Amazon Reviews 

By Amazon Customer on July 24, 2005 - Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase

"This book is a MUST for anyone in direct sales. The two features most outstanding were: (1) how to stop giving away the store while trying to "entice" sales and hostess bookings and (2) how to overcome objections. Very readable and applicable to all fields. While I was reading Chapter 3 on getting bookings, the phone rang and I was able to apply what I had already read and book another demo! That was worth the price of the book right there!!?"

Together with E. Patricia Connor, in 2010, she cofounded Kindness Is Key Training & Publishing Inc., and published the HEARTMIND WISDOM Collection.
