Rocket Fuel


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

You’re a Visionary. That’s the problem. You’ve already founded a successful business and have clear ideas for the future of your company. This has worked for you so far, but now business has stalled, and you’ve become overwhelmed, stuck, and frustrated. You may have a hunch that something or someone is missing – and you’re right. A great Visionary is only half of the equation for launching a company toward success. A solid partnership is the key to helping your business soar, and you need someone else to play a crucial role in taking your business to its maximum level. Enter the Integrator. This is the Visionary’s complement who has a talent for moving ideas forward: keeping varying tasks and schedules aligned, creating focus and accountability, and ensuring cohesion of people and processes. In other words, the Integrator takes a vision and executes it. From the author of the bestselling Traction, Rocket Fuel details the integral roles of the Visionary and Integrator and explains how an effective relationship between the two can thrive, and even offers advice to help Visionary-minded and Integrator-minded individuals find one another. Rocket Fuel also offers assessments so you’re able to determine whether you’re a Visionary or an Integrator so you can recognize your needs and then find the best partner to suit them. Without an Integrator, a Visionary is far less likely to succeed long-term ,and realize the company’s ultimate goals—likewise, with no Visionary, an Integrator can’t rise to his or her full potential. When these two people come together to share their natural talents and innate skill sets, they have the power to reach new heights for virtually any company or organization. Rocket Fuel is here. Time to ignite the booster for your next level. This explosive combination is the key to getting everything you want out of your business. It worked for Disney. It worked for McDonald’s. It worked for Ford. It can work for you.

Go Givers Sell More


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

With their national bestseller The Go-Giver, Bob Burg and John David Mann took the business world by storm, showing that giving is the most fulfilling and effective path to success. That simple, profound story has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers around the world-but some have wondered how its lessons stand up to the tough challenges of everyday real-world business. Now Burg and Mann answer that question in Go-Givers Sell More, a practical guide that makes giving the cornerstone of a powerful and effective approach to selling. Most of us think of sales as convincing potential customers to do something they don't really want to. This mentality sets up an adversarial relationship and makes the sales process much harder than it has to be. As Burg and Mann demonstrate, it's far more productive (and satisfying) when salespeople think like Go-Givers. Cultivate a trusting relationship and focus exclusively on creating value for the other person, say the authors, and great results will follow automatically. Drawing on a wide range of examples of real-life salespeople who have prospered by giving more, Burg and Mann offer tips and strategies that anyone in sales can start applying right away.
