Sadly Chet Holmes died in August 2012 but in this book, he has left behind a fine legacy for people to understand how he helped so many big and small businesses around the world.

The auithor believes people over-complicate what is needed for business success. Instead you just need to focus on 12 key strategies and implement them with pigheaded discipline and determination.

The Key Business Growth Strategies Covered In The Book

1 - Really effective time management
2 - Instituting higher standards and regular training
3 - Effective meetings

4 - Becoming a brilliant strategist by taking a strategic approach by educating your prospective customers so that you set the buying criteria. Why play the game to someone else's rules if you can change the rule book by having a better understanding of the opportunities and threats that your customers face. I like the idea of the stadium pitch. What would you say if you had the initial attention of all the possible buyers of your product or service but they could walk away at any time? It's a powerful question on its own but Chet also introduces us to a pyramid of potential customers - some are actively looking to buy, some are thinking about buying but not doing anything about it yet, some are not thinking about it, some don't think they are interested and the last category know in their own minds that they are not interested. It could mean 90% of the audience are ready to walk out as soon as you say "Hi my name is Joe and I sell...". Instead he explains an approach to keep those who didn't know they were interested to stay and listen.

5 - Hiring superstars - There is some fantastic advice on hiring superstar sales people in this chapter that will knock your socks off.

Chet Holmes is a legend, I studied under Chet with Jay Abraham in early 2000's in LA and let me tell you something, $15,000 is what they charged per company to attend their PEQ course. Around 80% of what they taught in PEQ is included in this book - if you want to turn your sales around but this book.

This is a great book. I'm an avid reader of business books, but I have never read a book on increasing sales that packs a greater punch than this one. Chet Holmes has included more useable information in each chapter than many authors put in their whole book, that is not to say that everything Chet teaches is new, not all of it is, but the difference between doing something and doing something well is in the detail and that detail is here, set out in a logical easy to follow methodology that has brought astounding results all over the world. I particularly liked his views on pigheaded discipline and determination, it's obvious of course, but it's nevertheless essential and underpins all the key strategies this book will teach you. I can't wait to get started on building my own Ultimate Sales Machine.

Chet is a Genius - no questions asked. The book covers everything you need to know to turn your company into a sales machine. From the opening time-management section through to the dream clients - everything is clearly explained with examples. In one of these type of books you hope to get at least 1 "Eureka" moment - I had so many "Eureka" moments reading this book it was crazy and I have been in business quite a long time. This is my new Bible - and though i am loathed to share it or encourage people to read it so that I can keep Chet all to myself, it seems only fair to review his book and say how amazing it is!

I should mention I bought this book thinking it would be about building a successful sales team - which it is - but that is only a small part of it - there is also so much more. If you only buy one book on how to run a successful business - buy this one.

The info in Ultimate Sales Machine is gold. Highly recommended. I bought the book and the CD for the car. Can listen to the audio first and then skim read to make notes/highlight the relevant ares for quick reference in the book.

Chet died recently. I came across him via Tony Robbins' Business Mastery seminar. He used to run Tony's sales team of over 50 reps. This book is extraordinary. Some approaches he describes are unique. His key phrase 'pig headed discipline' is a part of my life now. He actually wanted to call this book 'Pig headed executive always wins'. He will teach you how to get dream customer and how to work on different parts of your business. It's a germ. Must have if you are in business or sales.

I attended a Chet Holmes seminar and just by glancing through the contents of the book I can tell that this is something great. In summary, my chance meeting with Chet Holmes and exposure to his "Ultimate Sales Machine" transformed my outlook and my business completely. He did a fantastic job for thousands of people and businesses and his talent will truly be missed.
