As a child, Leahy watched his father travel from New Jersey to New York City to sell janitorial supplies. One day, he asked to go along for the ride. As they drove past Rockefeller Center, Leahy noticed a bunch of street vendors selling everything from hot dogs to fine art. He was invigorated by the smells and sounds of the city, but he was enamored by the raw excitement of selling on the street. Leahy was hooked and he wanted to be a street vendor too.

At eighteen years old, he tried his hand at selling cheap gold plated jewelry and blank cassette tapes. Although he failed miserably, he had plenty of time to stand back and watch the vendors who were cashing in. He started taking notes on what the successful salespeople were doing and what he wasn’t. Later on, he became a very successful salesman as well.

Leahy has worked alongside hundreds of salespeople and managed hundreds of others. He continued keeping notes and now has thousands of ideas spanning close to three decades. By 2008, he began sharing his notebook one Sales Shot at a time, by e-mailing it to thousands of salespeople and managers every week. Its global popularity continues to grow due to its easy-to-read and hard-hitting approach.

Now in book form, THE SALES SHOT is a quick, concise, and impactful advice book for those who want to become a selling superstar. It will tell readers how the average salesperson handles a situation and what the star does differently. No matter how readers use this book, it will help them to sell more and make more money!
