SIDELIGHTS: Terry L. Mayfield told CA: "Through the help and influence of many others I have achieved success in sales and business. My goal is to continue the favor and help others succeed. I struggled early in sales until I attended a seminar by Joel Weldon. I bought his audiotapes, which included a tape by Earl Nightingale titled The Strangest Secret. My life changed. I began reading books, buying audiotapes, and going to seminars. Eventually I was asked to share my experience with other sales people. After joining Toastmasters International I recognized an ability to speak to people in a way that gave them a new insight. My purpose now is to help people realize the most from their talents in their job and life."
