You Lost Him at Hello

Wow..what a great book. Do I normally say that? Well anyway, a friend lent me this book the other day and it hasn't disappointed. Its a bit of a quick and fun read..not too heavy on the brain power, but very enjoyable. I can't tell you how many times I have laughed out loud or nodded my head in agreement. As you can tell by the title, this book is all about mistakes women make when dating mean. It is not feminist, nor negative. It is uplifting and insightful. The author applies her sales techniques to everyday life and dating. Some of her advice is pretty basic and not that revolutionary. However, having a sales background myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the numerous stories of how she and her friends have ruined their chances with love by making the same mistakes rookie sales reps make:

1. Don't use all your bullets at once/the beginning - Most successful sales people have product features/deals that close the don't want to give all your assets away at once..if you know what I mean.

2. Know and love your product - Men and customers alike can sense a lack of confidence or knowledge from a mile make sure you know yourself and love yourself..otherwise how can he?

3. Your best five - Five what? Five OUTFITS! This tip is awesome...wear the same 5 killer outfits in rotation when you go out. That way you can save time, know that you look good and have the confidence and comfort to pull it all off. What are the chances anyone will notice you are repeating outfits? Ok..maybe your girlfriends...until they copy your genius idea.

Just a taste...pick up the book to find out more..its great for a plane ride..until you laugh out loud :)
