Nancy West was born selling.

In first grade, after growing tired of her classmates constantly asking to “borrow” a pencil, she started renting them for a nickel a day. She proudly secured her “inventory” in Crown Royal’s signature velvet bag and jingled her earnings in her lunch box on the school bus every day.

Encouraged by her parents to embrace her entrepreneurial spirit, Nancy went on to complete her undergraduate and graduate studies at night, earning high honors, at the same time establishing herself as one of the top female sales representatives in the transportation industry.

After recovering from a layoff, Nancy found herself thriving in sales in the corporate training industry. Inspired to blend her sales savvy with her newly discovered talent for facilitating and coaching, Nancy went on to build her own consultancy, Accelerated Performance, Inc. Today she works with many of the biggest brands in the automotive industry, training salespeople in car showrooms from coast to coast.

Equal to her passion for cars, is her love of guiding the youngest generation entering the workforce. In this, her first book, she transforms the most difficult lessons from her own life into stories that encourage the release of self-limiting beliefs and promote action.

Originally from Ohio, Nancy has called several suburbs of Detroit home for over 20 years and now resides in beautiful Bloomfield Hills, MI. When she isn’t on the road, she can be found indulging her passion for home remodeling, cooking, and gardening.
