Praise for Seal the Deal

by Suzi Pomerantz

Seal the Deal is an excellent source for anyone in business. Suzi’s powerful insights and practical tools will enable business people in organizations of all sizes. Whether you are inside a large organization and want to increase your visibility, a retiring executive about to launch your own consulting effort, or a sales executive wanting to unlock your best performance, you will find valuable ideas, tools, and methods in this book. For those newer to solopreneurship, Pomerantz’ book is an integrated system that functions as a personal sales coach throughout a 10-week course. I’m hooked! I kept intending to just skim but I couldn’t seem to skip any of it. Of the 14 books ‘in progress’ on my reading table, none has captured my attention like Seal the Deal! This is a ‘must have’ for anyone who wants to increase the effectiveness of his or her networking, marketing, and sales efforts.”

—Angela Wagner, CPCC, executive coach and top-performing executive, Accenture.

“This book is structured brilliantly—you have a chance to ‘eavesdrop’ on an actual telecourse, on the Seal the Deal approach, where actual participants voice their questions, anxieties, and insights. It puts the reader right in the learning experience. Seal the Deal is very readable with a professional yet conversational tone. And you’re never in doubt that Suzi knows what she’s talking about!”

Seal the Deal is packed with worksheets, templates, personal action plans and homework action steps—just what anyone who sells services or ideas needs to build or transform a successful business.”

“Have you ever wanted to ‘eavesdrop’ on a highly successful coach who is sharing words of wisdom? Well, in Seal the Deal, you get to do just that when you follow the conversations between Suzi Pomerantz and several of her coaching colleagues. I’ve known Suzi for many years and she has never failed to amaze me with her intelligence and skills as a coach. This time she graciously shares her knowledge, experience and best practices as she helps professional services providers to sidestep the pitfalls and mistakes most beginners (and even seasoned practitioners) make in networking, marketing and selling their services. There’s a wealth of information with strategies, tips, tools, powerful questions, checklists, and even a 10 step plan to follow. It’s all just waiting for you to implement. Am I a Raving Fan of Suzi and Seal the Deal? Absolutely!”

Everything that Suzi has to say about networking, marketing, and sales relates directly to me and my life as a coach and consultant. I also learned quite a bit about how to get out of my own way—I wish I had her book 40 years ago when I first began consulting and coaching!”
