William J. Truax
Bill’s focus is on Goal Achievement since setting Goals is relatively easy, Achieving them is not!
Bill helps people achieve their Goals whether they are seeking more customers, a personal passion, or goals as a member of a Project, Sales, or Management team. He has developed a 5-step program for Goal Achievement called It's Just a Skill®.
Bill is President of TRUFIELD ENTERPRISES, Inc. a firm specializing in Goal Achievement programs for Project, Sales, and Management teams as well as individuals. Along with meeting presentations and workshop facilitation, Bill is involved in Consulting and Field Implementation.

Bill has spent literally thousands of hours in the field making cold calls with sales professionals to teach his BLITZ CALL System.
