  • "I had the pleasure of meeting and hearing Don speak over 25 years ago. He’s one of the greatest motivating and inspiring speakers in our industry. We invited Don to be our Keynote Speaker for our Regional Meeting in St. Louis. He was outstanding!!! Results from our rep survey say: - Best session of the whole meeting. So many important take-aways! - The best motivator yet. Please have him at the national conference! - Don made me seriously reconsider how I approached my business. I need to ask myself some hard questions.”

I don't think any previous speaker has ever had as many laugh or applause points as you did. You were a tremendous motivator for me, early in my career. You kept me going when times were tough.

Even though I have been at Merrill Lynch for over 23 years, a multimillion dollar producer, and have been recognized by many publications, including Barrons as one of the Top Financial Advisors in the country, your fresh ideas are invaluable. I especially enjoy the AskDon option. This gives me the ability to converse with you directly, and makes me feel like you are part of my team.
