Unlocking Yes Sales Negotiation Lessons & Strategy by Patrick Tinney

Unlocking Yes Sales Negotiation Lessons & Strategy by Patrick Tinney


About The Book:

Unlocking Yes: Sales-Negotiation Lessons & Strategy specifically addresses the negotiation needs of sales professionals. Using real-life examples, learn how to engage professional buyers who are well-schooled in procurement and negotiation practices and bring relationship-based selling to profitable closures.

Owning Unlocking Yes gives readers access to sales negotiation success stories and is truthful in the hard lessons learned when things went wrong. Familiarize yourself with examples of 12 negotiation strategies sophisticated buyers use on professional sellers along with tips to navigate these bargaining strategies.

Unlocking Yes is current, relevant and adds value to any sales organization or individuals making large purchases because it is philosophically results based.


Editorial Reviews:

“In Unlocking Yes: Sales-Negotiation Lessons & Strategy, Patrick Tinney shares a rich combination of key negotiation principles and professional stories drawn from his own and his colleagues’ experience as veteran sales experts. As a negotiation professor, I was glad to have the chance to read it.

This is fairly unique in the way it focuses on the connections between the two critical business skills of sales and negotiation. I’ve met many who feel lacking in both subjects, and I’m glad to know that Unlocking Yes is written with them in mind. The book can reassure and help many of them.

The book succinctly reviews key principles of negotiation in an easy-to-read format – principles that are central to the field and that can make a big difference for anyone. It also offers a number of noteworthy ideas about the selling process, rightly emphasizing relationship building, listening, preparation, and even connecting that work with other business concepts such as SWOT analysis is accretive.

The book’s stories add color and subtleties to these principles. For example, to illustrate the importance of negotiation relationships, Tinney recounts a powerful story about going out of his way to do right by a client. The client so appreciated his consideration that years later when he faced layoffs at his firm, the client offered to help him find another job. Helping people produce more creative, satisfying agreements is a hugely valuable thing to do.

Unlocking Yes can help readers do just that, especially those in sales who are new or feel strongly challenged by this critical task.” Prof. Seth Freeman – Negotiation & Conflict Management, NYU Stern School of Business, Columbia University “Unlocking Yes” is a powerful, practical book, loaded with proven negotiating strategies you can use to get better deals every time.” Brian Tracy – Chairman and CEO of Brian Tracy International

How to Be Happy: Overcoming Mind Problems by CJJos

How to Be Happy: Overcoming Mind Problems by CJJos


About The Book:

Everyone will readily agree that overcoming a mental illness is absolutely essential to be happy in life. This book takes it a step further, emphasizing that even Mind Problems, the more common psychological predicaments, though well below the clinical bar, can affect a person’s thinking, behavior, and wellbeing in profoundly negative ways and bring down the structure of harmony and health.

The book is intended to educate the public on the importance of overcoming these problems by employing self-help strategies, psychotherapy, and, if needed, taking medications. For those concerned with overvaluing life’s mundane problems, thus trivializing the real medical disorders, there is plenty of thought-provoking evidence throughout the book, to calm their nerves.

Truework are you? Workplace observations and elements of NLP Coaching

Truework are you? Workplace observations and elements of NLP Coaching by ANNA KELLY, Review and Summary


About The Book:

We all face the alarm clock ringing loudly, urging us to rise and shine in all weathers.
For many, this is a struggle, for others, it’s “get up and go” time. What makes an everyday necessity so different for different people.

The answer lies in knowing the business you work for and more importantly the people you work with. People can either give you confidence or sap your confidence. My book looks beyond the door of the working environment, comprising of its ups and downs, logical and at times illogical.

At times, we can be left scratching our heads in dismay at the unprofessional attitude that can exist in the workplace. Many of these stories have been published individually and now compiled for the reader. I hope that it provides a little humour and a little annoyance mixed together to bring about a cocktail of sense.

More about her:


I have received the paperback of the book, good quality of paper and printing.

Race to Amazing 
is a Sales Leadership guide, Resource and training material in which the Author incorporated the storytelling (some chapters) and questioning (Collaborating) methods of teaching and writing.

She began with an introduction, how being a-know-it-all especially as a leader or business owner will hurt you and this book, Race to Amazing is about the growth if you’re open to learn and develop your strengths within.

The author is coming from an area and neighborhood with no exposure to the world of sales or business management. she explained how her father by listening to Jim Rohn’s motivational cassette tapes has made a significant impact on her life and who she is today.

