Praise for 1ndispensable

"I loved this book. Joe continues to teach a practical and powerful road map for a company′s success through personal connecting and service. Read this book and become truly indispensable to your customers."
—Fred Wilson Chairman and CEO, Saks Fifth Avenue

"If your key customers don′t think of you as indispensable, they should. In his latest straight–talking book, Joe Calloway tells you why that is true and teaches you what you need to know to make it happen."
—Larry Morse President, Quill Corporation

"I hate business books. . . too many graphs, studies, and analysis. They make me work. They make me have to figure out how the information will help me. Not this book. Joe has already done the work so I don′t have to. Joe tells me great stories of real companies full of real people that entertain me while I learn the lesson. He gives me understandable, easy–to–implement lessons that I know I can do. I hate business books, but I LOVE this one."
—Larry Winget Author of Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life

"If you want to run a truly superior business, this book is practical, sensible, down– to–earth advice on providing customer service that will simply separate you from the competition."
—Joe Scarlett Chairman of the Board, Tractor Supply Company

"Joe Calloway has provided us with another gift—Indispensable. In his book, he takes us on the journey of companies that every day maintain their focus on an ever–ascending, ever–improving path. The journey never ends, but far from discouraging, Joe′s book only adds to the joy and glory of the climb. This is a gift that should be opened and shared and provides a lifetime of opportunities for us all."
—Marti Eulberg Executive Vice President, Sales Operations Volvo Cars of North America, LLC
