Merit Gest

MERIT GEST, an Alpine Link Corporation partner, is creator of the Sales Mindset Mastery Program at Merit-Based Development, Inc. Corporations as large as Microsoft, as well as small businesses and entrepreneurs, have benefited from Merit’s training, consulting, and coaching.

Merit brings years of study and real world experience to her clients.  Among her many accomplishments are being the youngest General Sales Manager in the Chicago radio market and backpacking around the world for one full year on her own.  Merit’s extensive leadership training included focusing on behaviors, attitudes and techniques to elicit the best in others so they can overcome self-limiting beliefs and achieve their professional and personal goals.

As a member of the National Speakers Association, professional organizations across the country have benefited from Merit’s personal blend of humor, storytelling and interactive talks and training workshops.  Merit is regularly featured in Selling Power Magazine as an expert advisor.  She has taught hundreds of salespeople and who have created millions of dollars in sales because of her coaching.

A true adventurer, Merit pulls business lessons from her experiences backpacking around the world, bungee jumping, sky diving, ice climbing, scuba diving, paragliding and walking on hot coals.  She’s likely the only person on the planet who’s broken a left foot in Israel and a right leg in Croatia, but somehow she’s walked away from both with inspiring messages to share that allow people an opportunity to find their own personal strength.  She helps people crack the code of their earning potential with her 5-step process called The M.E.R.I.T. Method.
