How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnege

How to Win Friends and Influence People

Dale Carnege

An essential book not only for every marketer, but anyone who wants to get anywhere in life. How to Win Friends and Influence People teaches us not only about marketing, but how to grow as a human being. We can learn how to treat others better and consider how our actions will affect others. The biggest takeaway for me is to not blame others for their attitudes. We don’t know what they’ve been through or the truths they’ve been conditioned to believe.

When you’re finished with those resources, consider business process optimisation to really grow your business and if you so desire, prepare it for sale.
