Sales development is one of the fastest growing careers in the United States. It is fast-paced, often on the leading edge of technology, and people in the role have the possibility of making a ton of money! Unlike accounting, medicine, or law, most salespeople do not study their profession in college. Instead, they are tossed into the fray without much training, context, or support, and are left to sink or swim. This method proves neither efficient or effective for the individual or the company. Sales Development is written specifically for the job seeker or individual contributor who has aspirations of success in a sales development role and beyond. This is your personal guidebook to the how, why, and what-to-do´s of the sales development profession. Written practically and tactically, this book shows you how to get the job, how to perform, and how to position yourself for advancement. Based upon 10 years of teaching sales development representatives in the fastest-growing companies in the United States, this book will launch you on your path to becoming a rock star. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cory Bray.

I wrote this guidebook of essentials, for new entrepreneurs to essentially cut through the vast world of information that seems to exist on the internet. The spirit of this audiobook is to be helpful and share things that I know from real world experience. I don´t want you to fail in your first year. I don´t want you to fail any year, but especially the first. It is such a hard heartbreak to get over. The first year is when your excitement and drive is at its peak, and it should also be the time that you setup a workflow that actually helps you stay ahead of the game. That is what this Do-It-Yourself guidebook will help you do, in a very no-nonsense, straightforward kind of way, unlike a University approved entrepreneurship and small business development textbook. This audiobook is meant to be functional and based on years and years of experience operating small businesses and assisting entrepreneurs in the real world - the everyday, nitty-gritty stuff that keeps us compliant and able to see a growing bottom line through do-it-yourself means. Also, the fact that I have helped many other small business owners who were overwhelmed get caught up with their books, tax reporting and corporate paperwork and helped them have a streamlined workflow that is compliant for their industry makes me know that this will work for you. But only if you do what is recommended. Implement the suggestions, email me and ask questions, bring your business just one level up from where it is now and see the profitable difference and the time and stress it will save you to do this stuff. You will be glad you did. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackson Whitt. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/010680/bk_acx0_010680_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Starting a business is always tough - especially in the food industry and, particularly, for restaurant businesses. Among other things, you´ll have to please a discerning clientele (who will post reviews online before they could finish their meals), deal with fresh produce and other perishables (that have shelf lives always too short), and keep in line a likely diverse kitchen staff (whose attitudes tend to clash). Another proof that the restaurant business is tough: Around half of all restaurant ventures fold-up in losses. This is, of course, due to varying reasons - although the complications that restaurant owners face are more or less the same. So, is starting a restaurant even a viable prospect these days? Or are restaurant start-ups doomed to fail? The answer: Restaurant businesses are not all doomed to fail, and starting one can be a worthwhile endeavor. After all, every man and woman alive still need to eat. This means there will always be potential clientele that your restaurant can feed and profit from. The important question is, how can you successfully start a restaurant and produce a steady (and healthy) profit? That´s exactly what this book will teach you how to do. I´m going to guide you through all the preparation and steps you need to take to launch a restaurant business and get positive returns within the year. I´ll talk you through the essentials of starting a business, including how to get funding, how to hire the right people, how to develop a menu as well as what traps to avoid to make sure your restaurant remains successful. Let´s get started! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D. Johnston. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/117484/bk_acx0_117484_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The attention strategic planning has attracted in the recent years is the proof that it is evidently used by successful businesses. Executives and managers alike plan their business objectives and the goals in a strategic manner.

Scrum is a simple framework that allows us to complete projects, continuously improve, and get an early return on investment. Author note: ´´I write this text as a certified scrum master with experience in international blue-chip companies dating back to 1999. That experience includes leading projects for the BBC, General Electric, Oracle, BSkyB, HiT Entertainment (responsible for Angelina Ballerina, Bob the Builder, and other titles that you love watching with your kids or siblings but won´t admit to) and Razorfish. These roles have all involved leadership on a wealth of mobile, Internet TV, and web software projects. I have played the role of scrum master and, in the earlier years, of team lead and technical lead. I have had the privilege of running projects and rolling out working practices in market-leading organizations from start to finish.´´ If you want to improve your ability to deliver a scrum project, then this audiobook is for you. The book does not give you magic-wand techniques but instead focuses your attention on: Where you should go to understand the fundamentals of scrum What mind-set will give you results How to leverage scrum to get the best results The techniques are right under your nose, but many do not even notice them. 1.
