Tom did not find success easily. He quit college after only three months. At 19 years of age, married and with a baby on the way, he took a job in construction. It wasn’t too long before Tom decided that this was not the way he wanted to spend the rest of his life, so he quit the construction job and took a job he thought would be easier–selling real estate.
Six months into his real estate career, Tom’s income was just $42 a month. He realized at this point that he wasn’t making money in sales because he didn’t know how to sell. After discovering that all the top producers in sales had extensive sales training, Tom set out to learn everything he could about professional selling methods.
Armed with drive, determination and knowledge, Tom Hopkins built his sales volume to over $14,000,000 within five years. Word of Tom’s record breaking sales success soon brought repeated requests to conduct sales training seminars across the country.
