PowerTips Book Recommendations: February 2019

Every week we ask our PowerTips Unscripted guests to name their favorite business book, and the choices can be surprising — either because they’re new to us or because they’re old favorites that are worth reading again. 

Mike Medford Sr., Medford Design Build

The Power of Positive Thinking, by Norman Vincent Peale
Mike’s pick is one of those classics, and it’s a book that comes up time and time again as a recommendation in the podcast.

Josh Kelly, RevuKangaroo.com and Parker & Sons Inc.

Way of the Wolf: Straight Line Selling — Master the Art of Persuasion, Influence and Success, by Jordan Belfort
Josh recommends this book to boost your sales game — or for those who are selling for you. It’s an especially deep dive into how to persuade others, negotiate, and become a master salesperson.

Steve Barkhouse, Amsted Design-Build

Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business, by Gino Wickman
This book looks at how to strengthen six key components of your business. Steve says it’s a great guide he and his business partner used to implement Amsted’s new leadership team.

Chris Katkish, InSite Builders and Remodeling

Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, by David Allen
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by everything you have to do, you also have to read this book. Chris says it taught him to be organized, by giving him a system for dealing with everything re;ated to his business.

Judith Miller, facilitator for Remodelers Advantage

Construction Contractor Survival Guide, by Thomas C. Schleifer
The lessons here are applicable to all remodeling companies, says Judith. The author identifies the 10 reasons contractors fail, and how to avoid the pitfalls.

Tanya Bamford, managing director, R/A Marketing Inc.

The Sales Bible, New Edition: The Ultimate Sales Resource, by Jeffrey Gitomer
While this book if filled with great sales tips and techniques, Tanya loves it for the remodeling industry because of its emphasis on outstanding customer service as a sales tool.
