Bestselling Author of 16 books and Hall of Fame professional speaker with over 2,800 engagements worldwide.
I am the original author of Relationship Selling. That book along with The Acorn Principle have both become international bestsellers and been translated into multiple languages. I teach people to become better presenters, speakers and leaders through the practice of Self-Knowledge and Relationship Intelligence®.


My formal education was received at the University of Arkansas and focused on Marketing & Finance, but my professional education has come through the National Speakers Association, ASTD, and decades of original research into the field of Human Development. I have owned a psychological research firm and done immense personal research and practice to master this field.
