The story of the most famous all-brother, semi-pro baseball team of all time began when Mary and Martin Stanczak were forced to flee their Polish homeland for America. They settled in Illinois where, like many immigrant families, they raised a large family-eleven children, ten boys and one girl. Those ten boys became a regional baseball powerhouse. This book recounts the history of the development of the Stanczak All-Brothers baseball team and details some of their more significant achievements, including their victory in the All-Brothers World Championship of 1929.
The book also includes some personal reminisces of the author from his own baseball-playing days and provides some highlights about the impact of the two World Wars on the game of baseball in the United States. It is a fascinating glimpse into three very American topics: the role of family, the immigrant experience, and how baseball brought Americans together.
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.
