Brian Tracy - Brian Tracy Learning Systems

"This book is a unique and wonderful contribution to the art of professional selling. Danielle Kennedy has brought together a remarkable blend of practical insights and skills combined with a sensitive knowledge of personal emotions and character. Every sales professional should have this book as part of their permanent reading library."

Judi Sheppard Missett - Founder and CEO of Jazzercise

"Danielle Kennedy has written a sales book from the heart. I know her common sense approach to instinctive salesmanship works, because she and I have been successfully practicing these principles all of our lives. Her down to earth approach is a breath of fresh air in an era when sale's "how to" books are sometimes overwritten and technocratic."

Tom Hopkins - International Sales Trainer and Author

"If you have the desire to reach your full potential in sales, you will find the value of the material in 'Seven Figure Selling' to be incalculable. It's a must read for anyone committed to a career in selling. Danny has the unique ability to teach in such a way that you do not realize how much you are learning because you enjoy it so much..."

Larry Wilson - best-selling author and corporate consultant.

"Kennedy is a game-changer who can help anyone learn how to sell anything."
