1039. How One Book Turned Into a Whole Publishing Company
“I used my first book to just get me through doors. I would send my book with a handwritten note and say, ‘Hey, I think I can help your people. Give me a shot.’ Or I would say, ‘If you’ve got a sales meeting, let me come and I’ll give you a free sales presentation. And if your people get fired up, maybe we’ll talk about doing more.’ I gave the books away to get an opportunity. And I believed that people were going to want what I offered. It’s going to be self-evident. I just need to show up and be my best. And if nothing else, I’ll give people a great show for a day. And that’s been my philosophy the entire time.”
