[Legacy post: Small Business Talent] My guest on the podcast today is Daniel Pink. Yes, that Daniel Pink. You know him. He’s the author of five provocative books, including the long-running New York Times bestsellers A Whole New Mind and Drive.
His latest book, To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, is a New York Times business bestseller (#1), a Wall Street Journal bestseller (#1), and also a Washington Post non-fiction bestseller (#1).
Personally, I’ve been following Dan’s work since late 1997 when I happened to read an article that he wrote in Fast Company Magazine titled Free Agent Nation. Looking back now that article was a catalyst that moved me towards becoming a self-employed free agent myself.
Is it possible that Dan’s new book is the positive catalyst that you and your business need right now? If your goal is to acquire and retain more of your ideal clients, then the information that Dan shares in To Sell is Human can help you make that goal a reality.
