Direct Sales Leaders Look to Keynote Speaker Connie Podesta for New Economy Success Strategies

Award winning author and keynote speaker Connie Podesta teaches direct sales teams how to self-motivate, get ahead of the competition and STAND OUT, regardless of market conditions.

Dallas, TX – July 25, 2011 (via — Market conditions are changing at the blink of an eye (or click of a mouse). And direct sales leaders are turning to industry change expert Connie Podesta to teach productivity and profitability solutions – and how to “kick your own butt.”

“Changing and challenging economies will always make room for the tenacious entrepreneur,” says author, keynote speaker and change expert Connie Podesta. “The key for most direct sales companies is to give their teams the skills and solutions they need to SELF MOTIVATE, OVERCOME adversity and CONNECT with people.”

Connie Podesta ( ) isn’t your typical speaker. From the minute she gets on the stage, audiences realize she’s a straight-talking, kick-your-butt-with-love kind of motivator. While laughing and learning, attendees often experience the kind of eye-opening, career-changing awareness that moves them to ACT – rather than REACT to the world around them. They see the roadblocks they’ve put in their own way more clearly. And more importantly, they learn what it takes to turn those obstacles into very real opportunities.

“Your captivating, ‘tell it like it is’ style, delivered with your comedic flair, forced us to examine why we behave and react as we do. I was overwhelmed with messages and comments from employees praising you and the important message you delivered to us. I truly believe that lives were changed in a positive way because of your presentation,” says Stan Ivie, Deputy Director of the FDIC.

To succeed in sales today, it’s essential to:

* Commit to change old thought patterns and habits and adopt a powerful action plan
* Consider whether or not daily choices are bringing you closer to your goals
* Leverage strengths and bolster them with new skills and strategies
* Evaluate personal performance and leadership skills and continuously raise the bar

Connie Podesta’s Stand Out Strategies ( ) are empowering direct sales professionals to break out of traditional mindsets and in turn, break the boundaries of what they can accomplish. Achieving more in terms of sales productivity, business longevity and inspiring a legion of downline followers becomes possible with the right strategies, shift in thinking and of course, powerful people skills. Connie shares all with laugh-out-loud humor, edge-of-your-seat insights and a healthy dose of “get real” attitude adjustment.

“Health, wealth, success & happiness are not rights, but hard-earned PRIVILEGES. Entitlement is out – high performance is in,” shares Connie.  “If you want to out-think and out-perform the competition, creating the long-term, sustainable success that brings you the security you want with the balance you need, you’re going to have to do some things differently. That’s what I teach, and what’s leading salespeople across North America to make the kind of changes that allow them to finally realize the potential they always knew they had.”

10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd ( ) is Connie Podesta’s award-winning Best Business Book of 2011 which delivers many of her fresh, innovative, foundation builders for salespeople seeking the keys for better relationships, better productivity and life balance.
