  • Your use of gentle cartoons and your pay-it-forward idea are going to catch on, I think. I agree with what your reviewer Christina Ksoll has written - good advice for people starting out in the world. And not only them. For people without impressive accomplishments, one aspect that might be expanded in the book is the kind of advice you gave your friend Mike - the outdoorsman who switched into a business (realty) in which he was *not* an ace. I take your point about 'narrowing' - down to being a great knot-tying specialist, if that's your area of expertise. In line with the chapter on helping when it's hard, you could discuss these trickier cases a bit more. Really like your headings and title here and in Smart Customers, Stupid Companies. Best wishes.

  • Very nice practicing what you preach self-promotion work on slides 19-20. Makes it a good deal! BTW, I looked up the etymology of 'to sell' and the origins mean 'to serve' as in helping someone find what they really need.

How to Self-Promote without Being a Jerk How to Self-Promote without Being a Jerk Presentation Transcript

  • Some people are self-obsessed…
  • Self-obsession is a lousy way to get positive attention.
  • Do you like to listen to others brag incessantly?
  • No one else does either.
  • Stop being that guy.
  • It is okay to aim high, but aim high on behalf of other people, too.
  • Earn trust Promote others Introduce others Help others Build skills Prove yourse
  • But focus less on style and more on substance.
  • Sell less, and serve more.
  • Sorry Donald Trump (who used to be smart)… not all attention is good attention.
  • Let others say good things about you.
  • Lower the intensity level.
  • What? You say that’s not enough guidance?
  • Sell, Don’t Serve Too often, selling means distorting the truth. In order to close a deal, you have to shift the details in your favor: YES! Sugar water is fun! It will make you happy! You will be loved! Drink sugar water! Here’s a far better strategy: serve the best interests of people you want to impress. Doing this will require some common sense. It will require the courage to stand up to takers, who are very good at deluding themselves that what is best for them is also best for others… Adapted from…
  • Prove it Don’t claim to be visionary. Don’t call yourself a thought leader. These are ridiculous assertions that are nearly impossible to validate. Only make claims you can prove. You can claim that you doubled sales, but the claim will have much greater impact if your CEO is willing to be quoted saying that you doubled sales. The more evidence you can cite, the better. Adapted from…
  • $9.99 on Amazon, but you can download a PDF of the book for free, on one condition…
  • If you find the book valuable, please buy a copy on Amazon and give it as a gift to someone else. In this way, we are both honoring the spirit of the book. I am giving you a gift, and you are giving a gift to someone else.

  • "An entertaining, practical guide to navigating one of the most important challenges of our time. Thanks to Bruce Kasanoff‟s engaging writing and sage advice, this is an enjoyable book that‟s full of new ideas to put into action immediately." -- Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take “The first thing I want to say about this book, is that every person graduating college should get a copy of this, along with a diploma. This is not just a guide about self-promotion, it is a lot more. It is a book about how to be successful, with the overarching theme, that if you are a successful human being, you will be a success in business because those same traits carry over. Then it gives the proper advice about how to „self-promote.‟” -- Christina Ksoll, review on Amazon BUY IT HERE
