Author and True Blue Life Insurance Founder Brian Greenberg is Today’s Honoree

“Brian takes the topic of marketing and breaks it down into manageable, understandable steps.  From the entrepreneur just starting out, to the seasoned executive who may have hit a rut, to everyone in between, Brian shows how to use inbound marketing, a group of systems that work on their own to bring organizations business.  He provides wonderful information with a straightforward perspective that is easy to understand and implement.”

In a recent Gallop poll, sales professionals were ranked lower in honesty than the US Congress.  That may account for why consumers are increasingly looking to peers rather than companies, gurus, thought leaders, and “experts” for advice on what to buy, watch, read, listen to and eat.  Online companies such as Amazon and TripAdvisor are successful mainly because of user-generated reviews.  As marketing analytics become more precise, consumers will continue to grow more suspicious, and the companies that will thrive in this environment are the ones whose salesmen don’t sell!

Marketing guru and expert, Brian Greenberg, has published a new book that provides entrepreneurs, small and large businesses with proven methods for long-term marketing success.  THE SALESMAN WHO DOESN’T SELL shows readers how to build successful reputations by leveraging reviews, social media, websites, and marketing efforts that will spur sales all without ever having to pick up a phone.

“Each year entrepreneurs and business owners are bombarded with books and articles telling them how to be successful,” says Greenberg. “I want to help business owners cut through the clutter and understand the obstacles they face when it comes to marketing their companies.  I know because I’ve been through it all and found a better way…better methods for understanding long-term marketing success.”

A successful SEO marketing professional with decades of experience developing passive-income businesses online, Greenberg―the salesman who doesn’t sell―shares his unique, time-honed strategies to drastically increase sales without putting in overtime hours. Brian’s system answers customer questions, addresses any objections, and persuades customers to a buying decision without needing to talk to customers.

Customer happiness is quickly becoming the leading metric in predicting future revenue growth. Business owners must be open to taking a loss on some transactions and doing away with black and white rules in regard to customer issues. Brian believes that if you run your business with a focus on customers happiness and you properly leverage the social proof you build up, over time your business will grow exponentially. Customers will begin to come to you, rather than you trying to attract customers.

The Salesman Who Doesn’t Sell is an indispensable resource for any professional looking to increase business, from doctors to restaurant owners to e-commerce entrepreneurs.  Brian Greenberg is giving away 5,000 free downloads of the audio version of his book to entrepreneurs and up to 5 of their employees to show that ethical and transparent business practices are better for even the most profit preoccupied executives.  To get a free download, go to

Author Chloe Hung is Today’s Honoree

Amazon Bestselling Author Chloe Hung celebrates her newest accolade by offering her new book, Strength in Numbers, FREE to those who visit her website.

Chloe Hung, an international career and financial consultant turned author, is passionate about the power of actuarial science. In her new Amazon bestselling book, Strength in Numbers: An In-Depth Look at Actuarial Science for Math Enthusiasts, Hung offers insight into what actuaries do and why this field is one of the fastest-growing in the world.

As an actuary and a lifelong pursuer of mathematical knowledge, Hung realized that her field seemed somewhat inaccessible to many college students, even those who loved math.

According to Hung, “Many students have a tough time deciding on their college degree. They fear making the wrong choice. Some are really passionate about math but have no idea which path to pursue in university. Some may have heard of actuarial science but have no idea what is it all about.

Her new book, Strength in Numbers, puts those fears to rest and offers a simple, candid look at actuarial science.

Designed to benefit both novice actuaries and those with years in the field, Strength in Numbers is packed with practical tips and useful insights about the actuarial industry. The book offers advice on how to pursue a math passion as an actuary; the requirements for the degree; tips for selecting the right school; the facts about the actuarial industry; the best way to land an internship or full-time job; the skill set required to be successful as an actuary; challenges faced by the profession; and misconceptions about actuaries. Strength in Numbers will help students decide definitively if actuarial science is the right course for them.

Critics are supportive of the book, noting: “Strength in Numbers demystifies what actuarial science is all about and why students should or should not pursue this path. If you want to learn about this mysterious industry that is relatively unknown to many around the world, read this book!”


During her years as a student, author Chloe Hung found actuarial studies to be particularly challenging and often wondered if she had made the right decision to study this topic. She also struggled to find a job in the industry upon graduation. After learning more about investing and applying her math skills to this field, Hung learned the secrets of how to use actuarial science outside of the industry. She now shares this knowledge with readers in her new book, Strength in Numbers.

The Sales Evangelist Donald Kelly is Today’s Honoree

Let me guess: you are new to sales or are an entrepreneur who is frustrated with the amount of money you are making. The crazy thing is you know you could do a lot better, but you don’t know how to improve or where to start.

Maybe you have been selling for years, but the evolving sales landscape with social selling practices and changes in buying behaviors has you confused. You are looking for ways to sharpen your selling skills. I know. I’ve been there. We want to find more qualified leads, close more business and earn more money. That is why I created “The Sales Evangelist.”

This is a place where sellers of all levels can get the education needed to overcome the most challenging obstacles salespeople are facing. I offer a lot of this education through our podcast, The Sales Evangelist, which has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine, Huffington Post, Yahoo Finance, South Florida Business Journal and UpStart.

Ever since I was a kid, sales was in my DNA. Growing up in Jamaica, I watched my dad work as an entrepreneur and saw my mom hustling to create a better way of life for us. I instantly fell in love with the art of selling. I was that kid in the front yard selling cookies, candies, mangoes or whatever I could sell.

But, just like you, I wasn’t always successful. I was part of that 80% who brought in 20% of the business and I hated that! I wanted to be part of the top-performing 20% who brought in 80% of business. I was sick of not making the money I knew I deserved.

Fortunately, I was granted the opportunity to receive expert, professional sales training. I read sales books, learned from the top performers, and I hustled harder than ever before. As a result, I began to close more business. I was a selling machine! I was making commission, paying off debt and earning the income to take care of my family. The satisfaction of being a confident seller changed my life and it empowered me to DO BIG THINGS.
