What is true feminine beauty? As the artist I fancy myself to be, I feel that I know it when I see it. Many women are blessed with natural beauty which has two components as far as I’m concerned: 1.) The face. 2.) The body. In the face, some women have striking looks but if they don’t have beautiful souls it reverberates there. Your resting expression indicates the type of person you are. Over time, this expression becomes your permanent face which is why I can tell who looks happy in a relaxed way versus the girls with anger, sadness or a beef with the world written on their faces. They have scowls on them. Look at yourself in the mirror with no expression on your face. You can see how other people see you. See more at tonykel.com

Does this sound familiar? 'If I could get in front of the prospect, the rest of the selling process becomes easier. It's just getting in front of them that's the challenge'. The fact is most cold-calling efforts are doomed from the start. Salespeople lose sales not due to a lack of effort but because they lack a prospecting system they are comfortable with, and can trust to generate greater, consistent results. If you are feeling the same way you have been for the last several years (including the 'calling to check in, touch base or follow-up' approach) or haven't been prospecting at all, you're simply making it easier for your competition to take away the new business you are working so hard to earn. So, if you love to sell but hate (or don't like) to prospect, this book is your opportunity to maximize your cold calling potetnial and boost your income by learning how to get in front of the right prospects in less time and create greater selling opportunities without the fear, pressure or anxiety associated with cold calling.
