Publisher's Summary

You have to do it… you might as well enjoy it. No one likes a pushy, smarmy salesman – no one wants to be that guy ... but most of us need to sell to some extent. How else can we get any business? We all have to do it now, whether we're lawyers, accountants or start–ups. But don't despair – there's no need to go on some cringey sales training day.
How to be Great at the Stuff You Hate shows you how to develop all the skills you need to sell yourself, your business and your ideas. So ditch the dread, forget the fear and start enjoying yourself! Selling isn't something you 'do' to people, it's not some dark art practised by pushy and manipulative people – it's a process, it's a relationship ... it's fun!
All you need to do is cut the crap, be yourself and win some business. How to be Great at the Stuff You Hate shows you how to:

Pull together a target list – who do you want to approach and do business with?
Connect with those people – writing letters/emails Master meeting and networking – conquering small talk!

Good Book

This is a very good book particularly useful for UK professionals. Full of good advice and sensible strategies. Nothing ground breaking but well thought out and presented. And for those of us in professions a useful reminder of the things we know we should be doing for developing business!

Dumbed-down cliche

What disappointed you about How to Be Great at the Stuff You Hate?

There is much more in-depth material available in a more condensed format. By dumbing down and rehashing what's already out there, it makes the style jarring rather than accessible.

Performance was good.
