One of Americas most successful and dynamic businessmen, Tom Hopkins did not find success easily. Born in Burbank, California, Tom quit college after only three months. At 19 years of age, married and with a baby on the way, he took a job in construction. It wasnt too long before Tom decided that this was not the way he wanted to spend the rest of his life, so he quit the construction job and took a job he thought would be easier selling real estate.
Six months into his real estate career, Toms income was just $42 a month. Tom realized at this point that he wasnt making money in sales because he didnt know how to sell. After discovering that all the top producers in sales had extensive sales training, Tom set out to learn everything he could about professional selling methods.
Armed with drive, determination and knowledge, Tom Hopkins built his sales volume to over $14,000,000 within five years.
In 1976, Tom founded Tom Hopkins International, Inc., and dedicated his life and his company to teaching and inspiring others through his seminars, books, audio and video training programs. Today, over 35,000 corporations and millions of professional salespeople through the world utilize his professional sales training materials.
