On 1st August 2019, I’m leaving the world of employment to set up my own freelance sales agency. Combining over thirty years of sales experience with a passion for writing, I also have ambitions to become a copywriter. As part of the masterplan, I’m currently in the middle of a Copywriting Diploma.
I owe a debt of gratitude to Mark Manson, Geoff Burch, Roger Horberry & Gyles Lingwood, Tom Albrighton, William Zinsser, Strunk & White, Dan Ariely, Mish Slade, Dave Trott and Glenn Fisher (among others) for their inspiration and insights over the past few months. They have been great companions and have joined me during lunch breaks; on planes, trains & automobile journeys; in the garden; on the beach; at the dinner table and even in bed.
Between them, this talented bunch have written some exceptional books (pictured), several of which I am now reading for the umpteenth time. (Apparently, all highly successful, wealthy, intelligent and handsome people read a lot. I know this is true as I’m the exception that proves the rule).
So, here’s a question for you: if you could recommend just one relevant book, website, blog etc, to inspire, enlighten or educate me, what would it be?
