Annie P. Ruggles teaches business owners how to sell. For over a decade, Annie has harnessed her Hulk-like disdain for hard-sales, tacky self-promotion, and overly competitive sleazeballs as inspiration to help people find better ways to grow their small business. She’s guided hundreds of people toward making deeper connections, lasting impressions, and friendlier, more lucrative transactions and conversations.
Annie is the daughter of an award-winning motivational speaker and an always-ahead-of-his-time business strategist, and the granddaughter of a legendary used-car salesman, a perspicacious wordsmith, a singing waiter, and a cafeteria caterer with a raving fan base. (So clearly, she was literally born for this.)
She lives in Chicago with her hobbit husband (who is also in sales), her furkids, and her disdain for deep dish pizza.
