Weldon Long Keynote

IN 2003 WELDON LONG WALKED OUT OF A HOMELESS SHELTERand built an Inc 5000 company with over $20,000,000 in sales in just 60 months . In 2009, his company was selected as one of Inc. Magazines Fastest Growing Private Companies in America. Today New York Times Bestselling author, Weldon Long is one of the nation’s most powerful speakers and a driven motivator who teaches others the Sales and Prosperity Mindset philosophies that catapulted him from desperation and poverty to a life of wealth and prosperity. He empowers people to overcome adversity with his three powerful keynote offerings and can build a custom message based on his wealth of experience for any mountain you want to overcome.

To book overcoming adversity and peek performance speaker Weldon Long call Executive Speakers Bureau 901-754-9404.


During this keynote he will talk about his journey from prison to a successful entrepreneur and New York Times Best-Selling Author and the mindset it took for him to get there. He will share his unique FEAR (Focus, Emotion, Action, Results) process of how to transform your mindset to one of prosperity and focus to get exactly what you want out of your life.


During this inspiring keynote, Weldon talks about the sales process he created to catapult himself from a homeless shelter to building a $20,000,000 company in just 5 years. He will share his incredible RISC sales process (Relationship, Investigate, Solution, Conclusion). This proprietary process leads customers down the “sales hallway” to proactively close the doors to the most common objections before they ever get brought up- “I need three bids”, I need a cheaper price” and ” I need to think about it” – This program finishes with the four most powerful words in sales, “Will you trust me?” Attendees will leave with strategies they can apply immediately to dramatically increase margins and close more business.


During Weldon’s 15 years of incarceration he reached a turning point and read Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s, The 7-Habits of Highly Effective People. Not only did the book have a profound effect on his life’s turnaround, but he was able to met Dr. Covey several years later to thank him personally. At that meeting Dr. Covey told Weldon, “I am convinced you have a very special mission in life.” and endorsed his first book The Upside of FEAR. Under a licensing agreement with The Franklin Covey Organization Wally teaches some of the key principles for being an effective 7-habits leader.


Because of Weldon’s personal challenges to overcoming adversity and experience as a business leader he can speak your company’s specific language and relate to your employee’s in an everyday way other speakers just can’t deliver. Contact us today to customize your perfect message today.