Improving the relationship between managers and employees is the first thing that will pop up in your mind by reading the first chapter. no matter if you’re the owner or the manager of a small business or already running a company, generating $18 M in revenue, you need to identify those set-backs by asking questions, set priorities or reviewing your business culture in order to grow more revenue.

In the second chapter, the author has “Focused on Yourself” by offering some in-book and online tools (questionnaire) trying to teach how, to know ourselves, prompt our memory, emphasizing on goal setting and realizing how the core value influence the daily decision making.

Download a full reflections questionnaire offered by the author at

In this chapter, the author is asking the CEOs or LEADERs to be flexible (Awareness) to change as they could be one the main problems that hold the company back from success in Race to Amazing.

Some of the stories (Examples) in each chapter although are real and practical, but I think the failure to clarify how she has discovered the on-going problem in her client’s companies and not mentioning the time period of success after applying her strategies, is noticeable, although she has successfully covered the way she accomplished the result that the clients needed in a training way, by using some tools such as SWOT Analysis, collecting valid info by attending a meeting just with employees, realizing the gap between leadership and employees, etc.

In “LifeLine Example” after defining and walking the audience through the benefits, the author offers another questionnaire in order to draw the graph to identify the current habits and leadership style.

By reading Race to Amazing book, and facing phrases like Manager or Leader this question will pop up in mind that what is the difference between those two, or why it matters to identify our leadership style? In chapter four, The author in a unique way by simple examples and a comparison activity introduced two different leadership styles and broke down each, into New Generation and Old-School.

Next, The explanation of the impact of each style on the company, how to identify them, and the most important what their employees expecting from leaders is a great section for leaders to have a better communication with their team.

The Author in several examples is blaming CEOs or LEADERs of not having “Awareness” and being the main hurdle in Race to Amazing that caused the company stopped of growing more revenue or not succeeding. that said again, the author is asking leaders to take responsibilities of their failures, seek advice and communicate inside.

One of my favorite chapter in this book is chapter seven, where the author is asking Sales Leaders to take a big picture and break it down into easily implementable actions, that continues with go-to-market strategy and the teaching of CPR Model that she described it as a CPR breath life saving to any businesses. She also broke down this model into the different sections of Defenition, Comparison of each area, Where to Apply and take Action.

This book contains 14 chapters, written in a very easy language, realistic examples, useful In-Book, and online Assessment to identify your strengths and weaknesses, influence yourself and having a closer relationship with your employees, this is also a perfect source of Leadership Self-Study Workbook which I highly recommend to whoever wants to be a greater Leader in their professional life.

In the end, I’d like to thank the author Krista S. Moore for giving me the honor of reviewing her newly published book and sending a thank you card in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Did You Know: (Book Articles)


Data science has three core fields, namely artificial intelligence, machine learning, and statistics.

Artificial Intelligence is all about replicating human brain function in a machine. The primary functions that AI should perform are logical reasoning, self-correction, and learning. While it has a wide range of applications, it is also a highly complicated technology because to make machines smart, a lot of data and computing power is required.

Machine learning refers to a computer’s ability to learn and improve beyond the scope of its programming. Thus, it relies on creating algorithms that are capable of learning from the data they are given. They are also designed to garner insights and then make forecasts regarding data they haven’t previously analyzed.

There are three approaches to machine learning, namely supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning, plus some sub-fields (such as semi-supervised learning). Here, we will be talking only about supervised and unsupervised learning, since this is what is mainly used in business.

Let’s say you want to sort all your photographs based on content.

In supervised learning, you would provide the computer with labeled examples. So, you’d give it a picture of a dog and label it animal. Then you’d feed it a picture of a person and label it human. The machine will then sort all the remaining pictures.

In unsupervised learning, you’d just give the machine all the photos and let it understand the different characteristics and organize your photos.

In reinforcement learning, the machine learns based on errors and rewards. Thus, the machine analyzes its actions and their results.

Statistics is an essential tool in the arsenal of any data scientist because it helps to develop and study methods to collect, analyze, interpret, and present data. The numerous methodologies it uses enable data scientists to:

– Design experiments and interpret results to improve product decision-making
– Build signal-predicting models
– Transform data into insights
– Understand engagement, conversions, retention, leads and more
– Make intelligent estimations
– Use data to tell the story

Growth IQ Book By Tiffani Bova Review and Summary

Growth IQ: Get Smarter About the Choices that Will Make or Break Your Busines


About The Book:

Growth IQ Book By Tiffani Bova Review and Summary. Get Smarter About the Choices that Will Make or Break Your Busines. 


