Books

I have authored two books that will help anyone in sales find true success by focusing on the people they serve.

S.M.I.L.E.: How a People-First Philosophy Creates Extraordinary Sales

In a world full of quick fixes and hyper-aggressive focus on systematized sales, S.M.I.L.E. will take you on a different path: to better sales and better living through relationship-building. Written for both rookie and veteran real estate agents and salespeople everywhere, this book is the antidote to the frenzied, formulaic, and pressure-driven sales tactics so common in the real estate world and other industries.

S.M.I.L.E. is a business parable about:

  • Living life with integrity, authenticity, and passion
  • Helping others become the best version of themselves
  • Transformation and personal growth in sales

Not just another gimmicky sales and business methodology, S.M.I.L.E. will show you how to build relationships that will feed a sales funnel not just today but for the long term, using effective, people-centered sales strategies everyone feels good about. Agents and salespeople will learn how to not only apply a relationship-based approach to successful selling but also carve out a meaningful legacy in their work and lives.

S.M.I.L.E. will help you redefine success and focus on making a difference, not just a dollar. This is a book about loving what you do, doing it in a way that impacts lives, and reaching new heights of personal and professional success.

  • S.M.I.L.E. combines a creative storyline that draws you in, with the success stories of real people. This is a must-read for any sales professional looking to take their business to the next level.”

  • S.M.I.L.E. would be a great addition to any brokerage wanting to adopt a people-first philosophy or for any agent who wants to transform their career. The philosophies and strategies are easy to understand and apply, and I especially liked the complete review at the end of the book. Even if you’re only able to adopt one or two of these ideas, your outlook will change enough to elevate your business little by little until you can revisit the book again.”

Circle Selling : A Revolution-ary Approach to Sales Success

Circle Selling turns the traditional linear sales approach on its head by offering a dynamic selling model that equates selling to a dance. Each dance step gracefully moves the sales professional and their dance partner toward identifying a solution that will improve their partner’s situation. It’s simple, it’s powerful, it’s fun, and it works to the tune of a 600% increase in sales!
