BIBLE – ENOUGH SAID…
THINK & GROW RICH – Napoleon Hill – this book has been called the “Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature.” It was the first book to boldly ask, “What makes a winner?” The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world’s winners himself. The most famous of all teachers of success spent “a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort” to produce the “Law of Success” philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized in this one.
RICH DAD, POOR DAD – Robert Kyiosaki – this book compares his poor dad to those people who are perpetually scampering in the Rat Race, helplessly trapped in a vicious cycle of needing more but never able to satisfy their dreams for wealth because of one glaring lack: financial literacy. They spend so much time in school learning about the problems of the world, but have not acquired any valuable lessons about money, simply because it is never taught in school. His rich dad, by contrast, represents the independently wealthy core of society who deliberately takes advantage of the power of corporations and their personal knowledge of tax and accounting (or that of their financial advisers) which they manipulate to their advantage. The book’s theme reduces to two fundamental concepts: a can-do attitude and fearless entrepreneurship.
THE RICHEST MAN IN BABYLON – George Clayson – this book dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom. By basing these parables in ancient times, but involving situations that modern people can understand and identify with, the author presents these lessons as timeless wisdom that is as relevant today as it was back then.
THE TIPPING POINT – Malcolm Caldwell – this book seeks to explain and describe the “mysterious” sociological changes that mark everyday life. As Gladwell states, “Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread like viruses do.” The examples of such changes in his book include the rise in popularity and sales of Hush Puppies shoes in the mid-1990s and the precipitous drop in the New York City crime rate after 1990.
CRACKING THE PRODUCERS CODE – Chad Wade – this book will assist you with creating your own personal why and goal sets, allowing you to connect with the original purpose that brought you to the direct sales and network market in the first place. After that you’ll be walked through the process of finding potential prospects, how to connect with them and share your story, get them to your company events and eventually ask them for the close.
