Plan For The Future It is Where You Will Spend The Rest Of Your Life

I have this strap line  across the top of my business cards. It lets people know I am forward thinking and perhaps its  a good idea for many people to think along those lines.


The aim of this site is to share with as many sales professionals, or those wanting to learn to become a Sales Professional, as possible my skills in the hope I can be of benefit to the World of Selling in general and the Professional Salesperson in particular. I consider the sales profession to be the most important in the world. Nothing Happens Until a Sale Is Made.

Factors Affecting The Aim

Over the past 20 years a profession of compliance has been born.  This profession was started for all the right reasons however ‘The Road To Hell Is Paved with Good intentions’.  What actually happened is in the interest of box ticking any marketing or Sales skills were frowned upon. Sales became a dirty word Banks and other organisations took to the idea of disguising the most important profession as something more acceptable to the box tickers.  They became ‘New Business Executives’, and many other names that undermined the most meaningful profession in the world.  Now is the time to regenerate the pride, honour and professionalism in the ancient and honourable profession of Sales Person.  Nothing happens until a sale is made.

About Me


I am a top class Professional Salesman I thought that title would never change however with all the Political Correctness I now have to title myself a Professional Salesperson.  45 years ago a Sales Manager announced me as a Born Salesman, this was meant as a compliment.  As far as I was concerned that was wide of the mark.  I have read many copies of The Times Newspaper, Hatches, Matches and Despatches Column. Births Marriages and Deaths. Every day there would be announcements that a Beautiful baby girl had been born……

A beautiful baby boy had been born…. I never ever saw a Beautiful Born Salesman has been born……

It wasn’t a compliment I have spent 60 years honing my skill as a top class Professional Salesperson and now I want to share those skills with you before I die.

I don’t always make the sale which is a good outcome, the  result of  not closing a sale gives me the opportunity to review what I did right and what I should do differently.

Throughout these pages I will attempt to suggest to you how you can become a top class Salesperson in the  greatest profession ever.

You will come to realise the Oldest Profession is also the Greatest Profession.  Professional Selling.  What gives me the right to suggest the profession of selling is  better than any other profession?  I firmly believe that statement because:

‘Nothing Happens Until A Sale Is Made’.
