Why should I do business with youâ¦ and not your competitor? Whether youÂ are a retailer, manufacturer, distributor, or service provider â if you cannot answer this question, you are surely losing customers, clients and market share. This eye-opening book reveals how identifying your competitive advantages (and trumpeting them to the marketplace) is the most surefire way to close deals, retain clients, and stay miles ahead of the competition.
The five fatal flaws of most companies:
â¢ They donât have a competitive advantage but think they do â¢ They have a competitive advantage but donât know what it isâso they lower prices instead â¢ They know what their competitive advantage is but neglect to tell clients about it â¢ They mistake âstrengthsâ for competitive advantages â¢ They donât concentrate on competitive advantages when making strategic and operational decisions
The good news is that you can overcome these costly mistakes â by identifying your competitive advantages and creating new ones. Consultant, public speaker, and competitive advantage expert Jaynie Smith will show you how scores of small and large companies substantially increased their sales by focusing on their competitive advantages. When advising a CEO frustrated by his salespeopleâs inability to close deals, Smith discovered that his company stayed on schedule 95 percent of the time â an achievement no one else in his industry could claim. By touting this and other competitive advantages to customers, closing rates increased by 30 percentâand so did company revenues.
Jack Welch has said, âIf you donât have a competitive advantage, donât compete.â This straight-to-the-point book is filled with insightful stories and specific steps on how to pinpoint your competitive advantages, develop new ones, and get the message out about them.Â
From patient advocate and author of Living Well with Hypothyroidism Mary J. Shomon, here is a holistic roadmap for diagnosis, treatment and recovery for the millions of people suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism.
There are an estimated 3 million-plus Americans suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism, and patient advocate Mary J. Shomon will guide them through the diagnosis and the wide-ranging treatments available. Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism are the result of the thyroid gland being overactive. This gland controls the body's metabolism, so people afflicted with the disorder can suffer from symptoms such as significant weight loss, fatigue, muscular weakness, and rapid heartbeat, among others. In addition to conventional treatments, this resource uniquely highlights holistic treatments, and through case studies and testimonials from patients and doctors, presents an honest look at the lifestyles and choices of people living with these conditions.
Shomon presents the reader with a comprehensive resource that spans from diagnosis to treatment to life after treatment. She goes beyond the conventional advice of other books, utilizing patient anecdotes and, as a fellow thyroid disease patient, her own experience. Her extensive network of expertsâfrom conventional physicians to alternative practitionersâallows for a wide range of treatment options. In addition, a comprehensive Appendix serves as a fantastic resource for patients seeking treatment and additional advice.
The first edition of Living Well With Hypothyroidism (2/2000) started with a first printing of 7,500 copies and has now sold over 100,000 in the US. Shomon's The Thyroid Diet hit the New York Times extended bestseller list.
Mary Shomon has been praised by doctors around the country for her medical knowledge and sensitivity to patients' needs.
Barbara Bush brought attention to the plight of Graves' disease patients, announcing that she was suffering from it when she was First Lady.

Preview of Chapter 1: Choosing the Proper Soil Mixture
When you consider starting an indoor garden, you need to think about the soil. Plants need a healthy root system in order to thrive, and for those plants that are growing in pots, you need a proper growing mixture. Many of the âpotting soilsâ that are on the market arenât really âsoilâ at all, but mixtures of several ingredients. Because of this, you will need to establish a fertilizer program for your plants. One big help is adding compost to your plants. You can create your own compost mixture indoors by getting a big plastic tote and adding a potting soil. You can purchase one or throw in soil from old house plants, leaves, shredded paper, and even food scraps; just make sure that you donât throw in any oil, foil or plastic, or meat. Make sure to turn it regularly, just as you would your outdoor compost, and in a few months you will have a beautiful, dark and rich soil. When you mix the compost with any of the potting mixes on the market, the compost will help boost growth of the plants and offer an excellent growing medium. Just a few scoops of compost will add a vital nutrient to the soil: nitrogen. This will do wonders for your plants. Have you ever wondered what the ingredients in the potting soil mixes are? Well, one of the basic ingredients is tree bark that has been composted and screened into a very fine texture. Some of the mixes will contain peat moss, which makes the mixture dark, but there is a dispute in the actual nutrient value of peat moss. There are two other common additives that are in the form of a fertilizer and a wetting agent.
