About the Author:


The Builder of Sales Champions

And Master in the Art of Professional Selling

Tom Hopkins carries the standard as a master sales trainer and is recognized as the world’s leading authority on selling techniques and salesmanship.

Over 3,000,000 people on five continents have attended Tom’s high-energy live seminars. Tom personally conducts 75 seminars each year traveling throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Tom Hopkins is a distinguished charter member of the National Speakers Association and was among the first to receive its prestigious Council of Peers Award for Excellence. Tom’s talent of teaching in a creative and entertaining style has brought him a tremendous following, as well as constant demand for appearances at regional and national conventions each year.

Tom Hopkins has been the subject of countless articles in publications such as U.S. News and World Report, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Personal Selling Power, People magazine, Selling magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, and The Washington Post.

One of America’s most successful and dynamic businessmen, Tom Hopkins did not find success easily. Born in Burbank, California, Tom quit college after only three months. At 19 years of age, married and with a baby on the way, he took a job in construction. It wasn’t too long before Tom decided that this was not the way he wanted to spend the rest of his life, so he quit the construction job and took a job he thought would be easier – selling real estate.

Six months into his real estate career, Tom’s income was just $42 a month. Tom realized at this point that he wasn’t making money in sales because he didn’t know how to sell. After discovering that all the top producers in sales had extensive sales training, Tom set out to learn everything he could about professional selling methods.

Armed with drive, determination and knowledge, Tom Hopkins built his sales volume to over $14,000,000 within five years.

In 1976, Tom founded Tom Hopkins International, Inc., and dedicated his life and his company to teaching and inspiring others through his seminars, books, audio and video training programs. Today, over 35,000 corporations and millions of professional salespeople through the world utilize his professional sales training materials.


"I invested in The Official Guide to Success when I was starting a business and was scared to death most of the time. Mr. Hopkins' excellent suggestions for enthusiasm, time management and motivation really helped me through the tough times. I recommend it to anyone who is trying to make their personal or business life more successful."

The Best "Guide to Success" Book I Have Read

I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book. I read a lot of "success" books and this is the best one I have read. Some of these books provide vague principles that are nebulous at best, but Hopkins mixes ideals with practical advice, like list the 6 most important things to do the next day the night before.

Most books are "what" to do to succeed. This one is not just "what," but HOW. He has very specific, unobtrusive steps.

Along the lines of Tony Robbins, he discusses bad habits, why we do them, and how to replace them with a better habit. Unlike Robbins, he doesn't treat replacing your thoughts with more constructive ones as some sort of new "technology." It is simply something you do.

Some books cover some realms of life, like business. He covers all realms, having for instance a section on dealing with angry people. The book is sort of a "Dummies" guide to life in general.

It is short, and easy to read, and it would be a good gift for a success-minded person or one who is at such a turning-point in life where they need new strategies. I guess that is it--he gives specific, simple, strategies. You will likely find some chapters to be fluff, and others life-changing, so of course the life-changing ones are worth reading the book.

A FANTASTIC book on success!"

I first read this book over 3 years ago and it has helped change my life for the better. I am now well on the way to achieveing things 5 years ago I thought impossible. Thank you Tom.
~Mark Llewhelin

The most useful book out there!!

Bottom line, Hopkins was my first exposure to something called Goal Setting. (Yikes! almost 25 years ago) His book is concise and loaded with short rapid-fire comments and quick read chapters. Above all else...he gives REAL workable tools for REAL workable lives.