Trying to find the one right move that will improve your business’s performance can feel overwhelming. But, as you’ll discover in Growth IQ, there are just ten simple–but easily misunderstood–paths to growth, and every successful growth strategy can be boiled down to picking the right combination and sequence of these paths for your current context.

Tiffani Bova travels around the world helping companies solve their most vexing problem: how to keep growing in the face of stiff competition and a fast-changing business environment. Whether she’s presenting to a Fortune 500 board of directors or brainstorming over coffee with a startup founder, Bova cuts through the clutter and confusion that surround growth.

Now, she draws on her decades of experience and more than thirty fascinating, in-depth business stories to demonstrate the opportunities–and pitfalls–of each of the ten growth paths, how they work together, and how they apply to business today.


Editorial Reviews:

“A worthy successor to Michael Porter, Bova’s book is that rare gift: it opens doors for new ideas and new actions.
No glib answers here, simply hard-won wisdom that will provoke big changes for organizations large and small.”

SETH GODIN, Author Of Linchpin

“Too many companies foster cultures of burnout in the pursuit of short-term growth as an end in itself. Smart growth is sustainable growth and Tiffani Bova shows us how to maintain it by building a purpose-led culture and leveraging, instead of sacrificing, the dedication of your people.”

ARIANNA HUFFINGTON, Founder & CEO Of Thrive Global, Founder Of Huffington Post

“We all want our business to grow, but how can we make that happen? Fortunately, Tiffani Bova is here with answers. In this smartbook, she reveals ten growth paths — from creating an inspiring customer experience to disrupting business as usual. And she backs her findings with solid data and examples from thriving companies.
You’ve got a choice: Tread the old paths or follow Bova into the future.”

DANIEL H. PINK, Author Of When And Drive

“Tiffani Bova has a knack for rendering complex insights in clear, elegant prose. Growth IQ tackles the biggest question in business.”

MARTIN LINDSTROM, Author Of Buyology And Small Data

“Look, I LOVE this book. PERIOD. Growth IQ has a crisp, clean, and valuable superstructure. And it’s well written. Those things are great, but no the basis for my love affair. The love comes from Stories. Stories. Stories. Ten sound strategies, thirty compelling, memorable stories–from Starbucks and McDonald’s to Under Armour and Red Bull. If these stories don’t inspire you and add a ton to your stockpile of personal intellectual capital, I don’t know what will. Bravo Tiffani Bova!”

TOM PETERS, Author Of In Search Of Excellence

“Whether you’re planning to disrupt an industry or protect your company from competitors, GROWTH IQ shows how urgent it is to choose the right path. This choice can be overwhelming but Tiffani simplifies your options into ten proven paths and empowers you to embark upon the right one for you with confidence…and results. Our love affair with comfort zones can be our downfall;

Tiffani reminds us that almost all the good stuff happens when we venture off the well-trodden trail into uncharted–and therefore uncertain–territory. With her guidance, we discover that the uncertainty need not be so daunting–through examples, savvy, deeply-experienced analysis and synthesis, and valuable checklists, Tiffani will provide a bump to anyone’s GROWTH IQ.”

WHITNEY JOHNSON, Thinkers50 Management Thinker, Author Of Disrupt Yourself

“This book captures the essence of how to consistently grow an enterprise through relentless customer focus… Tiffani Bova is the quintessential storyteller… leading us through a framework that gives structure to our growth strategy. As a founder some of these things are innate… but this book is a valuable tool to inspire my leaders throughout each of our businesses.

It made me giggle too, I remember my CFO asking (as we hit our growth stride)… “what is it that worked?” The answer, of course, is everything.

About The Book:

MARKETING MADE EASY – Step by Step to a Marketing Plan for Your Business!

2019 Updated Edition

Welcome to The Marketing Book, 2019 edition! My name is Jason McDonald, and I’m excited to be your guide to the fun-filled and enriching task of business marketing.

This is a book about better thinking, better doing, and better measuring when it comes to marketing your business. This book will lead you step-by-step to a practical marketing plan for your business, both online and off.

This book teaches the think/ do/measure method of marketing. Each Chapter teaches a marketing task by, first, explaining how to think about the concept, second, giving you specific to-dos to actually go do it, and third, providing tips on how to measure what’s working (and what’s not) to do it better over time.

