Update from Denise Lee Yohn.


Dear friends and colleagues,

Do you watch Shark Tank?  I love the show, in part because of the business insights and lessons it conveys.  For example I've learned a lot about how to make a successful sales pitch.  Even though many of us are not in official sales roles, we all have to sell something -- whether it's our ideas to company leaders, our rules to our children, or ourselves to hiring managers and prospective clients.  So this brief covers "Five Secrets to Successful Selling from Shark Tank."  Also included is the scoop on my new upcoming book, Extraordinary Experiences, and how you can get a sneak preview.

Hope to hear from you soon!
