Here's someone I'd like to have lunch with...
This is the latest deal I got from Goodwill. For $1.00 plus tax, I got this book by Donald Trump.
Now The Donald and I have very little in common, but I like many of his ideas. This book is a very easy read, as he puts his ideas in bite sized chunks, and appears very human.
Although the catchphrase most commonly associated to Mr. Trump these days is "You"re fired," he likes stability within his organization.
Other topics touched upon in this book is why ego is important, the use of motivational material, the quality of your brand, and thinking big and living large.
The reason I have in the title that I would like to have lunch with Donald Trump. I think that would be really neat as I figure our table would get some great service. But that's not all. I would also like to pick his brain, get some ideas about making the most of my talents. In other words, I would like for him to "teach me how to fish."
