What makes me different:
A high school dropout, I was convinced that I was a lazy and stupid neanderthal. I found myself digging trenches and getting shot at for a living. To this day, I have no idea what Captain Bishop saw in me, but I was able to shine as a marksman for the Canadian Military.
In my formative years, I was raised by a pack of serial entrepreneurs in the gulags of retail. With a GED secured, I took the slow road to earning a University degree with honors in business.
Escaping my local bastille, I traveled the globe, becoming the #1 top-ranked Sales Trainer in the world for the auto industry (for this, I provide photographic evidence).
For a short time, they even elevated my humble status to Warden of Australasia, where I created much mischief (and even more wealth 😉).
Having recently been domesticated, I currently own a multi-million dollar custom home building company with my strikingly talented bride.
Alas, like a moth to a porch light, the brilliance of the Wizard of Ads® siren call was too irresistible for me to resist.
In life, I believe one must stay busy doing what has them eager to get out of bed each day, even if it’s a ridiculously, ridiculously, ridiculously comfortable bed.
I’ve explored the darkest anatomy of the human condition, and I believe what I’ve learned could be quite helpful in a pinch for those pure of heart, looking to make their fortunes as I have.
Heaven forbid these secrets fall into the hands of rapscallions, skullduggerers, or evil-doers.
This lifetime investment to the mastery of sales, persuasion, influence, and communication has earned me the title of Wizard of Sales®.

What I Do For Clients:
Did you know we’ve been cooking up the recipe for making your brand a household name for over 40 years now?
Some of the ingredients have changed a bit, but the results are just as delicious.
Here’s the secret recipe:
We start with a sweet sweet bag of Marketing Strategy.
Add in a savory story.
Then we help you put up signposts to let people who love your story find you when they are ready to buy your stuff.
Finally, we feed your story to as many people as we can afford to reach, over and over again, until they only want you and your story.
And if that’s all you need to become wildly successful, we’re done.
Give me a call and I’ll build you the best damn team of marketing strategists, media buyers, and copywriters you could imagine.
I have a question though…
Are you doing something different that is WORTH telling people about?
Something that would get them excited to choose YOU over the others in the zoo? 🤔
Do you know where the greatest advertising comes from?
Sadly, the truth is, most retailers and residential home service companies aren’t doing anything interesting, different, or special.
Sure, you have convenient parking and store hours, knowledgeable and courteous staff, good customer service and selection…but isn’t that what all your competitors are saying too?
Good companies can increase revenues.
🎈 Show up to the appointment.
🎈 Raise your prices.
🎈 Don’t be a weirdo.
But you hit a ceiling. Maybe now. Maybe later. But eventually.
When you’re stuck trying to figure out how to stand out in a sea of sameness,
You need to find that one special thing that you are willing to do that NOBODY else would immediately say, “ME TOO”!
I can help you find that special nugget and implement it.
The thing is, it’s your people that are going to make the difference.
Be the difference, really.
So I developed a Selling System to help you go from good to GREAT!
When you help your people in a trustworthy and grateful manner, THEY will build your legacy.
I believe that when you build, protect, and defend a happy, healthy, wealthy culture that you have set yourself up for success.
And that gives you options. The freedom of choice.
So I take all your preferred best practices.
All of your favorite sales processes. scripts, products and services…
All of the policies and processes that help people win in a trustworthy and grateful manner…
And build your C.O.R.E. Playbook with you.
Teaching you how to implement, protect, and defend it along the way.
I’m the only one in the partner group that does this, and that’s why you want me.
If you are a retailer or a residential home service company jonesing to become a household name, give me a call.
What Works Best!
💥 Our marketing strategy is created around authenticity. We work for businesses that deliver a great buying experience. If you go out of your way to serve your customers (and employees), we will help you take over the WORLD!
💥 Wizard of Ads Partners work best when there is a single decision-maker. We have seen the atrocities that committees commit when given the freedom to “help” our clients vet ideas. We love input, but only if they have all the information upfront to understand our crazy ideas and strategic solutions.
💥 Our primary objective is to increase your revenue by obscene amounts. This means we have to get you noticed, remembered, and inspire ACTION when your customers need what you sell. Sometimes what we recommend seems bizarre (or counterintuitive) to you, and this is the leap of faith we are asking you to take.
💥 You need to be ready to make an investment in your business. We know that switching from a lead generation strategy to a blended lead gen/branding strategy can be intimidating, but it’s the only way to break past the GroundHog Day cycle that a lead gen strategy offers.
Branding is a long-game game changer that requires an investment of time, money, and energy to do right.
Anything less than World-Class is not good enough for my clients. Period.

Does anyone like talking about themselves? I always feel like an insufferable douchebag when I’m called upon to pontificate about myself. The only way it could be worse is if I spoke in the third person. #gross
