By making small changes and focusing on the thing he did well, which at the time was telephone sales, Dean gradually pulled his life together. He made a wish list, surrounded himself with successful people he could learn from and went to workshops and lectures to study as much as he could.
Deano’s inspirers include Jim Rohn, Allan Pease and Zig Zigler. But it’s not about just reading the books, but putting what you learn into practice, and now his life represents the summation of all the ‘good bits’ of those that have influenced him.
Deano has been selling since 1982, and was not always successful doing so! He’s been doing radio sales since 1994 where he’s been successfully selling radio advertising, a notoriously difficult field to sell in. His unique philosophy and attitude has rocketed him into the top 1% of sales income earners in New Zealand. It’s not just the money, but by getting out of his comfort zone and learning sales, he’s now in a market that he’s extremely passionate about and is able to teach others these valuable skills as well.
Deano now travels around New Zealand and Australia as a keynote speaker and sales coach. Forget boring lectures… Deano holds his audiences rapt with stories of luck, lotto and lots of laughs.
