Selling for twelve years at the kitchen table, MJ Durkin built one of the most profitable and record breaking water treatment dealerships in the country. It was here that he refined his strategies on prospecting. After selling his ten year old service business for $250,000, he started cold calling on corporations and small businesses to build a speaking and sales training business.
In 2005 after successfully training many Fortune 1000 companies, MJ Durkin was approached by several top distributors in a well known Network-Marketing company. Impressed with his emphasis and strong message on prospecting, they encouraged him to write a book for their industry.

To date, over 82,000 copies of the book have been sold.
