Fortune 50 consultant Stephen Harvill reveals the secrets of the world’s best salespeople who earn at least one million dollars a year in “the only sales book most superstar hopefuls will need” (Publishers Weekly).

In this sharp, invigorating read, Fortune 50 consultant Stephen Harvill discovers twenty-one common behaviors of top earners across seven major industries. These are the secrets of the world’s best salespeople who rake in at least one million dollars a year—and the strategies that set them apart from the rest.

For over thirty years, Steve Harvill has helped successful sales teams do what they do better, smarter, more elegantly, and with more imagination. As a consultant for some of the top companies in the world, including Apple, Pepsi, Samsung, and Wells Fargo, he aids in simplifying unwieldy processes and making teams more effective.
