What inspired you to write your book?
I was never destined for success in sales. Two analytical parents, anti-salesperson household, got my bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology, tagged sharks, worked for Microsoft doing tech support, and didn’t get my first sales job until I was 27. After 17 years, realized what I, and hundreds of reps I trained, did to be successful in sales – without manipulation, tricks, or tactics.
