Last month I had the pleasure to get to know some amazing CEOs running some very successful businesses. They all have "million dollar ideas" and they exude passion for helping sales revenues grow, as well as enthusiasm.
Some of these CEOs and Presidents are authors and keynote speakers, others are consultants and trainers. The common factor for all is that they embody the "new way to sell" which is very different from the old boys I learned selling skills from in the 1980s.
Here are five to know. Visit their sites; find them on Twitter and Facebook. More to come.
