Carol Costello has made her living as a freelance writer for forty years. She has worked as an investigative reporter in Chicago, a freelance acquisitions and developmental editor, a ghostwriter or book doctor of some 30 books (including two national best sellers), and has published under her own name The Soul of Selling and Chasing Grace: A Novel of Odd Redemption.
CHASING GRACE follows ten year old runaway Cathy Callahan's quest for healing and the divine over thirty years of her life. It is a raw, humorous look at spiritual coming of age, at unconventional ways to heal deep emotional wounds, and at finding grace and greater purpose in surprising places despite desperate odds.
Carol developed the Soul of Selling sales method to bring more ease, meaning, and enjoyment to the extraordinary results she produced as Sales Director for three vital start-up companies over her 30-year career.
Her message is that you can get exactly the results you want, and at the same time honor, respect, and appreciate everyone with whom you speak. You can sell with a higher purpose, based on your own personal values—and still get the numbers you need to succeed. She focuses on the honor and joy of selling, and on how to have fun and make money while becoming the person you've always wanted to be. www.soulofselling.com.
Carol is a student of meditation and the Vedanta, and a hiker. She lives across the street from the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco and speaks around the country on selling as service, creativity, and self publishing. M.A. University of Michigan.
