I don’t usually make a habit of recommending a book I haven’t read, but in this case I will make an exception. My friend Butch Bellah’s The 10 Essential Habits of Sales Superstars: Plugging into the Power of Ten is free this week (Kindle Only). I have downloaded the book and will read it very soon.

While I don’t know the entirety of the content, I do know Butch. As a friend and “”leadership colleague,” I know the wealth of knowledge Butch has in the area of sales and leadership. Anything he puts to paper will be priceless.

The 10 Essential Habits of Sales Superstars is a thorough, easy-to-follow manual that lays out a roadmap for creating the habits that lead to increased sales results. Drawing on decades of successful experience selling, managing sales organizations, and training sales people, Butch Bellah has wisdom for the new salesperson and established veteran alike. — Amazon

Why is it free? Well, Butch hopes this effort will raise the book on the Amazon lists, so that he can help more people (and make more money.) So, you get to benefit from his efforts. The only investment you have is the time you will spend reading. Trust me, the return on that investment will be well worth it.

If I were to compare myself to Michael Hyatt, I would feel pretty inadequate. Michael’s “Intentional Leadership” blog has more than 365,000 total subscribers. I have 41 (as of this writing).

His blog averages more than 302,000 unique visitors per month. Mine averages 164.

Michael has nearly 167,000 Twitter followers. I have 287.

Sounds pretty depressing doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t depressing at all.

Things you shouldn’t say while on vacation

Don t bother me i m on vacation american apparel unisex fitted tee white w760h760

While vacationing with my family at the home of my sister-in-law and her husband, I tried to disconnect as much as possible. That being said, I found myself checking emails each morning and forwarding things to be handled, etc. in my absence. This routine left the rest of my day to enjoy time away from work.

One morning, while checking his email, my sister-in-law’s husband read me an auto-reply from one of his colleagues, who was also on vacation.

“What of do you think of this auto reply?” he asked.
