About the Topic:
One of the biggest tools to career advancement is in knowing people. Specifically, you need people to know you, remember you, and like you. That's relatively easy for an outgoing personality, but what about someone that doesn't like people? It's still possible. Let me show you how even someone who doesn't like to talk to people can grow a solid professional network with a few easy steps.
Dale's passion for developing entrepreneurial talent started in high school and has been fine tuned throughout his career working for various companies around the world. Dale's efforts are focused on showing company leaders, as well as individual business professionals, how to harness their earning power and deliver effective bottom line results. The resources and skills that Dale brings to the table challenges conventional thinking and rocks the world of traditional business approaches—and the end result is undeniably superior to anything else out there. Dale's methodology injects intense entrepreneurial thinking into the professional mindset. The reality and immediate success rate that comes through Dale's approach not only improves the mood of work, but allows people to reach new heights in their career. In 2011, Dale wrote the book Resumes are Worthless, which outlines just a few of the successful business methods that have helped Dale achieve the successes outlined here.
