9781606524299: When All Else Fails, Sell!: How Learning to Sell Can Change Your Life

How learning to sell changed the life of Mark Whitby,a U.S. Marine Lieutenant who suffered life-altering wounds after he saved his men during an attack in Afghanistan.
 

U.S. Marine Lieutenant Mark Whitby was escorting a top secret caravan through a dangerous area of Afghanistan when his convoy was attacked by insurgents. By springing into action, Whitby manages to save his men and more importantly the top-secret passenger, but not without getting severely wounded himself.

Regaining consciousness in a hospital, Whitby learns that his fighting days are over. Reluctantly, he tries to chart a new future for himself but keeps coming up empty-handed. Then a strange package arrives. He opens it to find an old, dog-eared Gideon's Bible with hundreds of passages underlined and highlighted. Inside is an envelope with a cryptic handwritten note: "When all else fails..." it reads.

Mark and his new young bride are then led on a treasure hunt of sorts by Mark's estranged grandfather, an ex-Marine war hero himself, who is also one of the greatest salesmen who has ever lived. Rather than give his grandson a large inheritance, he will teach him the 12 secrets to salesmanship and open his eyes to the joy of practicing the art of selling in order to equip him for a fulfilling and prosperous life.

Review:

When All Else Fails, Sell! left me feeling not only inspired and motivated but also a whole lot wiser, happier, and self-confident. It’s as if the essence of Og Mandino, Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, Norman Vincent Peale, Robert H. Schuller, Wayne Dyer, and Zig Ziglar are all rolled up into a modern fable that is served on a silver platter to all the wonderful souls who have served to protect America’s freedom so well and who now need a guide for their own future. A success guide for everyone of any age.”

Edward A. Taub, M.D.
Former Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Coast Guard

“When All Else Fails, Sell! is one of the most valuable and insightful books you can read, because it adheres to a philosophy of morally-based principles that will help everyone—whether or not your chosen profession is sales.”

William Ney

When All Else Fails, Sell! educates and inspires the reader to believe and conceive their boldest dreams and highest expression of life— a truly empowering book that will transform your life!”

Dr. James Rouse

“This book is so similar to my own life experiences as a salesperson. . . . It’s no secret that the same skills that make a good salesperson today have been the same throughout time—as referenced in this wonderful book. This book will inspire others who are not sure what career path to take...and show them how they too can be a great salesperson. I found this book to be an entertaining and inspiring read and you will, also!”
