Bill, I hope this finds you well. I was fortunate enough to hear you speak yesterday in Raleigh. I have to say, your words hit at home. It was great to hear that if there is something I want to get done in my life, I need to stand up from the bench and do it!

Bill, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your wonderful inspirational presentation on Wednesday for the Raleigh-Durham ALA group. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

I work for a firm in a small town, located about 45 minutes from Raleigh, that opened an office in Raleigh a few years ago. One of my owners definitely has the mantra, Always Forward. Again thank you for your time and wonderful meeting. We all need to be reminded that we set our own track and to constantly educate ourselves.

Your message is powerful and hope it reaches the ears of the masses out there that think they are stuck!

- Meredith Homlotis, Legal Administrator, Narron, O’Hale and Whittington, P.A.

Bill did an excellent job with our team. His ability to mix salient ideas specific to our team with big picture ideas helped everyone and was outstanding. Bill’s enthusiasm and passion exceeds all other speakers I have seen. I would recommend him to anyone, but especially those companies that are trying to grow to the next level!

- Tyler Haahr, CEO, MetaBank

For Always Forward! 

This book is must-read for anyone at any stage of his or her sales career. Period.

The author infuses energy into every page. And his “Think and Do” mantra is brilliant in its simplicity and substance. I especially appreciated his “33-1/3%” chapter, which will be a stress-reliever and put the inevitable rejections into proper perspective for those on the sales firing-line.

Those constantly facing clients’ efforts to chisel away at price will want to read the author’s take on WAP (Walk Away Power), which deals with the fine and often-difficult line between maintaining one’s self-respect—and capitulation.

Finally, the author’s uncle wore a lot of wisdom on his little tie clip, bearing the acronym YCDGBSOYA! I’ll let you discover the wisdom for yourself.

Do yourself—and your sales career—a big favor and order the book NOW.

Top notch presenter. Great blueprint to our success in 2016!


High energy – great thoughts and examples on what bringing passion to your job can yield. Very well done.


I appreciated his emphasis on “making a connection” because decision-makers typically do business with people they feel comfortable with.


Very impressed with him and his passion and enthusiasm for succeeding in life. I was ready to conquer the world when I left the room.


I enjoyed the speech because it was different in tone and style compared to other motivational speeches I have heard in the past. He got my attention. I thought it was great!


You killed it! Great takeaways!


I liked the speech and personally related to several things Bill said. I like how he incorporated into the speech to follow your heart.  Either you are in the right position, which in this case is sales, or you are not.  If you are in, then you should be all in and it should make you excited to get up each morning to do what you do.


I had shared my story with him afterwards and let him know that I could compare my experiences over the past year to several things he mentioned in his speech. Thanks for asking him to come and talk with us.


I can tell you, everyone in attendance really took something from your presentation.  One person in particular I was dubious on (career skeptic), couldn’t even refute the message and admitted they enjoyed it very much. I follow you on LinkedIn and enjoy your posts.  Motivation takes all form, and obvious reminder should never be dismissed…keep moving us forward.
