Hello Fellow Speakers and Entreprenuers! It is a pleasure to have the privilege of sharing some information about myself and what I will write about in future blogs. Today is Tuesday Sept 16th.
|Bill: Yale University's Woolsley Hall|
After a successful career in “corporate America”, my wife and I decided (she was 6 months pregnant at the time) that it was in our best interests for me to quit my job and start a sales representative business. Selling was my strength, and it seemed prudent to work for myself and my growing family. Afterall, how hard could it be?
Since this is a blog and not a book, I can’t begin to tell the tale of the ups and downs, the starts and stops, the successes and failures that were seen on this journey. I can’t effectively explain here (you should see me live though!) how the periodic desire to “move on”, to do something else met with the stubborn drive and willingness to keep “fighting the fight” and not to succumb to the challenges that are thrown at each and every one of us by everyday life.
I have prospered thru strong market growth, and survived the cataclysmic decline during our most recent “economic recession/depression” . . .whatever it is the politicians are calling it!
At the end of the day, there are 3 things that drive me: 1) my family: my wife of 27 years, and my 3 children (including college age twins), 2) the burning desire to excel and be known and respected as one of the best at my trade, and 3) sharing my success with others by communicating the lessons learned while navigating the constantly changing business climate.
An accomplished and award winning speaker, I am currently writing my first book. As a dynamic and entertaining speaker, I utilize a combination of stories and anecdotes to motivate and inspire my audience to take action. Sharing a story is one thing, sharing the “spark” to approach life differently is something else.
