Summary

Most people are visual learners, not readers. This book would give people a way to easily access the strategies and tactics in Book Yourself Solid. The book provides a true understanding of why self-promotion is a critical factor to success. Michael helps the reader adopt this perspective and then provides the strategies, techniques, and skills necessary to get more clients and increase profits. Reengineering the book from a visual perspective has given Michael new ways of explaining the material. This new book has transformed the Book Yourself Solid system into a more compelling and easy to consume playbook for the business owner. It is organized into four modules: Module One: Your Foundation Module Two: Building Trust and Credibility Module Three: Simple Selling and Perfect Pricing Module Four: The Book Yourself Solid 7 Core Self Promotion Strategies
