Reading The RiVal brought a smile to my face because it reminded me of the experiences Ben and I had together. The RiVal is a great guidebook for the new generation of businessmen and women that want to lead the revenues of our newest companies being built. Succeeding in business is not just hard work, you have to have the right foundation. Each experience that Ben recites in The RiVal is derived from his own successful foundation.
Having the right ethical behavior, as Ben highlights in The RiVal time and time again, is what will allow you to last in the industry for as long as he has. The professionals that work alongside us in the industry and don’t follow the gentlemen’s code nor have winning attitudes are never the leaders! My hope is that the individuals readingThe RiVal, listening to Ben’s lectures and those lucky enough to have been mentored by him follow a path to success that is paved with integrity and loyalty.

The RiVal is the X factor revealed. Anyone wanting to solve the mystery of long-term success in sales and the art of deal-closing should read and apply the techniques outlined in The RiVal. While its instruction is practical, universal and seemingly easy to execute, it is illusive to many who get locked into dead-end details. It’s a textbook for what isn’t textbook: integrity, talent, tenure, tenacity and success.
