Joe Girard is in the Guinness Book of Records as the World's Greatest Retail Salesman. His record for car sales will likely never be broken.
I saw Joe speak in Ottawa, Ontario about 26 years ago. I will always remember him having us shout "I'm Happy, I'm Healthy, I am Terrific".
I am blessed to have interviewed Joe for my Journey To Success Radio show in his last radio interview at the age of 89.
Joe sold 13,001 cars at a Chevrolet dealership between 1963 and 1978. In 2001 he was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame.
The average car salesman sells about 180-200 cars annually.
Joe went on to become one of America’s most sought after speakers and the author of 4 phenomenal books on selling. I saw Joe speak in Ottawa, Ontario around 1987 and I will always remember it.
Joe’s personal records are legendary and include:
