Smile & Succeed for Teens: Must Know People Skill for Today’s Wired World.
Read your book SMILE and loved the practical how-to common sense approach. Every teenager getting their first service job whether in retail or restaurant should be required to read it. Poor customer service is a pet-peeve of mine, from anyone of any age. Can’t wait to read your next two books!
I love Smile & Succeed for Teens! The tips work. This book is amazing!
Smile & Succeed for Teens is perfect for today’s children and young adults! It is concise, has entertaining characters to convey the message, and gives practical examples to use in today’s world. This book covers basic manners, teaches sales techniques but also skills on how to sell themselves as the best candidate when applying for a job. A suprise bonus is the chapter, Be A Rock Star, which addresses the personal benefits of fundraising and volunteering and looks great on a resume’. In each chapter includes fun-filled facts or tips and websites for more information on a specific topic. Well done, Mr. Manecke, five stars!
I bought Smile & Succeed for Teens to get my child to put away his iPad.
A little gem of a book that all teens should read. Details common sense hints to help teens gain the people skills they need to get and keep a job, as well as succeed in school settings. The layout is pleasing and easy to read. Wish I’d have had it when my children were teens!
