"Dan Milstein shows that the American Dream is alive and well for everyone, immigrant and natural born citizen alike. The skills he teaches can be used by anyone to develop their own business and sales efforts." --Ross Rojek San Francisco / Sacramento Book Review
"This little book glows with wisdom and a deep appreciation of mankind's ability to make the workplace and life happy, making it a volume that does indeed tell a story of how something great can grow from very little beginnings and also how a philosophy of a gentle immigrant lad can help us appreciate the true American Dream. --Grady Harp - Amazon Top Ten Reviewer
From the Author
The answer is simple - I'm happy to share my secrets because there really are no secrets. I'm a born salesman, so what I do is sell. I wake up thinking about our clients, I spend my entire day taking care of our clients' needs, and I go to bed thinking about how we can improve on what we did today and what we can do for our clients tomorrow.
So if someone should learn how I do what I do and then finds ways to do it better, fine! Maybe I'll learn a few things from them.
To get to where I am today I have built a sales organization in which I count on every member to have the same kind of customer focus as I do. This is important, because more than 400 employees and 1,500 of their family members count on Gold Star for their financial security.
But I want every member of my team to be far more than just secure. I want them to achieve as much success as they possibly can and to be happy pursuing their own passions. This makes my organization stronger, and it makes me stronger.
In these pages you will find a lot of information about how to sell anything. In many respects it can be used as a textbook on how to approach the sales profession and how to build a professional sales team. I have also shared enough about my personal journey to help you understand where my own drive to succeed comes from.
Enjoy my book. Learn my secrets. Then go and find your own passion. And - Always Be Closing.
