Publisher's Summary

You have to do it… you might as well enjoy it. No one likes a pushy, smarmy salesman – no one wants to be that guy ... but most of us need to sell to some extent. How else can we get any business? We all have to do it now, whether we're lawyers, accountants or start–ups. But don't despair – there's no need to go on some cringey sales training day.
How to be Great at the Stuff You Hate shows you how to develop all the skills you need to sell yourself, your business and your ideas. So ditch the dread, forget the fear and start enjoying yourself! Selling isn't something you 'do' to people, it's not some dark art practised by pushy and manipulative people – it's a process, it's a relationship ... it's fun!
All you need to do is cut the crap, be yourself and win some business. How to be Great at the Stuff You Hate shows you how to:


Pull together a target list – who do you want to approach and do business with?
Connect with those people – writing letters/emails Master meeting and networking – conquering small talk!

Simplifies Networking and Business Development

This book is really an outstanding example of how subjects on which volumes have been written -- networking and business development -- can be simplified into a straight-forward, common sense system that really works.

The book is great for lawyers because Nick was one and now works with lawyers. The book was written for an English audience, but it still translates well for application in the U.S.

The book is well-paced and the narration is well-done. If you don't like selling and business development, this is a good book to get you started, and is a reference you can come back to again and again.
