5.0 out of 5 stars How To Create a Highly Successful Business That Serves The Greatest Good, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Abraham Lincoln is famously quoted as saying "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." [And it's also important to note that Lincoln was prodigiously productive once he started swinging an axe, for starters.]

In business, positioning yourself powerfully and following through with highly productive action from that position is where the smart money is. Daniel Priestley's Key Person of Influence is a powerful blueprint for current and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to stand out ethically, attract far more business from clients who value them most highly, and make their highest contribution to society at large.

Do these principles work?

Yes, exceptionally well, as evidenced by the scores of successful entrepreneurs worldwide who follow this path. And what's more, the Key Person of Influence model is highly leveraged and far more efficient than the usual hamster wheel business-chasing approach that normal businesses get trapped in.

Bringing this closer to home, I've had the pleasure of knowing Daniel Priestley for many years now, as a client, business associate and friend, and he stands out consistently as one of the most accomplished, ethical and noteworthy entrepreneurs I've seen anywhere in the world. Not only is Dan exceptional at quickly bringing huge value to market, he's also an inspiring social entrepreneur who balances his considerable business success with sustained, highly effective social contribution.

I highly recommend Key Person of Influence as a masterclass in how to create a highly successful, ethical business that works for the good of all concerned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Powerful insights - and highly relevant for our times, 8 Jan 2009
In 'Wink', Roger Hamilton has distilled 29 very powerful concepts for business (and life) success. I have a wide range of business books, spanning management, sales and effectiveness, and I can recommend Roger's as one of the most profound and important on my shelf - 'Wink' has direct relevance in all of these areas.

Why? Because in the current market conditions, simply 'rowing the boat harder' will not suffice, and very often simply leads to performance plateaus. What Roger illustrates powerfully is what is required to develop and tap into your value and respond to the market most efficiently, building your wealth progressively. I can't think of a more timely message. And 'Wink' is one of those rare books that deserves a 2nd and 3rd read...
