Summary

Witchcraft in Europe in Middle Ages and Early Modern Period was believed to be a combination of sorcery and heresy. While sorcery attempts to produce negative supernatural effects through formulas and rituals, heresy is the Christian contribution to witchcraft in which an individual makes a pact with the Devil. In addition, heresy denies witches the recognition of important Christian values such as baptism, salvation, Christ and sacraments. In Early Modern European tradition, witches were stereotypically, though not exclusively, women. European pagan belief in witchcraft was associated with the goddess Diana and dismissed as "diabolical fantasies" by medieval Christian authors. Witch-hunts first appeared in large numbers during the 14th and 15th centuries. It was commonly believed that individuals with power and prestige were involved in acts of witchcraft and even cannibalism.

    A twenty-first–century sales philosophy that “gets straight to the point about what works, and what doesn’t work in today’s marketplace” (Kevin Kruse, New York Times-bestselling author of 15 SecretsSuccessful People Know About Time Management, Founder and CEO of LeadX). 
     
    Being successful at sales has nothing to do with “selling.” The best salespeople are the ones who are always curious—not always closing. Succeed Without Selling contains everything a small business owner or sales professional needs to know about what it takes to be successful. From prospecting to discovery to referrals and strategic alliances, it’s all covered. There are even chapters for sales managers, direct sellers, and service providers. 
     
    Succeed Without Selling also includes resources like sample scripts and proposal templates. Anyone who wants to grow their business will find actionable, easy-to-follow information to help them embrace the value of being more interested in others than in making the sale. Succeed Without Selling changes the way readers look at the sales process forever—and stops them from engaging in behaviors that just don’t work.
