When Laura was 14 years old, her father was trapped under a mud slide while prospecting in a nearby river and died. Laura was forced to move to Chicago in the care of her rich Uncle Joe. Laura hated Uncle Joe because he forced her to leave the river, but also because he had left the family prospecting business to move to Chicago years before she was born.

Laura discovers that Uncle Joe made his fortune selling insurance and was the owner of the largest insurance company in Illinois. While wondering through the mansion one day, she found Uncle’s Joe personal den. In it, she discovered an entire new life that would lead her to heights that she would never had realized panning for gold in Alaska. Uncle Joe used the 6 gold prospecting rules for safety to prospect new clients for his insurance company and in doing so, discovered the secrets to wealth in selling.

REVIEW: (written by Anne Benard)
I enjoyed the unique approach the author chose to explain his sale principles. Having worked in the industry, I`ve heard my fair share of inspirational rag to riches stories and many come across as a bit too preachy. This fictional story of feisty Laura Jewel Dunagan grabbed my attention from the start since the story is engaging and well written. You just can`t help but find yourself rooting for Laura as she struggles to figure out how she can reach her potential and fulfill her goals.
The author’s philosophies of what makes a successful salesperson are well explained while the reader is entertained. If you need a bit of motivation in sales or even in life, take the time to read this book.
