Summary

"Radical thinkers might have a point" - Financial Times
 The Greatest Crash argues that the financial system which evolved from the early Italian bankers has now reached a roadblock. The weight of debt already created prevents further economic expansion, while paying down the debt shrinks economies. To escape this trap, evolution is needed. But bureaucratic design, delegated government, and group think, all combine to prevent evolution.

    Mastering the Art of Selling
    
    Take your selling to a new level with this straight forward 'tell it as it is' guide that will have you firing on all cylinders.
    
    To achieve success in sales or to make the big bucks as a salesperson, you need to first have the right mindset and the right attitude.
    
    The truth about selling and sales is it is often thought of as the highest paid hard work or the lowest paid easy work.
    
    Developing your sales techniques, your cold calling scripts, your closing and objection handling processes all play a massive part in the development of a Sales Superstar and if you wish to be the best then you need to acquire the skills needed to give yourself the edge and confidence to not take ‘No’ as an answer from your prospects.
    
    Success as a Salesperson also depends on the individual and what drives and motivates them. The fantastic thing about sales and selling is that the essential elements of what it takes to be successful at selling lie within us all, even if we have never sold anything before.
    
    Successful salespeople aren't created by studying for Bachelor Degrees, nor PhD's. They aren't created by theory, or personality types. What makes a successful salesperson is usually a very strong drive towards a number of goals, self motivation, determination and a strong will to win.
    
    Can these personal traits and drivers be learned? 
    Of course they can. But, you know the old story, you can always lead a horse to water but you can't ... (you know this one). Provided someone possesses that inbuilt burning desire for something better in life, then yes, these traits can be taught and learned.
    
    For most people entering sales for the first time, or making the decision that they want to take their sales career to new heights, these goal oriented, financially driven traits need to be present before any level of success will be attained.
    
    Mastering the Art of Selling is a book created to inspire both the novice sales person, or to re-motivate and reinvigorate the more experienced sales person looking to find that new spark in their career.
    
    Filled with lots of guidance, sales success tips and selling advice, motivational tips, tricks and help to take your sales career to a new level. This book will leapfrog your sales successes helping you to achieve the sales goals and capabilities you've always known were within you but you just didn't how to unlock them and release them.

    Leveraging New Technology and Online Platforms to Reach Your True Fans, Make Money Online, and Earn Extra Income as a Musician 
    How should I sell my music? Where can I distribute my recordings? How else can I make money as a musician? How can I find my true fans? Should I teach online? Should I write books? What platforms and websites in web 3.0 should a musician know about?  
    Do you want to know…How you can access your music, your musical experiences, and your knowledge of musical styles, gear, musicianship, and more to create additional revenue streams?What approach is useful when accessing new technologies, media, and outlets for your music?How to create content that develops passive income strategies for musicians and other creatives?What secret weapons musicians already possess that makes the web the perfect place to earn money?What ways you can expand and develop your online presence that can both simplify and also maximize your offline activities as a musician and creative person? What music fans can teach us about being better musicians? 
    On some level, perhaps we all want to just create for a living. Even if you’re not a composer or songwriter/lyricist who writes original music, you might just want to create superb performances and amazing recordings. Or you might simply want a fair and comfortable wage for your work and your playing — and for all the years of preparation and practice, and for your experience.  
    Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible. Musicians — of all backgrounds — too often struggle to survive… 
    Maybe it’s your region? Where you live there may not seem to be enough performance opportunities and music teaching gigs for your instrument, your particular style, your musical genre, for the given amount of musicians in that area.  
    So what can you do?  
    Should you just move to New York? Move to Los Angeles? Maybe Nashville, Chicago, Seattle, London, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Shanghai, or Buenos Aires? Perhaps. And it sounds like fun… But maybe you already live in one of those great places, and you still struggle to create a full, sustainable musical life. 
    Musicians in the Global Marketplace 
    Years ago, I attended a workshop given by the German avant-garde vibraphonist and composer Karl Berger where he said he followed this simple model of musician survival: with nearly 7 billion people in the world, he would be happy to find ways to get 5,000 people to give him $10 each year! 
    That's it -- simple math.  
    Sell them a recording, a concert ticket, a workshop, a book, anything… 
    Of course, once you can do this consistently and make that living wage of $50K, you're totally free to create your music and live your musical life any way that you choose. But how do you find those 5,000 people? How do you connect with them? How can you bring in diversified revenue streams that don’t require your fans, followers, listeners, and ‘clients’ to become over-saturated with relentless sales of your latest project?

    Anyone who has ever wanted to have their own online business and make big bucks is going to love Etsy. Etsy is perhaps the most perfect online platform to sell handmade items, vintage items (20 years or older) and craft items. This makes it ideal for those who hoard craft supplies and those who have a lot of vintage items or great handmade items to sell! 
    It is not overly complicated to set up an online Etsy shop and it is easy to get going. If a person has an Internet connection then all they need are the following: a few great detailed pictures of the items that are for sale, a paypal account (in order to accept payments via paypal this account is required), this book, and a determination to be successful. 
    Why should someone choose Etsy as their sales platform? There are a variety of reasons including the fact that the person does not have to actually own a website and maintain it on their own website. Etsy is a website within a site that allows users to create their own shops and sell directly from Etsy without the costly overhead of running one’s own website. 
    Many great businesses have started on Etsy and gone on to make their shop owners a small fortune. It takes a determination and will power but it can be done - and this book will teach you how! Good Luck!
