FROM THE INTRODUCTION

When I took up the family flag of entrepreneurship with my own digital marketing agency, I was talking with the sales vice president of a new client company who had risen in the selling ranks at AT&T. I mentioned that during my own tenure with Dad’s corporate training company (by that time 15 years earlier) we had developed the core curriculum for what had been called the University of Sales Excellence at AT&T. My client asked about the programming and I described it, to which he replied, “Oh, they’re still using that.”

I shouldn’t have been surprised. Dad’s programs were always built on solid foundations of selling best practices; methods which, over time, prove immune to trend and popularity. Originally written as a companion volume to a planner and organizer for corporate salespeople, the content has been updated to reflect modern modes of productivity and communication, but other than that the information remains as Dad wrote it: the most effective soil and fertilizer for reliable, profitable sales growth.
