I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it.

Latest episode posted! “Generals in the Making” is a gem of a leadership book and should be required reading for any early or mid-level professional. The book is an engrossing examination of how four army generals of World War II, each a major player in their own right, navigated the uncertain and tumultuous pre-war years in their careers. sphttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/black-market-leadership/id1523238553?i=1000533915181

Evangelicals did sell their soul to the false prophet, didn’t they? From Cohen’s book: Trump held a meeting at Trump Tower with prominent evangelical leaders, where they laid their hands on him in prayer. Afterward, Trump said: “Can you believe that bulls--t? Can you believe people believe that bulls--t?”. The cosmic joke was that Trump convinced a vast swathe of working-class white folks in the Midwest that he cared about their well-being, Cohen writes

Alito’s skewering of Roe and the endorsement of at least four other justices for that unsparing critique is also a measure of the court’s rightward turn in recent decades. Roe was decided 7-2 in 1973, with five Republican appointees joining two justices nominated by Democratic presidents.
But it’s the left that’s gone too far 🙄
