So it’s time to dispense with any clichéd notions of sales being synonymous with a fast-talking huckster in a plaid sports coat. Genuine, useful, profitable sales is about honoring yourself, your profession, and your prospect. The Reluctant Rainmaker shows you how to market your services, find potential clients, and build your book. It starts with developing a cohesive business development plan, creating a successful, satisfying, and sustainable practice, and ends with you looking in the mirror and still liking what you see.  For more information, or to receive a free, sample chapter of the book, click here.
