Sales Hack #27: Sales Hack Sells 1,000 Copies!


Today (October 12, 2015) I was asked by The Corporate Executive Board (CEB) to join the CEB Sales & Marketing Summit next week in Vegas.  I was originally invited by CEB to attend a private event for 25 or so sales authors & speakers and turned out, I would be in Alaska fishing with my Dad & brother that particular week.  So I’m thrilled to be invited to the annual conference that expects to have 900 of the world’s thought leaders around sales & marketing in attendance.

SalesHackWhat’s super exciting to me is that by pulling this book together, I truly feel that I’ve accomplished a BIG mission in my life which is to help transform the lives of others in their abilities to sell professionally.  And today, when copy #1,000 of Sales Hack was ordered, I’m pleased that so many sales professionals can experience the power of this book.
