Dianna Huff, a professional marketing writer, bought "Rivers of Revenue" and was surprised when she started reading it. "I expected another dull business book full of the dry prose that puts one to sleep after three pages," Dianna says. "What I got instead was a book that grabbed my interest immediately. Reading it gave me goose bumps."

Dianne Huff, a professional marketing writer, bought Kristin Zhivago’s book, "Rivers of Revenue," because it was recommended on several business blogs she reads.

"I expected another dull business book full of the dry prose that puts one to sleep after three pages," Dianna confesses. "What I got instead was a book that grabbed my interest immediately. Reading it gave me the goose bumps. I finished the book in two days and spent the following weekend jotting down ideas on how to make my business better."

Dianna, who signs her emails with the confident declaration that she "combines marketing savvy and damned good writing for excellent results," was surprised that the book took her to a new level. "What I loved about the book is that it very clearly states what is obviously a 'duh' idea—'No customers = no revenue.'" Dianna says. "Make your customers happy, and you'll have a steady revenue stream. Well, duh. Yet, as we all know, many companies don't care if their customers are happy, which is why I'm flying on Southwest, instead of United, to a client meeting tomorrow. It's also why I'm now looking very closely at my own business, because now I know I can do some things better."

Dianna thinks that "Rivers of Revenue" is "must reading" for anyone who is in business for themselves—or who works for one. "Rivers of Revenue is for big businesses, small businesses, mom and pop shops, and the sole entrepreneur," Dianna says. "It's for business managers who think their revenue stream will last forever and for those who are going through a market shift and don't know what to do. Kristin's strategies and tips for tapping into revenue streams--and how to keep them flowing--are practical, easy to understand, and, best of all, easy to implement."

"I wrote 'Rivers of Revenue' to help business owners like Dianna," Kristin says. "It demystifies marketing, showing how your marketing strategy should be driven by your customer's buying process and by the promises your customers want your company to keep. It talks about how to turn your company into a promise-keeping machine. And it shows you how to map out your customer's buying process--basically reverse-engineering the sale--so you can manufacture sales in quantity."
