AWARD-WINNING SALES GURU SAYS WORDS EQUAL WEALTH
Kinja Dixon is an award-winning sales expert, motivational speaker, and life coach. He is the only person to win both the prestigious Gold Stevie Award and American Resort Development Association Award (ARDA) for Top In-House Salesperson in the same year (2013).
“Every person who has attained wealth, regardless of how, had to speak to someone,” Dixon says. “Whether your aspiration is to start a company, acquire a promotion, or seal a multimillion dollar deal, it’s skillful communication that will set you apart from the crowd.”
In his new book, Universal Talk Laws: How to Increase Your Net Worth With Words, Dixon explores his experience coming from humble beginnings, the power of persuasion, the art and science of verbal communication – both personally and professionally, how to talk to yourself in a way that creates opportunity, and going out on top.
In a powerful interview, Dixon can discuss why he left a job earning more than $600,000 a year and what it’s like to retire at age 34, as well as:
- Why communication skills are the heart of any organization
- Recognizing opportunity personally and professionally
- What Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet, and Bill Gates have in common
- Replacing bad habits with positive decision making and goals
- Increasing self-discipline, productivity, and relationship satisfaction
- The importance of self-reliance in sales positions and in life
“There’s a reason we say some of the most influential people have ‘a way with words,’” Dixon continues. “There is an art to communication that can open doors and break down walls. Luckily, communication skills can be learned and called on in almost any environment.”
Kinja Dixon is an internationally award-winning sales management expert, motivational speaker, and former member of the U.S. Air Force. Dixon spent more than nine years at Wyndham Vacation Ownership, witnessing the historic restructure of Wyndham Worldwide from March 2009 to 2012. In 2013, Dixon won both the Gold Stevie Award and American Resort Development Association Award (ARDA) for Top In-House Salesperson, making him one of the most accomplished salespeople alive today. He is the only person to win both international awards in the same year. Dixon retired in 2013 at the age of 34.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFultonStreet, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxFultonStreet event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
