Hope Realized Book Honored as Silver Stevie® Award Winner in 2021 American Business Awards®

ABA21 Silver Winner

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – April 30, 2021 – Sales Xceleration was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Best Business Book category. Hope Realized: Finding the Path to Sales Success was written by Mark Thacker, Co-Founder of Sales Xceleration.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best Business Book, Virtual Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.

Hope Realized presents the story of a business owner named Steve whose once thriving company stands at the brink of failure; and “how a cup of coffee and a conversation” with a sales management consultant named Vance begins a journey of discovery that promises to rescue not only Steve’s business, but benefit his family life as well. One judge commented, “Unique approach to sometimes bland sales advice makes this a great read. It is a human and relatable way to get across key sales management and leadership fundamentals.”

“The American economy continues to show its resilience, and as we’re poised on the beginning of what should be a phenomenal period of growth, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of a wide range of organizations and people over the past 18 months,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations in The American Business Awards are testament to the ingenuity, the commitment, the passion, the adaptability, and the creativity of the American people.  We look forward to celebrating this year’s winners during our virtual ceremony on June 30.”
