Story
Tagline
A regular sales guy
Introduction
I trained 10,000 salespeople in Europe and the United States, created Selling Power magazine from scratch, built it up to over 200,000 subscribers, turned down a $10.5 million offer to buy the magazine. Almost lost the business when the Internet demolished print. Created the Sales 2.0 Conference to align with technology and moved Selling Power magazine into the cloud serving over 100,000 readers. I love creating videos to enhance the online magazine. My new video channel gets over 90,000 views a month. I get up every morning with a "success attack" trying to fulfill my small role in building and co-creating a better world for the next generation.
