My Mission Statement

I am on a mission to improve the relevance and the profitability of local marketing services for the buyer, the salesperson and the supplier, in that order.

Let me know if I can help you.

Free Productivity Tools

Setting a goal is just the first part of accomplishing something you want. In the Franklin Covey 4DX Operating System, your goal is called a lag measure, it lags behind your activities. The second discipline in 4DX is to focus on your lead measures, those activities that you can leverage that will influence the lag measure. You can download my free Sales Funnel Calculator to help you calculate your lead measure activity levels required to achieve your goals.

Sales, Management and Leadership Training

The most rewarding activity in my life is helping others grow and prosper through the training and development services I offer. By any conservative estimate, in the past 25 years, I’ve trained over 4,000 salespeople, presented to tens of thousands of advertisers and helt sell hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising. Whether the training is in-person or online, I always do my best to ensure that you learn something helpful you can start using immediately.

My online academy is not just a library of training videos. My courses are interactive with live video conferencing, personalized assignments, assessments and collaborative activities.

The Webinars

In today’s fast-paced, connected world, getting your people together in one place at one time for a training or sales event can sometimes be difficult. Let’s arrange to deliver the content in a webinar.
