Colette learned her message the hard way. She started out a big liar. Literally!

Working for sales legend Tom Hopkins, she quickly ascended to become the #1 producer. Colette's immediate success led to an opportunity to join sales guru Brian Tracy's team, and shortly thereafter she became a National Sales Trainer for US West.

Laugh and learn with Colette as you step in the Truth Booth and receive the tools to create positive, long-lasting change.