Throughout the book, we’ll use the example of Jason’s Cat Boarding Emporium (JCBE), a fictitious business in San Francisco, California, that boards cats for people who are leaving the city on vacation, and also offers cat grooming services as well as cat toys and paraphernalia for purchase online. As the pretend marketing manager of JCBE, we’ll brainstorm ways to better market our products and services to affluent, busy San Franciscans who want to get out of town and have a place to stash the cat.

With the framework of think/ do/measure in your head, and with the miracle of the Internet at your fingertips, you can dive deeper into any marketing task and become a better marketer. “Once you know the question,”

Here’s part of the introduction:

“Growing up I was always drawn to organization, simplicity, cleanliness, and order. I always sifted through my possessions and got rid of things I didn’t need or want anymore. As I got older, I recognized my own self-made, minimalistic tendencies in my design, my nature,  my mentality, and my style.

When this modern movement became more popular over recent years—especially after documentaries and other written works had been published around the idea of minimalism—I  realized I had already been living along the lines of a minimalist for much of my life.  When minimalism became more widespread, it didn’t seem like anything foreign to me. It certainly wasn’t something that seemed very far “out there.” It always seemed right. So for me, it came first nature. It wasn’t a question of whether or not it would benefit my lifestyle, because I was already experiencing the benefits.

What I learned from the very beginning after taking on the label of living a “minimalist” lifestyle, was that minimalism is not an overnight decision—it is a journey. It takes time to understand its purpose and to be able to apply its principles to one’s life. It takes a conscious effort to see it unfold and benefit your reality.

Minimalism not only improves your physical atmosphere, but it truly does impact your mental and emotional atmospheres as well. Becoming a minimalist can mentally and emotionally help you live a happier, more harmonious life. It can help you clarify your goals, vision, focus, and improve levels of gratitude. Minimalist principles should be applied to physical space, but must also be applied to the emotional, spiritual, and mental spaces.

As a public speaker, author, and coach, I have seen far too many people that suffer at the hand of stress, anxiety, fear, worry, depression, anger, bitterness, and hopelessness. Those effects have also weighed on my mind at some points and have taken over a large portion of my life at times. This is where I realized there was more to minimalism than just the physical aspect, there was a much larger emotional and mental side.

I needed to minimize those negative feelings and attitudes, settle my emotional state of my mind. After years of living and applying minimalism both physically and emotionally, and seeing its positive effects, I knew I had to share what I’ve learned with others.

I took a look at everything I was doing and recognized that minimalism has changed my life and it can do the same for those who aren’t already practicing it. I want to share with others that which has made a significant impact in every realm of my life. Whether someone is missing something in their lives, are in need of an extra boost, or need answers to their own deep-rooted questions, minimalism can be a path of change for them.

I have gathered my experiences, lessons, ideas, expertise, and combined them into a program that can help business owners and every-day human beings find greater fulfillment in their lives, and find that happiness, success, time, and purpose are top priorities on the lists of most important things to people.

Also, help others apply minimalism to the most vital and burdensome aspects of their lives. Being a consultant and change leader in the business world, I recognize an opening for me to help business owners and entrepreneurs “minimalize their businesses.”

I have given every ounce of energy and every piece of knowledge that I have in helping others minimalize their lives and businesses. I coach and support them as they apply minimalism and change principles that will help them find increased success and peace of mind.

So, here we are now. This book will stand as a guide for you (as the first milestone in my “Minimalize Your Life and Minimalize Your Business” program), to use and apply to your everyday life and business.

Though this book is simple in nature, my hope is that you will find nuggets of knowledge, sparks of insight, and perhaps find ways you can achieve greater happiness and fulfillment in your life that you haven’t quite thought of before.

This book will enable you to see improvement in your relationships and your families. You will see your business grow in ways you didn’t think was possible, based on simple ideas and principles. It’s nothing too detailed or abstract and I did that so that it can remain applicable to anyone at any point in their life.”

It was a very easy read which I loved. But it also really made me think. I thought organizing was important, well it is much more than that. Jake talks about cutting the crap out of every aspect of life.
Something I had never thought of. He talks about how when people come over you take all your crap and throw it in a closet and them when they leave you to put the crap right back and don’t get rid of it. I know I can’t be the only one guilty of that!”

A notebook size book which means easy to carry, and light. poor quality of printing (in some pages), especially at the end of the book, some pages are Off-Center. I liked the simple and minimalist cover design.

