Default Who's Influenced You The Most In Your Selling?

For those of you that sell, who has influenced you the most in your sales career? (a boss? mentor? parent? a sales trainer or author? Who?)

Well, is there really some other answer than the knowledge of NLP and other similar knowledge. I am working with my two mentors who I have grown up with, and I have been taught a lot. But mastering knowledges like NLP is just on another level, there is nothing like it.

Does "two mentors who I have grown up with" mean your parents? Or brother or sister? Or who?

I'm most influenced by Ted Nicholas (author of many direct marketing and copywriting books). He taught me how to multiply your sales effort. He got me to understand what advertising really is—salesmanship multiplied by media!

Mine was a book. Ready, Fire, Aim.

It got my head in the right space to concentrate on sales.
