When Annie P. Ruggles was in the thick of it with the Non-Sleazy Sales Academy she started to feel herself being boxed into a niche of business that she loves, doing marketing funneling, brand awareness campaigns, a little bit of loverage (person-to-person relationship marketing).
Annie started to feel like she was mislabeling herself because she wanted to reach an audience beyond just marketing, while keeping her bubble of Non-Sleazy Sales Academy for people that needed the help.
Light bulb! 💡Quirk Works was born, as a parent company to Non-Sleazy Sales Academy. This allowed Annie to work Non-Sleazy Sales Academy as the sales arm of Quirk Works while being granted the spaciousness to grow and nurture new ideas!
For over a decade, Annie P. Ruggles has harnessed her Hulk-like disdain for hard-sales, tacky self-promotion, and overly competitive sleazeballs as inspiration to help people find better ways to grow their small businesses. As Founder of The Non-Sleazy Sales Academy & Quirk Works Consulting, she’s guided hundreds of people toward making deeper connections, lasting impressions, and friendlier, more lucrative transactions and conversations.
