Sandra L Kurtzig with Tom Parker | CEO | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff On the last Monday of every month, my book review will highlight a female founder or business owner. Most of these women started a company from their homes with less than $10,000. CEO: Building a $400 Million Company from the Ground Up by Sandra Kurtzig is the next book in our female founder series. I devoured this book in a single weekend and loved this story. Although the author had an IT company, I found there were so many things I could learn and use in my own business. The author openly shares her challenges growing and leading a team and in navigating her personal life. I learned a lot about the interplay between the vital resources of talent, connections, and cash. There are lessons in this book for a leader of any size business. #femalefounder #femaleentrepreneur #smallbusiness #CEO #startup #challenges #teambuilding #talent #connections #cash #bookreview Related Videos More of Lisa’s book reviews: Napoleon Hill | Think & Grow Rich Chet Holmes | The Ultimate Sales Machine Perry Marshall | 80/20 Rule Tom Barrett | Dare to Dream Work to Win Rebecca Matthias | Mother’s Work…

Napoleon Hill | Think & Grow Rich | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff
Video / March 25, 2020

Napoleon Hill | Thing & Grow Rich | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff March is all about sales. I share books that have influenced how I sell, the sales process I use, and how I have been able to create enough income to keep a small business alive, growing, and thriving for 8 years. Today I am reviewing the book Think and Grow Rich written by Napoleon Hill. This book moves from sales strategies and principles to the mindset of selling. Instead of teaching the tactics of being a good sales person, this book helps develop the emotions required to make sales. We all have beliefs that are inside of our head that hold us back. This book really simplifies success into two key principles that I explain in the video. I also share with you how I applied these two keys into Organize 365 and how they have helped me find success and share the mission of our company. Make sure to watch to learn these for yourself!

Chet Holmes | The Ultimate Sales Machine | Book Review | Lisa Woodruff March is all about sales. I share books that have influenced how I sell, the sales process I use, and how I have been able to create enough income to keep a small business alive, growing, and thriving for 8 years. The Ultimate Sales Machine: Turbocharge Your Business with Relentless Focus on 12 Key Strategies by Chet Holmes is a book I first read back in 2015 when I was first starting to grow the Organize 365 team as a corporate team. At this time, the business began to sell physical products rather than professional organizing services. This book gives education and case studies on many important topics in building a functional business including time management, training, effective meetings, strategy, hiring, and customers. If you want to learn how to build your business and actually sell your product, I recommend this book. #sales #ultimatesalesmachine #marketing #entrepreneur #corporation #alwaysbelearning #bookreview Related Videos More of Lisa’s book reviews Perry Marshall | 80/20 Rule Tom Barrett | Dare to Dream Work to Win Rebecca Matthias | Mother’s Work Gretchen Rubin | The Four Tendencies Sally Hogshead | How the World…

Perry Marshall | 80/20 Rule | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff My March book reviews are all about sales. I share books that have influenced how I sell, the sales process I use, and how I have been able to create enough income to keep a small business alive, growing, and thriving for 8 years. 80/20 Sales and Marketing: The Definitive Guide to Working Less and Making More by Perry Marshall takes the traditional 80/20 rule and applies it specifically to sales and marketing. In my book review, I explain how I saw the 80/20 rule in action as a professional organizer and I use it in the 100 Days Home Organization Program. As a business owner, I learned about spending time and effort on the most important things, how to understand the “power curve,” and how to determine what to delegate. This book really helped me to scale Organize 365 and I highly recommend it. @PerryMarshall Purchase the book: OR 8020 Book For One Cent #PerryMarshall #80/20 #8020 #sales #marketing #powercurve #entrepreneur #womanownedbusiness Follow me on Goodreads! https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/58789567-lisa-woodruff FTC: This video is not sponsored.

Gretchen Rubin | The Four Tendencies | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff Gretchen Rubin’s book The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better (and Other People’s Lives Better, Too) has been a game changer in my understanding of personality and uniqueness. The four tendencies are how you decide if you are going to do something. Some people respond to what others tell them to do, and others respond best to their internal decisions. Knowing how you respond to expectations will help you understand how to set up your to do list and priorities. This book helped me to understand myself and others in order to have better interactions with them.

Malcolm Gladwell | Outliers & The Tipping Point | Book Review
Video / January 21, 2020

As I continue to review different thought leaders, this week I want to review Malcolm Gladwell. This writing will make you think so differently about every single thing you have ever thought about. I prefer audiobooks for his writing, and I listened to these on Audible. Outliers – This book reviews the story of success. It evaluates why and how we succeed. He explains how many times being in the right time and right place will ensure success. Available on Amazon and Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/1439.Malcolm_Gladwell The Tipping Point – In this book, Malcolm Gladwell digs deep on the one dramatic moment when everything can change all at once.This book explains how this happens (and I do my best to explain his teaching). In the book, he explains that businesses fail because they cannot get these three factors together to achieve the tipping point.

William Strauss and Neil Howe | Generations | Book Review

William Strauss and Neil Howe | Generations | Book Review Generations: The History of America’s Future, 1584 to 2069 helped me get clarity and articulate thoughts I had when I was doing in home professional organizing. The authors look at how generations repeat in archetypes and in dominant/recessive patterns. This book allowed me to understand how each generation and their influences have shaped the people around us. It crystallized my thinking about who we are in the world and how we interact with each other.
