COMING SOON! B.U.D. Better, Unique, & Desirable

Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure of working with Thomas Ellis. Thomas is considered by many to be a subject matter expert (SME) in coaching and developing business-to-business sales professionals. Thomas is highly regarded as the Expert “Sales 101” Trainer. His book, B.U.D. Better, Unique, & Desirable: The Sales Process That Gets Results, offers a sales philosophy that can positively impact sales and set sales professionals up for success.

The B.U.D. factor represents the characteristics one needs to embody in order to serve the customer and ultimately close more sales. This book examines the B.U.D. factor as it relates to each part of the sales process. Here are some advanced reviews!


“Fabulous book for those of us that have had a career in sales as well as for those just starting out. Thomas is the ultimate ‘Sales 101’ teacher! His B.U.D. (Better, Unique & Desirable) technique is applicable to every step of the sales process and to all sales situations. His writing style is easy and relatable. This book is a ‘basics’ reminder for experienced sales professionals and a terrific guide for beginners. I highly recommend this book! Easy read and very informational!”

B.U.D. Better, Unique, & Desirable: The Sales Process That Gets Results explores several counterintuitive routes to sales success, but it starts with the most important skill of all: preparation. If we want to impress others—with our ideas, our products, our services, or even ourselves—we have to conduct research and understand to whom we are talking. And if you listen to Thomas Ellis, you’ll learn the attitudes and abilities required to master the new world of sales.”

“There are few books on sales and sales process that inspire a vetted sales veteran to take notes and highlight key themes throughout the book for themselves and their clients; however, that is exactly what I found myself doing as I read, B.U.D. Better, Unique, & Desirable: The Sales Process That Gets Results. Thomas does an incredible job of simplifying the process and providing bite-sized nuggets for the reader to consume, then apply to make themselves a B.U.D. sales professional. Whether you are new to sales or leading a multi-national team, this is the new roadmap to winning in sales!”
