Business Bio:

I am on a mission to squash the mediocrity and fear that runs rampant in small businesses. A writer, consultant, and speaker, I bring real-life lessons to leaders and sales teams who are tired of hearing “can’t” and are ready to stop letting others dictate the boundaries of their success.  When I sit down with a business owner or deliver marketing and leadership seminars/keynotes, we won’t be talking theory. I have lived the perils & successes of a small business – nearly going bankrupt 5 times, building multimillion-dollar equity positions, and winning 30+ awards for creative marketing campaigns.  As a consultant for many organizations, I provide motivation, marketing and sales strategies to elevate brand perception for more than 700+ affiliate businesses and hundreds of sales and marketing professionals.  If you are a business owner in any industry looking to exponentially grow your business, Cliff can help.  As an international speaker, my real-world approach and infectious passion for challenging the status quo, gets small businesses and franchise organizations back on the road to achieving their potential.   If you are interested in bringing me to speak, email or call 301-717-0615 #quicksellspeaks
