The World of Sales, Through Pink Colored Lenses

I first “met” Dan Pink via an article he wrote in Fast Company magazine, back in 1997, called Free Agent Nation.  Having just gone out on my own as an independent consultant, this article really resonated with me, on a number of levels.  Not the least of which was his estimate  that 25 million other Americans were doing the same thing – eschewing the normal 9-5-working-for-the-man routine.  I found both comfort and inspiration in Dan’s article.

Around that time, I was heading up the Boston chapter of Company of Friends, a networking group promoted by Fast Company magazine.   I was privileged to host Dan as a speaker on a couple of occasions, and soon realized that this man is a thinker and a visionary, who has a sharp eye for what is going on in the world of business.

Dan’s books and public speaking have inspired millions of people over the years, which is why I am excited to help him announce the publication of his new work, To Sell is Human.  This book is another example of Dan’s vision, this time applied to the sales arena.  Feel free to view the short video below.

To inspire interest in this book, Dan has some great pre-publication order give-aways, which you should read about here.  In order to get these goodies, you must order before December 30, 2012.  Do it.  Stay ahead of the game!

Full disclosure: I’m a member of the To Sell Is Human launch team and will be receiving the goodies above as well as the advance reading copy of the book and a signed copy of the hardcover. I’m not being paid for my review (good or bad) or receiving any other compensation. I’ve paid for all the other copies of Dan’s books that I own as well as those I’ve given away as gifts. In other words, I’m not in this for the freebies and accolades of the fawning masses but because I really like Dan’s books and ideas.
