20 Ways to CLOSE


Here’s a new audio that is being mixed (in post-production). It will be released and sold later this summer as a packaged CD (yet to be named) around ‘Closing the Ask.’ Blog readers stream the audio for free below.

This is something people have been asking for. I’ve long refused… pushing the importance of being AUTHENTIC (vs. a parrot). Now coaching for many years I’ve come to realize some people will be parrots and others will draw up their own conclusions, their own closes (I hope you share them). My favorite is the Goonies Close!

Here’s an outline of the closes – audio is 70 minutes.
