About Ira Levofsky

Who is Ira D. Levofsky?

He is one that believes that even though his message often third person, delivered with a heavy measure of whit, often politically incorrect and occasionally carrying a sense of artistic vulgarity carries an important message.

The message that there are leaders in all walks of life who are not out enduring the heat of day, dodging the torrents of rain nor shivering from the cold while the sun sets on their assigned task. They cannot and often have never had the experience, the adrenaline driven thirst for success with each and every labor that envelopes your being, yet they lead.

Though the modern day term may be Arm Chair Quarterback, the definition holds true throughout time and testament. By right of birth, serendipitous luck or earning the grade then forgetting the roots of the journey which brought them there, many sit upon their high perch directing those who will toil in their names.

Their purpose, stature and often their very existence is based on your effort, your courage and your individual success at everything you do.

This, my new friend, is a fact of life.

The formidable challenge which I put before you in my written works as I have placed before myself daily in life is to succeed and lead in life itself, by example, deed and word.

Sleep well in the fact that you have done the right thing, set the right example and completed the task at hand to the best of your ability satisfying your own expectations every day.

If others shine due to your success or avoid one of life’s many pitfalls due to the lessons learned from your experience, then you are truly blessed.

This is how I live and the true description of one Ira D. Levofsky which I put in place as my profile for purposes of this quick introduction.

This book is both very good and very funny. It reminds me of a lot of things that seem to have been lost in the age of emails and tweets,"People do still buy from people and they have to buy you first". Ira you are an Old School Dinosaur of the first degree and I appreciate you time and effort to share your experiences with us other old farts. P.S. Where is that rep with the Big Tits??

It was a pleasure working with Ira on this project. Even as a seasoned sales pro, I found useful insight and reminders of stuff long forgotten. This is a refreshing change from the "same old same old" dry, boring, tedious sales manuals I've plowed through over the years. I won't wish Ira good luck because we sales guys make our own luck. As a great sales manager once said, "The harder I work, the luckier I get." - Mike Swedenberg
