About 

Richard Plinke

Richard Plinke spent 35 challenging years learning his craft: Sales! He did that by working for large corporation in major metropolitan areas and building his own successful businesses. During that journey, he helped countless salespeople develop a more profitable and sustainable career. Plinke’s seasoned insights and hard-earned wisdom form the basis of his writing and teaching — insights and wisdom you can’t purchase with franchised razzle dazzle or a certificate of theoretical accomplishment. As Plinke puts it, “My credentials are the scars on my back.”

Plinke’s books have been widely acclaimed as honestly astute and pragmatically amusing. It’s not unusual to find yourself laughing out loud as you read one of his delightful collections of antidotal episodes from his colorful career. He has the rare gift of teaching without preaching.

Plinke is also an entertaining speaker who effectively strips away the mystique of finding true success. As Daniel A. Arthur of Enterprise Rent-A-Cart put it, “Richard Plinke has the rare ability to synthesize complex and broad-based sales doctrine and theory and make it assessable and easy to use. His message is informative, entertaining and inspirational. Reading or listening to him is a unique experience, and time well spent.”

Finally a sales book without the 7 laws or 5 principles. The author writes in a style that comes across as though he is giving a keynote, a very funny and entertaining keynote address! It's rare to come across a businessperson that can write in an everyman style.
