Elinor Stutz broke through barriers long before doing so was popular. Against all odds she defied the theme, “women can’t sell” to become the top producer at every company she ever worked all the while ignoring attempts to get her to quit.
While on a stretcher with a broken neck predicted to be irreparable, Elinor saw two visions come to her. The first presented a report card showing it was her duty to begin empowering communities, and the second showed she was to become a worldwide speaker. She vowed with all her heart that she would rise to the occasion. But being the sales pro, she negotiated the outcome of healing 100%. The entire medical staff came to her recovery room to meet and exclaim her as “a walking miracle”.
Stutz’ motto became, “Believe, Become, Empower.”
Moving full steam ahead six months later, she created Smooth Sale. The idea was to teach teams how to create a returning and referring clientele. Once again, people laughed thinking a woman could not know enough about sales to train.
Elinor’s next steps to include ignoring all negativity:
• Her first book, Nice Girls DO Get the Sale: Relationship Building that Gets Results, is an International Best-Seller featured in TIME Magazine and on CBS-TV news
• HIRED! Her second book was put into the hands of President and First Lady Michelle Obama for which she has personal handwritten thank you notes.
• The Smooth Sale blog enjoys wide distribution among corporations, entrepreneurs and media. Bizzhum and NowISeeIt both named the Smooth Sale Blog as one of the "Top 100 Most Innovative Sales Bloggers."
• A Top 1% Influencer proclaimed by Kred.com
Returning to her commitment to the visions of “Believe, Become, Empower” her work has manifested into many types of training programs, speaking events and teaching audiences how to achieve similar results. She is a world-class speaker and CEO World Magazine named Elinor as one of "The brightests sales minds to follow on Twitter @smoothsale.
