A Galway-based former binman is celebrating this week with the news that his first book has climbed to No.3 in the Amazon Kindle's Bestseller List in the 'Sales & Selling' category.
Oisin Browne, author of The Binman's Guide to Selling, started out as a second helper on the The City Bin Co.'s early morning bin collection route in Galway back in 1998. Rising up through the ranks over the past 15 years, he has seen the company grow from a handful of employees with one truck, two customers and four bins in Galway, to over 100 staff in Ireland and ambitious plans for Europe.
Now a shareholder in the company and Social Media Lead in the Sales and Marketing team, Browne's book charts the lessons learned over the years in bite-sized tips to help guide the budding entrepreneur or salesman, or anyone seeking inspiration to get into a winning mindset.
Welcoming the news, Oisin said "The book has clearly connected with a mass audience and I have been overwhelmed by the feedback from all four corners of the globe. People from all walks of life have taken the time to personally contact me with messages of support and appreciation. The books is being translated into Spanish, Catalan, French and German. I have already begun writing my second book, and have concrete ideas for further publications over the coming years."
The Binman's Guide to Selling has received international acclaim from Libby Gill (Business Coach and branding brain behind the Dr Phil Show in the US), and Marshall Goldsmith (million-selling author of the New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There). Most recently, renowned entrepreneur and business author, Verne Harnish said Browne's book "provides the precise language and approaches to ramp-up your sales effectiveness - one bite-sized piece at a time."
