It is not unusual for this to happen, and there are ways to avoid it.

  8. Preparation for Your Presentations By Jim Rohn
    (Excerpted From the Jim Rohn Millennium Weekend Event)Persistence in your presentations, this is one secret to success. After my first presentation, I got up and did it again. Even though I was scared to death, I did it again. And that second one wasn't too good, but guess what. I did it again, and I did it again. And I worked up my courage, and I did it again. I committed to it, and I did it again. And finally, it got to be a little bit easier. I got a little more acquainted with the art of p…

  10. The Relationship between Information Sender and Receiver: The Art of Communication By Andrew E. Schwartz
    For communication to take place, a message must be transmitted by a communicator and correctly received by a listener. If the message is not understood, there is no communication. There is only noise. Between the transmission and reception of a message, much can go wrong. Communication, by definition, involves at least two individuals, the sender and the receiver. There are certain filters or barriers which determine whether or not the message is actually transmitted or received.There may be b…

  12. How to Teach: Lecture vs. Discussion By Andrew E. Schwartz
    WHEN ONLY A LECTURE WILL DO: Under certain circumstances, of course, the lecture is the only workable format. For instance, when it is necessary to reach a large audience in a short time frame, or when the attendees have no knowledge of the subject whatsoever, there is really no choice. But whenever possible, alternative methods should be investigated. If you choose to rely solely on lectures, be aware that you do so for your own convenience and comfort, rather than for the effectiveness of th…

Their "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books continue to sell in the millions of copies because they tap into our primal need …


  14. Quick and Easy Rehearsal Tips By Andrew E. Schwartz
    Never rehearse at the last minute. This creates undue tension and nervousness and does not allow sufficient time for correcting mistakes and polishing delivery. Ideally, the first full auditory rehearsal should take place at least a week before the presentation date and be conducted in undisturbed surroundings.

  20. A Carousel Of Color By Ty Boyd

Humans have a remarkable sound system, but most people don't use 10 percent of their vocal ability. Vocal color is a guaranteed method of gaining - and holding - the attention of your audience…

  22. Too Many Choices - Don't Confuse Your Customers By Cathy Stucker
    Conventional wisdom is that the more choices customers have, the more likely they will buy. That may be true when customers have very specific wants or needs, and they know what those wants or needs are. However, often having lots of choices just confuses customers and they don't buy anything.One company tested this idea this way: They put 26 flavors of jams and preserves on a table. Customers could taste any or all of them, and if they made a purchase they got $1 off. People circled and chatt…


  23. Don’t Give Presentations Or Speeches - Give Leadership Talks Instead By Brent Filson
    The CEO of a worldwide business asked me to help him develop a talk he planned to give to several hundred of his top executives. He said, 'I feel as if I’m Daniel going into the lion's den.'Indeed, it was the business equivalent of a lion's den that he was entering. Hired from a competing firm, he was a stranger to the company, a company hobbled by declining market share and bad morale caused by the arbitrary actions of the previous CEO, an isolated dictator.'This is the first time most of the…


  24. Writing The Query Letter By Diane Thomas
    The query letter is simply a business letter that serves a dual purpose.

The query letter is the first "picture" an agent will have of you and your work; and is perhaps your strongest selling tool.Why the query letter? Basically it serves to save time. Agents and publishers simply do not have the time to read unsolicited manuscripts, and it is certain…

    “Jennifer, I am expecting you to come back with the order. Really, we need this sale to hit our numbers for the quota. Remember everything that we talked about.” Does this sound familiar? We’ve all been there, the requirement to give presentations or present proposals has been an essential part of the selling process for a long time.
