Selling from Your Comfort Zone: The Power of Alignment Marketing by Stacey Hall.


About Book:

You don’t have to betray yourself or your values to close stellar sales. This book introduces a simple formula for a personalized approach to building connections through alignment and problem-solving.

So many salespeople believe that they have to push themselves out of their comfort zones and compromise their values to sell products. But, as Stacey Hall shows, the comfort zone can actually be a power zone that leads to sales, satisfaction, and success.

Selling from Your Comfort Zone shifts away from “pushy” and “spammy” sales tactics and instead shows how you can bring meaning to your role as a salesperson. Hall teaches how to remain in alignment with your calling, with yourself, with what you are selling, with your prospects, and with what you are saying to your prospects. By being aligned with your core values and personality traits, you will have more confidence, energy, and courage to achieve your goals, which greatly increases the chances of success.

Studies reveal that while men generally rely on improving and driving outcomes to close sales, women tend to emphasize building connections, shaping solutions, and collaborating. Hall’s Alignment Marketing formula combines both skillsets in an easy-to-follow process for gently expanding your comfort zone to the edge of its safe boundaries. By adopting this approach, you can stay flexible and resilient in the face of problems and objections that all salespeople encounter along the way.

My Take: Are you a working professional in the sales field? Or are you a business owner and selling is everything you do?


Selling from Your Comfort Zone: The Power of Alignment Marketing is the first book I read written by Stacey Hall and I am too stunned to express my views.

Author Stacey Hall is an expert on sales and has given us a brief detail on all the topics related to Sales, the book contains strategies, solutions, common difficulties, how to deal with, and knowing your audience. It’s a helping guide that will educate you and will brush up your skills even more.

The highlight of the book is, it will answer all your questions that arrive while reading the book, which I found interesting and essential for everyone to know the logic and tactics behind it.

It’s an export guide that will help you achieve your goals and milestones, easily and productively. When I started reading the book, what really impressed me was one simple formula that not just amazed me but changed my whole perspective of reading this book.

Alignment + belief x consistency = sales, satisfaction, and success.

A life-changing formula that will help you achieve your goals in a positive and confident manner.

Author Stacey Hall is an expert on sales and her work in this book is valuable and essential for every working individual.

Even Now the word Sales has an effect on people who do not choose the sales field as it has many challenges. But once you start reading this, I guarantee it will help you understand the logic more simply and you will find everything a bit smoother.

Overall it is extremely helpful and highly recommended. Click here and read now Selling from Your Comfort Zone: The Power of Alignment Marketing written by Stacey Hall.

SAMUDRAN: The Extraordinary Journey of an Ordinary Man by A R. Vikram.

The Blurb:

Making moral choices is hard enough even with religion or family as a navigating guide. But what if you had neither?

Sammy
Samudran, aka Sammy, is a twenty-three-year-old photographer. He is also an abused orphan, and an atheist to boot. A highly unorthodox and independent thinker, he accepts a last-minute assignment to work at a tiny remote island for a small scientific team planning to study the island's unique flora with amazing dietary and medicinal properties. Sure, there are several risks that come with the project, but what does he care? After all, he has completely sworn off such mundane things as family and marriage and life purpose, and has no ties binding him to anything. That is, until he meets.....

Meila
Seventeen years old. Or maybe eighteen. Beautiful, sweet, and naïve. Both burdened and blessed with her own unique past, she also happens to be the daughter of one of the tribal chiefs. In spite of his strong views against love and marriage, Sammy falls madly in love with her, but knows that there are several obstacles to overcome. But then he is met with the biggest challenge of all, in the form of.....

A Betrayal
Sammy and his teammates discover a heinous plot by one of their own, who is in cahoots with a powerful and greedy corporation to sell out the island and its trusting tribes. But exposing the evildoer's plot turns out to be not as easy as they hope. And when their best-laid plans go awry, Sammy is forced to go into hiding on the island.

Faced with an extremely tight time constraint, it is now up to Sammy to try and save the island and its tribes. Will the young maverick prove himself up to the task? Will the friendships and relationships he has forged along the way help him in this highly risky endeavor? Will he be able to win Meila and save her people before time runs out?

Find out in this heartwarming tale about humanity, bravery, friendship, brotherhood, and love.

My Take: Samudran The Extraordinary Journey of an Ordinary Man is a debut novel written by the author A R. Vikram and it's a story that will not only touch your heart but will also leave an unforgettable impression. 

The book starts with a thrilling prologue which set the mood for the rest of the book perfectly. As the story started, it felt like the author has done a great deal of research while writing this book, as the details were finely described. The characters, places, surroundings, drama, situations, love, friendship, betrayal, suspense, and every emotion was defined as a perfectionist. 

The book has an easy flow with lucid language, trapping our minds in the book. The book is not a short/quick read, I read it in intervals and trust me when I say this, even when I was not reading, I was actually thinking about the story, what will happen next and the thing that already happened. 

Truly addictive and can't wait to read more future books written by the author A R. Vikram.

Overall a unique book with a sensational storyline. So click here and read now and be amazed by the book SAMUDRAN: The Extraordinary Journey of an Ordinary Man written by A R. Vikram.
