“Working with you over the past two years has had an enormous impact both on our sales team and on our sales revenue. Our total sales in 2006 increased by 32% over sales for 2005. Then, in 2007 our total sales to date have increased by 29% over the 2006 numbers. We couldn’t have done it without you….”
"In the four years I have been the CEO of ParishPay, we rarely have had someone impact our organization and improve our
results as you have. Last year we had three inside sales staff
members and this year we have two. Our results this year were 128 appointments set by phone in 3 months, as opposed to 45 last year. If anyone can do math, they can see the value of your input in a phone-based sales operation."
“My new sales were up 23% this past year, and I am extremely happy with the outcome. You have made me feel more confident about myself and my ability to sell printing.”
”...I feel confident that I have a proven script and can get around the gatekeeper to set the appointment. The greatest value I’ve gotten is being able to handle the emotions that come over me before I make the call and while on the phone. I’m a new sales professional so I know this has proved to be a great investment…”

An Alternate Identity
After losing many friends to AIDS, and then also recognizing the need for AIDS education targeted to youth, in 1991, Wendy founded Illusion Productions, a dance company of young people teaching young people about AIDS. From 1991 to 1997, this unique program, designed to reach at-risk youth, performed throughout New York City at high schools, community centers and after-school programs. To our knowledge, it was the only Dance Company in the world that provided peer-to-peer AIDS education.
Wendy is a former ballet dancer who performed with Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. (She was also “Mopsy” in the Kennedy Center’s Imagination Celebration production of The Tale of Peter Rabbit!) Wendy believes that everything that she knows in life, she learned in ballet class. She got into her current field, sales training, by accident—she needed a “day job.” But the results have been happy, and she has no regrets. Wendy had stopped dancing for many years because of osteoarthritis, (a common complaint for ballet dancers) but after two total hip replacements, she is once again taking dance class. (Wendy is nothing, if not determined.)
Wendy lives in New York City with her cats, Mama Cat and Mr. Mitz.
Here is a memorial to the much missed, Ms. Kitty.
I love my cat. Her name is Ms. Kitty. She was named after Mr. Cat, who died 13 years ago, and after Amanda Blake of “Gunsmoke” fame.
Those of you who are cat lovers are nodding your heads and smiling. The rest of you probably think I’ve totally lost it. But before you tune out completely, let me share some of the sales wisdom that I have learned from Ms. Kitty and from all the cats in my life.
Be clear in knowing your goal.
Ask for what you want.
Ask a lot of people.
Don’t take “no” for an answer.
