Daniel Milstein Releases STREET SMART SELLINGDaniel Milstein Releases STREET SMART SELLING
by BWW News Desk - Nov 10, 2014

Street Smart Selling, the third book by Best-Selling Author and founding CEO of Gold Star Mortgage, Daniel Milstein, has been selected the 2014 first place winner in the 'Business' category of the annual LA Halloween Book Festival. Milstein adds this prestigious award to numerous accolades he has received in recognition of The ABC of Sales: Lessons from a Superstar, and 17 Cents and a Dream: My Incredible Journey from the USSR to Living the American Dream, his first two books published in 2011 and 2013 respectively. Selling 10,000 copies during its release in March 2012, becoming the #1 Sales Book on Amazon and 31st Top Seller of All eBook Sales, The ABC of Sales clearly resonated with motivated salespeople hungry for insight and inspiration from an entrepreneur who took the mortgage lending industry by storm, becoming the #1 Loan Officer in the nation. Milstein's second book 17 Cents and a Dream, receiving extraordinary acclaim and selling 42,000 copies during its first month in print, is the emotionally-gripping memoir of his family's courageous escape to America from poverty and persecution in the U.S.S.R., and gives us insight into what propels Milstein's fierce and tireless determination to succeed. During its first week of sales, 17 Cents and a Dream immediately inspired a broad audience, ranking No. 1 on Amazon's list of the best-selling eBooks in the Business and Entrepreneurship category, No. 2 in Business and Investing and in the top 30 in the Biography and Memoir category. Released in July 2014, and off to a blazing start, Street Smart Selling is Milstein's return to his true calling for helping others grow their sales success. Greatly expanding upon The ABC of Sales, Street Smart Selling creates a detailed game plan for achieving goal shattering results for those willing to roll up their sleeves and learn from an icon. His highly readable format is laced with salient Pro Tips, organizational strategies and personal anecdotes that together provide a usable, common-sense blueprint enabling sales professionals in every industry to harness their passion and become sales superstars. About Daniel Milstein Forced to escape the persecution and poverty rampant in the shadow of the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster, Daniel Milstein's family fled the USSR for a new start in Ann Arbor, Michigan. From mopping floors in a McDonald's restaurant to creating and leading one of the fastest growing, premier mortgage companies in the nation, Daniel Milstein's courage in the face of adversity and iron will brought the American Dream to life. Successful entrepreneur, author, business developer and mentor, Daniel Milstein is founder and CEO of Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group, an Inc. 500 Company originating billions in home loans across the United States. Under his leadership, Gold Star has been named a Top Workplace in Michigan by the Detroit Free Press, and a Michigan Economic Bright Spot by Corp! Magazine. Milstein has been ranked the #1 Loan Officer in the United States out of more than 550,000 professionals in the lending industry. He has been included in the prestigious '40 Under 40' in Crain's magazine, '30 in Their Thirties' in DBusiness magazine, and has been named one of the nation's 40 Top Finance Professionals by National Mortgage Professional magazine. Graduating with honors from Cleary University, Milstein was later awarded an honorary doctorate from his Alma Mater. He is currently in his second term on the Cleary University Board of Trustees.
