Lou is a former professional baseball player and coach. After his sports career, he moved into training and development contract work for national organizations and companies. In his 30 year second career Lou has worked with over 2,800 companies in 44 states and two foreign countries. When not on the radio as a talk show he has written over 12 books, including his newest book, Reach Beyond: How to Jump Over Hurdles and Land on Success.

Quotable Quotes:

On the gravestone, there are two numbers. But the only thing that really counts is the dash in between. And what do we do with that dash. - Lou Vickery

Listen to your heart, and there is always a better you in you. - Lou Vickery

Your heart will tell you what you need to do. - Lou Vickery

Start looking at failure for what it can teach you. It's just a singular event. It doesn't define your whole life. And the only way you're gonna learn how to do anything better is to fail at it. - Jason Will

Life offers us plenty of U-turns, if we just take 'em. - Lou Vickery

Salespeople tend to beat around the bush. They're scared to ask somebody to do what? To buy. As I call it, "get the yes." You gotta get the yes. You may get 18 nos, but you only need one yes.  - Lou Vickery

Any type of sales, you should be handing out 500 to 1000 cards a month. I know that's old-school, but you've got to let people know what you do. You have to be excited. First, if you're not excited about it, don't do it. Get out of it. Go find something you'll get excited about. Because you have to be really excited about the business that you're in, particularly in sales. Because it comes through. - Lou Vickery

If I had one advice, I'd say, "Quote 'em high and ask 'em to buy." - Lou Vickery

Selling is asking. - Jason Will

You can't steal second base with one foot on first. - Lou Vickery

Jumping up and down, hollering and screaming, creating excitement is one thing. But when you got controlled excitement where you got a game plan to get to the next level. - Lou Vickery

If you've got the right attitude, and you got the right skill set, and you know your product, what in the world is to keep you from asking for the sale? - Lou Vickery

It takes 65 muscles to frown; it takes only 12 to smile. Why work overtime? - Lou Vickery

We strive for perfection, and we settle for excellence. - Lou Vickery

I'm a super believer in being a believer. - Lou Vickery
