Bill Good

Bill Good began his sales career selling dictionaries door-to-door. He knew that there had to be a better way to sell, and before that, an even better way to prospect. He set about to discover what those methods might be.

30-plus years later, he is the Chairman of Bill Good Marketing, Inc, a top salesforce training and marketing firm. He has trained many of the top salespeople in the financial services industry as well as others who went on to stellar careers. David Bach (author of The Automatic Millionaire) and Chris Gardner (author of The Pursuit of Happyness) are two such.

His prospecting methods have been taught in tradeschools, colleges, and financial industry training programs and have become quite mainstream. As a keynote speaker and writer, he has delivered over a thousand seminars and keynote speeches, written 300 articles for Research Magazine (and over 1,000 other articles for other publications), and of course, authored his first book Prospecting Your Way to Sales Success in print since 1986. His new book, Hot Prospects, was published August 12, 2008 by Scribner.

In his free time, he enjoys photography and is in the process of preserving 10,000 family photos, some from the 1800s. He lives in Draper, Utah with his wife Joava and enjoys summer vacations with his children and grandchildren.
