My Favorite Podcasts and Blogs of Late

28 11 2013

 podcastI’m a fan of podcasts, and have been for many years. I also read a number of blogs and thought I’d take a moment to share my favorites. Here they are in no particular order:

  • Set Godin is an author, entrepreneur, marketer, and public speaker. This blog covers topics discussed in his books Tribes,  Purple Cow and Linchpin.  Sign up for the daily email.
  • This is a podcast I’ve been listening to for years by Jason Van Orden and Jeremy Frandsen that focuses on internet business marketing and creating online businesses that reflect your single motivating purpose
  • This is a great out-of-the-box radio show (and downloadable) based on the best-selling book Freakonomics by journalist Stephen Dubner and University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt.
  • This is a podcast that got me first started in thinking about modern internet marketing and web2.0 businesses. Unfortunately it has been abandoned but there are still some great podcasts worth reviewing

This list is only focused on  business. There are a number of history podcasts  and golf podcasts that I strongly recommend but we’ll leave that for another day.


First Draft of New Book – Tao Te Ching of Sales

7 12 2012

I’ve authored a new eBook  titled The Tao Te Ching of Sales, a draft collection of postings regarding universal principles for sales professionals.  The book is free and I would appreciate it if you  would  share this generously with your friends, colleagues and peers. As the book states, “The Master Seller listens before talking”. Since this eBook is a draft, the author would appreciate any questions, comments or advice from the readers.

Tao Te Ching of Sales Blog

4 12 2012

I’ve decided to start a new  blog regarding universal principles for successful Master Sales professionals. It is written in the context of the ancient Chinese teacher of Lao Tze. Master sellers understand that sales cannot be forced and that in focusing on the needs of the buyer, sales close effortlessly.  It is called the Tao Te Ching of Sales and can be found at

The Master Seller listens before talking
And sells without effort
Sharing without preaching
Explaining without judging
Demonstrating without closing
Never assuming the sale, the Master never loses one.
