Who's pulling for you? Who's got your back? Who's putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor. Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board - but they're not your ticket to the top. If you're interested in fast-tracking your career, what you need is a sponsor - a senior-level champion who believes in your potential and is willing to advocate for you as you pursue that next raise or promotion. In this powerful-yet-practical audiobook, economist and thought leader Sylvia Ann Hewlett - author of 10 critically acclaimed books, including the groundbreaking Off-Ramps and On-Ramps - shows why sponsors are your proven link to success. Mixing solid data with vivid real-life narratives, Hewlett reveals the "two-way street" that makes sponsorship such a strong and mutually beneficial alliance. The seven-step map at the heart of this audiobook allows you to chart your course toward your greatest goals. Whether you're looking to lead a company or drive a community campaign, Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor will help you forge the relationships that truly have the power to deliver you to your destination. 1.

In network marketing, the easiest and most comfortable way to prospect, sell, and sponsor, is with... a story. Facts are boring. Everyone represents a company with great facts. Our prospects have heard that all before. But with a story, everything changes. The prospect becomes involved in the story, and instantly sees what you see. And isn't that what you want? So forget the flip chart, the presentation book, the website, the PowerPoint, and the video. These are great tools after your prospect has made the mental decision to do business with you. Instead, use stories to get that "Yes" decision. Then you can do your regular boring, fact-filled presentation, but use this presentation as your new distributor's first training session. The difference is monumental. Instead of detailed explanation (facts) about what stories do inside your prospects' heads, I focused this audiobook on the actual stories I use, word for word. You will love these stories, you will use them often, and you will definitely enjoy the increased success in your business. Join the top earners now and become a professional storyteller. 1.

Hard Driving is the dramatic story of one man's dogged determination to live the life he loved, and to compete, despite daunting obstacles, at the highest level of his sport. Wendell Scott figured he was signing up for trouble when he became NASCAR's version of Jackie Robinson in the segregated 1950s. Some speedways refused to let him race. ''Go home, nigger,'' spectators yelled. And after a bigoted promoter refused to pay him, Scott appealed directly to the sport's founder, NASCAR czar Bill France Sr. France made a promise Scott would never forget, that NASCAR would never treat him with prejudice. For the next two decades, Scott chased a dream whose fulfillment depended on France backing up that promise. Persevering through crashes, health problems, and money troubles, Scott remained convinced he had the talent to become one of NASCAR's best. Hard Driving documents a previously untold chapter in the history of integration, politics, and sports in America. It reveals how France, founder of the multibillion-dollar NASCAR empire, reneged on his pledge and allowed repeated discrimination against Scott by racing officials and other powerful figures. It details France's alliances with leading segregationist politicians, such as George Wallace; the reluctance of auto executives, such as Lee Iacocca, to sponsor a black driver; and the inspiring support Scott received from white drivers, such as nascar champions Ned Jarrett and Richard Petty, who admired his skill and tenacity. 1.

The Adventures of Philip Marlowe was radio's top detective program. Raymond Chandler's celebrated hardboiled private eye, Philip Marlowe, made his radio debut in 1945 on The Lux Radio Theatre with "Murder My Sweet" starring Dick Powell. Two years later, NBC would bring the character to the air in his own weekly series starring Van Heflin in The New Adventures of Philip Marlowe. Being a summer replacement for The Bob Hope Show, the series was short-lived and ended on September 9th, 1947. CBS revived it in 1948 with The Adventures of Philip Marlowe starring Gerald Mohr. With Producer/Director Norman MacDonnell at the helm, the series captured the largest audience in radio by 1949. Scripts for the show were written by Gene Levitt, Robert Mitchell, Mel Dinelli, and Kathleen Hite. While Chandler's distinctive similes were largely lacking, the strong, dry, sarcastic narration was there, and the way Mohr delivered his lines made you forget they weren't written by Chandler. Supporting Mohr, were radio's best, including Howard McNear, Parley Baer, Lawrence Dobkin, Virginian Greg, and Lou Krugman. Mostly heard sustained (without a sponsor), it lasted until 1951. 12-3-49 The Kid on the Corner 1-28-50 The Hairpin Turn 2-7-50 The Long Arm 2-14-50 The Grim Echo 2-21-50 The Ladies Night 2-28-50 The Big Step 3-7-50 Monkey's Uncle 3-14-50 The Vital Statistic 3-21-50 The Deep Shadow 3-28-50 The Sword of Cebu 4-4-50 The Man on the Roof 4-18-50 The Angry Eagle 1.
