Solomon Hicks’ road to becoming a life and qualifying member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) for 32 years, a 23-time Court of the Table (COT) qualifier, and a 20-time Top of the Table (TOT) qualifier was not easy… In fact, it was riddled with challenge after challenge.
BUILD recently kicked off its BUILDing Blocks Webinar Series featuring Sol and his lifelong journey of “Overcoming Obstacles.”
This too-good-to-miss inspirational session is now available here!
Global Services Financial Advisor and Coach
Sol was this year’s Diamond Award winner at Conference of Champions. He is an internationally sought-after speaker, career coach, and consultant. With more than 49 years in the business, Sol is showing no signs of slowing down as he continues to add exciting and inspiring chapters to his already remarkable life.
Sol is the author of three books. “Wise Guys Finish First,” is an autobiographical portrait of overcoming incredible obstacles to get to the top. In “The Secret Life of a #1 Salesman,” he shares the mindset, values and daily disciplines that led him to his great success and “Making Disciples” where he will show you how to move up and stand out in a world where the power to move products is increasingly dependent on your ability to move people.
Sol is a life and qualifying member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) for 32 years, a 23-time Court of the Table (COT) qualifier, and a 20-time Top of the Table (TOT) qualifier. He was the General Agents and Managers Association’s Agent of the Year in 1998, 1997, 1996, and 1995. He is one of only two agents in Prudential’s 130-plus-year history to have won the President’s Trophy Award—that company’s highest honor, given to its number one agent—a staggering seven times. (To put that deed into perspective, it should be noted that it took more than 25 years for the other seven-time trophy winner to accomplish this feat, while Sol’s effort took him just 10 years). He has received Prudential’s President’s Citation Award 21 times.
Believing that success is not only attainable but transferable, Sol spends much of his time mentoring more than 150 agents worldwide, including his two daughters, Cynthia and Catina, who joined him in the business and are both 3-time MDRT qualifiers. Sol has been married to his wife Carol for 55 years. He proposed to her the day he met her. She turned him down that day and every day for 84 days after that. She finally accepted on the 86th day and they were wed just four days later.
“I consider Carol my first successful sale, and the toughest one.
I’m not intimidated by a ‘no.’”
