Focus on what is important.
My mom always used to say, “No Matter the Question, Love is the Answer.”

My mom didn’t just repeat the saying, she embodied it. Among other things, she encouraged me to draw – something I did tirelessly. I used to love to draw trees. Not just “sort of” draw trees–I used to draw every branch, every leaf and detail.

Later on, I saw how the other children drew trees: a simple trunk drawn with two lines and a poofy cloud to represent the leaves – something that could be drawn in a few seconds.

Somehow, after seeing the other children draw trees, I decided that the detailed trees I drew weren’t good enough. I stopped drawing the detailed trees that I used to and started to draw trees like the other children.

I found out later that when my mother saw this, she cried.

Fast forward a few years: I was eight-years-old. After attending one of my Little League games, my mother suddenly had a very severe headache. She complained that it was “worse than childbirth.”

“I love you,” I said to my mom just before my father took her to the hospital. I remember praying so hard that God would spare my mother’s life. However, two days later, I watched as my mother, who had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, was taken off life support.

Why did my mom die? I have asked this question many times. Could it truly be that my mom was right? That no matter the question, love really is the answer?

My mom’s influence, even though she passed away decades ago, is stronger now.

I know a lot about sales. A lot. I have been featured on Forbes, TV, various business blogs, and podcasts. I know how to train salespeople and I will continue to share my knowledge on that subject. But I also know a lot about how little choices make all the difference, and I’m starting to see how love really is the answer to everything. Perhaps only sharing sales knowledge is like only drawing trees the way the other children did. I need to share more. I am going to share important things, and draw trees, the way I see them.

Thank you mom.

You have pain
Life is tough – tougher than you sometimes want to admit. You have a choice–buckle under the pressure or let the pain make you strong. Tough experiences can make you weaker or stronger. If you want your life to really work- then get ready for some pain. March right in. The good news–facing discomfort head-on is less painful in the long run than trying to avoid it.

You need to see it like it is
Principles are real. They work – in life, in business, in relationships – everywhere. If you don’t believe in gravity, it doesn’t mean gravity goes away. Like gravity, principles don’t go away just because you don’t believe in them or aren’t aware of them. Base your life, business, and relationships on true principles not on the latest philosophical fad.

Your choices count
Every second of every day, you are choosing. Even a choice not to choose is still a choice. It is the little tiny choices that are going to take you where you need to go or not. Don’t worry about the big stuff. If you take care of the small stuff, the big stuff will take care of itself. The little choices are the big choices.

Kudos for EksAyn’s speaking, training, and book.
  • Skilled Trainer

    “I’ve worked closely with EksAyn and know from firsthand experience that his communication and training skills are among the best available.  I specifically remember EksAyn being offered a job from a national retail customer immediately following a training session that he conducted with that customer’s employees.  That speaks volumes about his ability to deliver a message with impact.” ~ Tracy Fischio

  • Bold and Authentic

    “I have witnessed EksAyn Anderson first hand deliver a poignant delivery to a target audience to stop throwing away money in rent and buy a home! He went to the masses, door to door (literally) and invited renters to come and hear his message about buying a home!  He converted them at their door and then solidified the message at our seminars! He is truly an impeccable public speaker with the ability to convince, open up, and energize an audience like few I have seen before!  EksAyn Anderson has the skill set to have an audience see what can be attained and gets them there in a few minutes!” ~ Matthew C Walbruch

  • Unique Perspective

    The Key to the Gate book

    "This book has the principles that everyone in sales should be following. EksAyn does a great job at using real life stores and examples to share with the reader a different approach to selling. This is not your typical sales book. Great info a must read." ~ Ilene Barton

  • Likable and Principled

    The Key to the Gate book

    "I was actually fortunate enough to read an advance copy of this book and am so glad I did because the ideas have stayed with me for months--and helped me negotiate a local exception to a long standing school board policy on behalf of my daughter. I've been watching for the printed version because I'm eager to have several friends and family members read this book. So glad this is available now! It's an easy read...just and hour or two, but it will save you hours of headaches if you can apply the strategies. The tone is conversational, not condescending or complicated, like you're sitting down with an old sales pro who's actually likable and ethical. I especially like the chapter on "Jijitsu email." This would be a fabulous gift for employees or friends in any sales related business." ~ Joy L

You want more sales. You need someone to inspire, motivate, and train your sales force. The question is: are you ready?


By: EksAyn Anderson


Anyone can approach an organization; not everyone can get in. The first step in business-to-business sales is getting in the door. It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest product or the most dynamic presentation if you can’t get in front of the decision maker. That decision maker is often highly guarded by a savvy gatekeeper who screens out sales calls–leaving even talented, experienced salespeople frustrated by their inability to get access to the right people…
