I came across this book when I was on maternity leave with my first child, wondering if the workplace would still need me when I get back or if it was worth it to leave my bundle of joy for the hustle of work. It’s been 4 years since then and I am still growing strong in the workplace which may not have happened if I hadn’t read this book.

A lot of things fight for our emotional space, attention in our minds and thoughts. While some thoughts are welcome, others are draining. Just the thought of that person, undone task, disorganised desk, incomplete project or even just a promise not kept could literarily take a huge piece of our emotions and occupying lots of space in our minds making us stressed, unhappy or even guilty.
It’s the end of another lovely month (February)! It’s been power packed and full! but I’m glad it’s one more down (decided not to put the number of months to go…). Thanks to my blog followers who take time out of their busy schedules to read my posts and share. You guys keep me going. Thanks.

We are all salesmen whether our jobs explicitly says it or not, we are always selling or trying to sell something, we sell ourselves using our C.Vs to employers, we are selling the gospel to others, we always selling. Duct tape selling discusses the new rules to selling in the 21st century – the information age where brochures are almost extinct and sales people have to knock harder and on more doors to get even an audience much less close a sale – Tosan A.
