Smile & Succeed for Teens: Must Know People Skill for Today’s Wired World.
I work in a sales role at a national non-profit, and was really struggling. Smile offered a step by step guide to my job, even though I’m not selling a tangible product. The tips are transferable and they are presented in a straight to the point and easy to apply/process format. Manecke is honest when he says “the essential 60-minute crash course.” Because the short time commitment and the usefulness of the information, I recommend this book to anyone in a sales position.
To be honest…everybody needs this book.
You are going to get more sales if you know the fundamentals in Smile. Once you know these fundamentals, your batting average goes up 99%. With a minimal investment in training with this book, you get so much more ROI. If you just do these basic fundamentals in Smile you will make so much more money.
Every receptionist in America should have this book.
The book is valuable. For instance, I didn’t really know there was a specific way to shake someone’s hand.
I am a high school teacher and I’m always on the lookout for something that will actually help teens. I have little interest in books that appeal to teachers but have no appeal to the students. This book has that appeal. What I like about the book is that Kirt Manecke never put in a lot of the padding you see in most books on the subject. Kirt gets right to the point. I can tell you that teenagers want to get to the point quickly and this book does just that. While a teen might not encounter everything in the book, Manecke makes sure that everything is at your fingertips. I can recommend this book to parents of youngsters who are, or who will soon be, teenagers. I can also recommend it to my teaching colleagues who are looking for a perfect structure for a class that will really help teens.
