Travel, Projects, Sales & More: Top Tweets for Aug 23-25

I spend a lot of time on Twitter and this is my way of trying to capture what some of the best things I’ve tweeted recently.

In this round of Top Tweets I found some cool links on traveling around the world, talk about sales strategies, explore “awesome” web apps, affirm the power of mini-projects, and find that 4.2M isn’t eff-you money.

My First Game Changing Deal…..

Read a great post on how a salesman turned around a client who HATED his company into the deal that changed his life. (He wrote 2 handwritten notes a week for 3 months, then worked 24 hrs straight to deliver when she gave him a job). But you got to read it for yourself.

Here is what he learned.

  • Stay commited.
  • Focus on Changing the Game.
  • Be Sincere.
  • Be Different.
  • Risk being laughed at.
  • Risk FAILURE every day.
  • Write handwritten notes.
  • And, most of all positive karma — or leave what you are doing.
  • Develop Entreprenurial Improvisation.
