More Marketing Time
Raised by a single mother who sold Mary Kay cosmetics, RoryÂ grew up around women who taught him the principles of success. Rory says itÂ also means he knows more about makeup than cars.
DuringÂ college at the University of Denver, Rory was recruited to work in a program called Southwestern Advantage, where he sold educational children's reference books door-to-doorÂ and eventually managed salespeople. He says that'sÂ where heÂ developed a passion for sales.
In 2006, Rory and three othersÂ started Southwestern Consulting, withÂ the mission to help salespeople achieve their goals in life. They now haveÂ 115 team members and are working with more than 1,000 people.
Rory'sÂ first book, Take the Stairs, isÂ all about the psychology of overcoming procrastination, improving self-discipline and getting yourself to do things you know you should do that you don't feel like doing. ItÂ answers the question, "How do the most disciplined people in the world get themselves to be disciplined?"
Rory'sÂ second book, Procrastinating on Purpose, addresses the question, "How do the most successful people today think about time and do they believe the same clichÃ©s we often hear about time management?" Rory says a lot of them don't.
