Advice From The Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire in History

Advice From The Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire in History | Good News For A Change |

I had the opportunity to attend the keynote presentation of Sara Blakely, Founder of Spanx.  In her one-hour talk, Sara highlighted her fascinating journey from launching a start-up with $5000 in savings to becoming the youngest self-made female billionaire in history. Anyone who’s heard Sara’s story knows it’s exhilarating and motivating, but to see her live brings a new dimension to her story.

The blessing of being a US citizen...create your success. I work with a lot of start-ups and entrepreneurs. The difference between those who succeed and those that don't is fear and no funding. Overcome fear by finding experts you can rely on and spend wisely.

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest | Good News For A Change |

Finally this article says what everyone should know about sale, but it's also valid both in the social media world and, of course, in the real life. Be a person who gives is always the best path to receive more in return, even if you do not expect that and it's not your goal. [note Martin Gysler]



Bob Burg, co-author of The Go-Giver, says high-pressure sales are the wrong way to go.


To many people, sales is a shady profession, predicated on shark-like closing techniques, manipulation, and shallow, transactional relationships. Bob Burg says that’s exactly the wrong approach. “Top salespeople, the best of the best, understand that when it comes to selling, it isn’t about them or their product or service.
