Want to make more money? Communicate better. Period.
So, what distinguishes money-making effective communicators from your buddy’s last rotten email? One major difference is word choice. Carmine Gallo joins us today to make you a top notch communicator. He studied Jeff Bezos’ communication style at Amazon and shares the leader’s transformation over the years. Years ago, Jeff was writing memos at a college level, but now he writes at an 8th grade level. And guess what? His writing and overall communication is lightyears better today at the 8th grade level than it was when he wrote at a college level. Carmine dives into why that works and shares tips for all of us to be better communicators.
Are you house hunting? Did you about fall over when you saw that interest rates are hovering right around 7% currently? In our headline segment today we talk about why. Even if you aren’t house hunting, you’ll want to hear this.
