“The mark of the professional in every field is preparation. The more thoroughly you prepare for a meeting of any kind, even with just one other person, the more effective you will appear and the better results you will get.
The power is always on the side of the person who has prepared the most thoroughly. The individual who comes into a meeting unprepared has diminished power and sometimes no power at all.”
-Brian Tracy, Self-Development Expert
I had the privilege of meeting Brian Tracy at a National Speakers Association Meeting several years ago, when he shared his wisdom with NSA chapter leaders.
