About the Author

Eric Otis Simmons was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and moved to Montgomery, Alabama at the age of 13 with his Mother who raised him as a single parent. He went on to graduate from Auburn University where he finished in the Top 10% of his class (B.S. Business Administration, Marketing minor) and earned Varsity Basketball letters as a 5’ 7” walk-on player.

After College, Simmons spent a little over three decades in Corporate America in various Sales/Sales Management roles with Fortune 500 employers IBM, AT&T, GE, MCI and W.W. Grainger. At IBM, he was named “Class President” of the Company’s then world-renowned Sales Training Program and appeared on a WSFA-TV live broadcast entitled, “Blacks in Corporate America.” His domestic and international business travels took him to 37 states and also Paris, Brussels and Hong Kong where he successfully closed sales of $500,000, $1 million, and $25 million respectively. During his AT&T tenure, Simmons was featured in Black Enterprise Magazine’s “Powerplay” section in an article entitled, “The new deal on business entertaining.”

A Certified Wix Webmaster, Simmons started his own website development company, Eric Simmons Enterprises, Inc. (ESE, Inc.) in 2017. The company builds “Personal Brand” websites for High School Student-Athletes to help them get recruited by College Coaches. ESE, Inc. utilizes Simmons’ Copyrighted EC3 Continuum methodology to assist Student-Athletes and their Parents with the critical stages of Engaging Coaches (for Recruiting), Engaging Colleges (for Admission), and Engaging Companies (for Employment).

After roughly 15 years of people urging him to write a book about his life, in March 2017, Simmons released his popular self-published Memoir, “Not Far From The Tree.” The book is dedicated to his Mother and speaks to the invaluable “seeds of knowledge” she instilled in him that enabled him to accomplish some incredible things in life, despite seemingly impossible odds.

At the time of publication of, “#HTSP – How to Self-Publish,” Simmons’ Memoir had been acquired by 25 Libraries, 7 of which are amongst the largest in the Nation. The most notable being the New York Public Library which ordered his Memoir for its prestigious Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
