As the owner and CEO of Midstate Collection Solutions - one of the most unique collection agencies in the country - Mary Shores has blazed the trail that connects mindfulness, through leadership, and business strategies to the not-so-secret tune of manifesting health, wealth, and abundance.   Her philosphy of maintaining a positive sales approach to debt collection reframed her entire organization and her life.  As her company expanded toward treating each customer with kindness and respect, Mary refined her communication techniques and created a principle that she live by: Words that Work.  Now a nationally sought-after seminar, it has the primary tenet of eliminating negative words from our vocabularies-words like no, don't, can't won't, however, unfortunately, and but- and has cultivated more than customer satisfaction.  The program itself has changed the life of nearly every employee, client and workshop or seminar attendee for the better-an achievement that far outweighs the $30 million in revenue her company has collected in the last decade alone..
