If you’ve ever wanted better people skills, to communicate better, work better, and have people on your side, whatever you’re trying to do, then do we have the special show for you.
Today I’ll be talking with Dave Kerpen, entrepreneur, speaker, and NYT Times Best-selling author. He’s the founder and CEO of Likeable Local, a social media company, and the chairman and cofounder of Likeable Media. He is also the author of a fantastic new book, The Art of People: 11 Simple People Skills That Will Get You Everything You Want.
And that’s just what we’ll talk about today, simple tools and techniques to help you work, play, and communicate better with those around you for your greatest happiness and success.
That plus we’ll talk about first dates at 21, 29 pairs of orange sneakers–and counting, how to eat at French Laundry, who’s the president of table clearing, why it’s oops I got your voicemail again, and how to have a free ballpark wedding–nationally televised, of course.
