Successful entrepreneurs tend to be good sales people. Even if they have never sold anything before leaving a 9 to 5 cubicle prison, they appreciate that they will have to sell first customers, first lenders and even first employees on why this new enterprise will be a rewarding place to work. Mastering good phone skills is one worthy objective and this book is a good primer for non-sales people who want to master the craft. Don't miss the chapter 'Planning and Tracking.'
