Do you mind if I tell you a quick story?
One evening two years ago, I was at home with my astonishingly beautiful wife, and found myself in a familiar quandary. Something was bothering her, so as she vented to me about it (isn't that what spouses are for?), in typical boorish male fashion, I was champing at the bit to share with her my brilliant solution to her problem.
Recalling a tactic that I had learned in the context of sales, instead of jumping in with something like, "I'll tell you what you ought to do!" I listened, and then calmly asked permission: "Sweetie, can I tell you what I would do if it were me?"
You're not going to believe it. After a moment's thought... she said yes!
So I got to share with her a viable solution and I wasn't the bad guy!
It was in that moment that I realized: the skills that I had been learning weren't sales skills--they were communication skills!
I hope you'll snag a copy of this free e-book, and see how these simple little tactics can have a HUGE impact on both your business and your relationships.
