Price may be what you pay, but value is what you feel and receive. In my case, I had a history when it came to the price of dance lessons but it took a special student, after a rocky start as a teacher, for me to truly discover why my assessments were off, and just how valuable dance lessons can be.

It can help you with your elevator pitch, help you convince a recruiter or client why you ’re the right person for a job, and even with an invitation to dance. Whatever level you ’re at in your selling game, keep listening, for my conversation with one of the greatest sales and communication legends of the last 40 years, Tom Hopkins.
