Even internationally known motivational gurus need someone to guide them, initially, on their own path to success, and for Tony Robbins, I was was privileged to be his early mentor. Tony has written the foreword for my book, The Lost Art of Direct Sales. I taught him sales and the power of influence as a teenager. It is important to me to continue to pass along that same wisdom, gained from a lifetime in sales, to readers world-wide. As Robbins says of the lessons espoused in the book, “These rules of influence are timeless and classic.”
While there are motivational chapters in my book “The Lost Art of Direct Sales”, this is chiefly focused on the “art” of selling. I believe sales is a ‘profession not a job’ which I am openly honored to be a part of, and I am a devout believer in sales as a career of service and if you will get in it, which I point out in my book, more than once, that it also happens to be the “highest paid profession in the world.” My own successes – running the gamut from direct sales to financing to real estate investment and management – are because I made sales my sole profession.
Having personally mentored Tony Robbins along with many others, I consider the passing along of knowledge, and “The Lost Art of Direct Sales”, to be a way of giving back. I truly believe it is our obligation, “In order to keep it, you have to give it away.”
Dan Vega, Entrepreneur and TV Talk Show Host, known as “America’s #1 Results Guy”, calls the book “the most complete and practical sales guide I have ever read.” It is available on Amazon, if you want to pick it up. Please take time to read it and let me know what you think. I am sincerely interested.
