, forge meaningful relationships, and win more customers. This book teaches you how to: Relax a buyer’s skepticism while activating the part of his or her brain where trust is formed and connections are forged Use the power of story to influence buyers to change Make your ideas, beliefs, and experiences “storiable” using a proven story structure Build a personal inventory of stories to use throughout your sales cycle Tell your stories with authenticity and real passion Use empathic listening to get others to reveal themselves Incorporate storytelling and empathic listening to achieve collaborative conversations with buyers Breakthroughs in neuroscience have determined that people don’t make decisions solely on the basis of logic; in fact, emotions play the dominant role in most decision-making processes.

Becoming a New You is all about getting the exercise you need and the right nutrition. It's simple, easy and healthy. How do you do it? You Move More, Sit Less & Eat Right! Eating right is enjoying a wide variety of food in the right amounts. A New You will take you beyond where you are today with tips on running, biking, resistance training and apparel. You will soon understand how and why your body thrives on exercise and good nutrition. Moving more and eating right will help you become healthier, happier and better prepared to enjoy everything life has to offer. There is an epidemic of inactivity and overeating that has been labeled obesity. How do we change that? We need to understand why exercise is so important. We have to realize that there is time to exercise. We must learn more about the food we eat. What's bad, what's good and how much is too much. And, we have to begin eating regularly and quit the sugary snacks. You'll soon have more energy and be more excited about life. You'll want to take time often throughout every day to do something physical and it doesn't have to be a lot. After you've done this for a while, you'll go to bed at night to get a good nights sleep and wake up feeling alive, full of energy and ready to be that New You all day long. Remember, all you have to do is Move More, Sit Less & Eat Right! What I have in store for you will get you there quickly. You can easily fit exercise and eating right into your schedule. There is more you can do and more you should know. You will understand how your body works and why it works that way. There are tips and programs for everyone. It's easy to discover which nutrients you need daily and which ones you don't get enough of. There are handy reference guides you can use so you don't have to memorize a thing. A little exercise, each hour of the day, added to a little biking or walking, can add years to your life. Quality years where you're enjoying every day, getting more done and feeling fabulous. You will soon discover how your body benefits from exercise and eating certain foods. I provide hundreds of ways for you to get the little exercise you need. I talk about standing up, sitting down, bouncing, walking, crawling, climbing stairs, jumping, yard work, swimming, house work, hiking, biking, jogging, running, sit ups, push ups, leg lifts, weights, jumping jacks, stretching, treadmills, cross trainers, snow skiing and a whole lot more. Plus, I take you into the world of fitness clubs. You'll learn that you really don't have to join a fitness club to simply be healthier, happier, thinner and live longer. But if you want more, I provide you with all you need to know about interval workouts, training for a marathon, weight training, bike racing, aerobics classes, bootcamps, shoes and clothing. We've created thorough, easy to read information about vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fats, carbohydrates, calories, water, coffee and a lot more. Everything you need to know about nutrition. The Sitting Warning! Today, the average individual in this country, even those that exercise regularly, sits for 70% to 90% of the day. That's more harmful than we ever realized. Sitting for long periods of time can weaken muscles and decrease overall fitness. It can take years off your life. The evidence that sitting too long increases the risk of obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes continues to accumulate. Just working out for 30 to 60 minutes a day, even every day, doesn't do the trick either. You'll discover how to fix that. What you need to do, how to do it and all the reasons why you should."I hope you enjoy reading A New You. But more importantly, I hope you will use this book to become the you that you want to be or the best you that you can be. That New You I talk about. Changing your daily program does take a little time so be patient. Don't Count The Days - Make The Days Count!
