Hey Class,

Hope you enjoyed the session on ‘Selling your idea/product’ last week and learnt some tips from our great speakers – Pawan, Bryan and Trey. The tips will come in handy. Good to see the group meshing well together and engaging in the exercises.

Attached is the presentation from the session – TYE Dallas-2012-2013-Sales-Sep9-2012.  It is also at this link.

We are getting into a nice rhythm now. In keeping with the flow we discussed, we will talk next week about how we actually go about ‘executing’ the plan we ‘developed’ and ‘building’ the product we ‘sold’.  Plans are great but it all comes down to ‘Execution’.  There is a funny scene in the movie ‘A Few Good Men’ where Tom Cruise talks passionately about a plan and when asked how he is going to ‘do it’ –  he says ‘I have no idea’!. – Here is a link to the clip if you haven’t seen it – http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=2127

So come prepared with that ‘practical hat’ on and let us discuss how we will go about building the great products we have all dreamed up! We will have speakers experienced in Supply Chain / Fulfillment and discuss the various aspects of turning ideas into reality.

We have a site which we will keep updated with information related to the program, news items, pics and posts.  Certain pages/posts have public visibility and others have restricted visibility. You will be able to see the pages/posts when you login. You will get your own login if you do not already have one. Some posts are meant for coaches only. Anyone can comment/reply through the site as well, on certain posts.

Thanks. I am having a lot of fun with the class and hope you are too.

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
