How to Have Your Cake and Your Skinny Jeans Too (Twirl Media, 2013)

I was always overweight and my Italian family kept telling me I was big boned. But, years ago, I lost the weight and found I had small bones under those big bones. Then, something happened… My life took a tailspin and I started to gain the weight back.

Nothing worked to get it off… And then I happened upon Josie’s book and downloaded the sample to my Kindle.

Wow! I was hooked instantly. This is NOT a diet book! This is NOT a rule book! This is NOT your fault!

Not only is the wisdom shared in a way you truly get but it’s like someone finally put the right lightbulb in a very dark and scary room. You can finally see… I mean REALLY see… The truth about your weight problems and that you have full control over losing weight by just using what you were born with… Your body!

Thank you, Josie, for helping so many find their way when all seemed lost.

UnMarketing: Stop Marketing. Start Engaging. (John Wiley and Sons, 2010)

You must build relationships!

Scott is nothing short of authentic at his speaking engagements and this book on UnMarketing is just an extension of his goal to illustrate the importance of engagement.

Throughout the book, Scott gives many examples from his own business that verify that the days of cold calling are over. People don’t want to be sold products – they want to be sold experiences. People don’t want to “trust you” – they want you to earn their trust. Customers are the ones that are voting on your business or products with their money and if you don’t engage and build a relationship with your customers, you are missing the boat.

Read it. Read it twice. Engage. Build relationships. Succeed!
