The Sales Podcast

Mar 10, 2015 

About Today's Guest

Tom Hopkins is a NYT Best-Selling author, sales training legend, and all-around good guy. He was one of the first books I ever read on selling back in the mid-90's, and I still have 36 pages of typed notes from his powerful book, "How to Master the Art of Selling." It was a thrill to sit down at the microphone with Tom to get his take on selling today.

Tools To Thrive

  • Start Blogging Today: If you are new to blogging and need to put up a quick site and get real help with your hosting, try Bluehost. I've tried them all - GoDaddy, Hostable, HostGator, etc. All were good and bad. In December 2013 I took a long hard look at Bluehost, and what I found was nothing short of amazing. Their free domain service with the purchase of hosting, their 1-click WordPress setup and great customer service is what every new blogger and entrepreneur needs.
