There is a storyteller in you.
She doesn't care how old you are. She doesn't care if you're retired, semi-retired, nearing retirement or just over it. She doesn't care if you used to be a repairman, or an accountant, or a rodeo clown. She doesn't care how sure you are that it's too late to start something new.
There is a storyteller in you. And it's time you started listening.
My name is Ninie Hammon and I'm 72 years old. (If you say 72 years young, I will reach out from this page and punch you in the face.)
I started writing my first book when I was 58. Too late? Nonsense. In fact, it was the perfect time to start writing.
In this short little book, I'll do my best to show you that ...  - Retirement is the perfect time to start writing.  - Expendable time is the most valuable time there is.  - Technology sucks, but it also doesn't matter.  - Readers matter even more than you think.  - Community is the secret sauce on everything.  - Doing the thing is the most important thing.
And so much more. Or maybe just those things. But also stories! And tangents. So many tangents. And references only you will get.
There's even something in here for *gasp* people that aren't 72 yet. Or 52. Or even 32.
It's time to stop thinking about who you were before and consider who you can be right now. It's time to become a storyteller.

    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.
