“There are countless books and training resources out there meant to help people improve their selling skills. But the majority tend to focus on theoretical concepts that are often difficult to put into practice. Vince Burruano has created an actual playbook for aspiring sales professionals that does the exact opposite. This book is an absolute gift filled with tactical, actionable, and impactful guidance that can be implemented immediately. I would call it a must-have, ‘how-to’ guide filled with tangible insights, based on actual experiences. Effective selling is so much more than what happens during customer meetings. Vince knows this better than anyone. He shares what it takes to help move the needle for anyone who has made the decision to embark on a journey toward achieving excellence in one of the greatest professions in the world…SALES!”
