    I was blessed to meet Toula. Shes taught me many important selling techniques, but what I value most is how she taught me to build relationships with clients, break the barrier of shyness and gain a valuable friendship with each client resulting in phenomenal sales!!!

    Toula will bring the energy you never thought existed in your store! She shows you a fearless approach and how to turn those JUST LOOKERS into FABULOUS CUSTOMERS! After she leaves your store you know anything is possible and you feel free to approach anyone. She will touch anyones heart and your cash register a lot! Watch those sales grow!!!
    Julie Mantas
    District Manager

    My experience with Personalized Sales Seminars, in particular, with Toula, has been magnificent. I have worked on the sales floor, ran the sales floor, sold on the sales floor, and recruited all over with Toula for more than 17 years and will continue to do so forever. Toula is the one person, in all of my experience who truly walks the talk. She knows how to sell and develop clientele for a store better than anyone. She consistently triples a stores sales upon every training. Toula's reputation supersedes her in the industry for being aggressive and having unparalled results wherever she goes. Our stores beg for Toula to come and train! We use her training manuals and DVD for all new hires. When I need to hire a great manager or salesperson anywhere in the country, I call Toula. She recruits in person and provides immediate results. She is sharp, extremely talented, has incredible integrity, and I love her!

    Through positive energy and an acute analysis of the consumer profile Toula has helped over and over all our sales associates to maximize their sales. We find her teaching "contagious” in the sense that everybody will start to perform better immediately. Toula is able to impact positively from starting positions to upper management and ownership.

    Testimonial
    I want to tell everyone what a blessing Personalized Sales Seminars has been over the years. Toula has worked with my company now for over 15 years, and her consistency and passion has never wavered. I can truly say I would not be where I am at today without her assistance. She has taught us the passion of selling and the value of a great store manager. All my best people have trained with her and all will testify that she has made an incredible long lasting impression on their skill and growth. If I ever have a problem in a store or if sales start to slide she is the first person I call to come to my assistance.
