Invent It. Sell It, Bank It! Lori Greiner. 2014. ISBN 9780804176439. If you have a million dollar invention idea that you want to make a reality then this is a book for you. One of the Sharks on Shark Tank, the author gives you the straight goods on making stuff and selling it. She has created over 400 products and generated %500 m in revenue to boot. (And its mostly on QVS. Easy to read with lots of secrets laid out for you to take in. Especially important if you are going to make things ( like you would in a MakerSpace).

The Innovative Sale. Unleash your creativity for better customer solutions and extraordinary results. Mark Donnolo. 2014. ISBN 139780814433478. The author makes a clear and compelling case to place creativity inside your sales organization. Peppered with numerous real world examples, there is something for the high performing sales pro through to the sales leader in this book. It is current with numerous references to the buyers process driving your sales process. I appreciated his careful explaining of how to and how not to do this process of change. His website is the only disappointment as it lacks any compelling free content to drive attraction and traffic. A must have book for the sales leader with a large sales team.