Minimalize to Maximize Your Happiness 
Book is written in an inspiring way of teaching a lifestyle which represents of simplicity and having less stress about unnecessities in life or losing what you have collected as a luxury.

The concept of minimalism is more about being intentional on what you bring into your life which allows you to get rid of relationships which are unhealthy, and get rid of stuff and clutter that you don’t need in your life.

The author began with the definition (in his opinion) of the title of the book, which helped to understand his point of view better, then explained the misconception of minimalism to help the audience to better understand its true intent and purpose before deciding whether or not it’s the right journey for them.

This book is the autobiography and the lifestyle of the author as he explained he grow up with it and he claims its the reason for his happiness in personal life and success in business.

This book contains 6 sections of Cut the Crap in Your Life, Business, Relationships, Material Crap, Home, and Workplace. in each section, the author is trying to teach, how to identify, what is holding you back from happiness and success, with making examples of our everyday lives, asking you to cut those craps to find the freedom.

In the second section, the author is explaining how he was able to help businesses to find those craps and helped them to identify important tasks and focus on priorities which bring more value to their business. the result was, it freed them up from the time, effort, and possible expenses of having too many tasks.

The third section of the book, Cut the Crap in Your Relationships, as author defines this crap “as toxic to our blood” he teaches you how to identify this type of crap (poison) in your personal life and asks you to get rid of it since you are wasting your time and energy on something that would never make you happy.

(I am so thankful because I cut this crap many years ago in my life when I identified those craps in my relationship or friendship with people who had nothing to do with my happiness but they were causing me trouble and holding me back from being a successful entrepreneur.)

The other interesting section of the book is Cut the Crap in Your Workplace, I am %100 agree with the author by saying, many of us spend more time at work then we do at home, with some metrics, he explained how complicated a workplace could be especially from poor relationships, ineffective processes, misunderstanding, lack of respect, jealousy, selfishness, and we must be willing to cut out the things that cause work-related stress, toxic cultures, and unsafe work environments.

There’s a question: Is your boss making your life miserable? if yes, The author answer is: ask for help. Your boss might even be impressed with that and improves your relationship, or you might need to recognize what is going on, or getting a job somewhere else to start experiencing the happiness you deserve. don’t put up with it if you can’t solve this issue, then cut the crap.

As you have read above the author is a coach and business owner, he stayed professional and never used his book as a commercial material to advertise his services to the audience, although he made examples of problem-solving of the minimalizing method to his clients, which I found useful but not enough. I really hope in the next edition (if any) the author makes more examples of different situations and problems which minimalizing way as a simple method, could be the resolution for the problem solvingcutting the crap, facing happiness and way to success.

In the end, I’d like to thank Jake B Melton the author of the book, for giving the honor of reviewing his first book to me by providing the paperback and PDF version of the book in exchange for honest feedback.

What is Minimalism, Then?

Minimalism is practiced by an individual human being. It is the responsibility of each person practicing minimalism to judge whether or not things, people, processes, attitudes, or actions are helping them achieve higher levels of happiness and success. If it helps you find freedom from guilt, negativity, stress, depression, and toxicity, then you are on your way to living a minimalistic lifestyle.

Yes, parts of minimalism are about getting rid of tangible things that occupy physical space, but it’s much deeper than just that. I will help empower you by identifying aspects of your life that you can cut out to find added harmony, joy, peace and happiness.


It’s human nature to seek after happiness.

We live our lives making everyday decisions that either add or subtract from our own level of happiness. As you read through this book, I want you to constantly consider this;
“What are you doing in your life to add to your happiness?” Likewise,
“What are you doing or not doing that may be taking away your potential happiness?”
Determine what crap you need to cut to eliminate whatever it is that isn’t supporting you in your journey to experiencing happiness.


I have always believed that a bad relationship is as toxic to our blood as injecting it with poison. Whether we think it or not, the emotional consequences our minds and bodies receive from dangerous, negative relationships can damage us just as badly as poison affects our physical bodies. Our mental and emotional well-being not only affects our relationship with depression, anger, resentment, guilt, and bitterness but like real poison, it affects our physical state as well.

…I did realize that many of those relationships I was trying so hard to maintain and correct were hugely affecting my mental, emotional, and physical health. I was adding fuel to my own fire. I was paying for a storage unit to store “crap” in my life. I was investing my time, hoping I’d eventually get some form of friendship in return, only to find out I wouldn’t.
