Martha Fouts, Mergers and Acquisition Master Intermediary, recently hit Amazon.com’s Best-Seller List with the new book, “Game Changers,” climbing to #1 in the Direct Marketing category.
Orlando, Fl. – November 30, 2010 – Martha Fouts, of www.TrademarkMergers.com, recently joined a select group of America’s leading entrepreneurs and businesspeople to collaborate and co-write the business and marketing book titled, Game Changers: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs: How They’re Changing The Game, and You Can Too! The book was published by Nick Nanton, Esq., and business partner JW Dicks, Esq. under their CelebrityPress® imprint.
An entrepreneur for most of her life, Martha Fouts has applied her street savvy sales and negotiation skills in every business she has owned from retail clothing, to apparel manufacturing, to T-shirt licensing, to sales and marketing and distribution companies. Ten years of corporate sales experience in venture capital and private equity backed early stage healthcare technology companies added additional finesse. She continues to hone these skills today in her current role as an exit planning specialist and M&A advisor.
The book, Game Changers: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs: How They’re Changing The Game, and You Can Too!, was released on Thursday, November 18th and reached best-seller status in three Amazon.com categories: Communications, Direct Marketing and Entrepreneurship. The book reached #1 in the Direct Marketing category.
Game Changers: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs: How They’re Changing The Game, and You Can Too! features anecdotes, business strategies and real-life solutions to many of the challenges faced by small and large businesses across the country, in a rapidly changing economy. Martha authored a chapter in the book titled, “Protect Your Ass(ets) For a Change of Ownership.”
Game Changers is a collective MasterMind effort of leading entrepreneurs teaching their latest strategies to help you succeed in this new economy. Whether starting a business from scratch, or realigning your marketing and sales programs for established products and services, this book will teach you fresh and recently tested successful methods you need to know (and pitfalls to avoid). These methods are as different from those used by the baby boomer generation as the abacus is from the computer.

About Martha Fouts:
Martha Fouts, M&AMI, is a highly successful Mergers & Acquisitions Master Intermediary who is frequently sought after as an entertaining speaker on topics relating to exit strategies, industry trends, and creative ways to maximize corporate value. Less than 100 M&A intermediaries worldwide have completed the rigorous educational and deal closing requirements earning them the right to use the M&AMI designation
Fouts began her entrepreneurial career straight out of college but not in the rarified air of investment banking and mergers and acquisitions. “I learned my deal making skills from the bottom up selling secondhand American sportswear in outdoor flea markets in England in the early 1970’s.”
She has applied her street savvy sales and negotiation skills in every business she has owned from retail clothing, to apparel manufacturing, to T-shirt licensing, to sales and marketing and distribution companies. Ten years of corporate sales experience in venture capital and private equity backed early stage healthcare technology companies added additional finesse. She continues to hone these skills today in her current role as an exit planning specialist and M&A advisor. She has survived no less than three recessions with her quirky sense of humor still intact.
Becoming a Mergers & Acquisitions advisor was a natural progression for Fouts. The sale of her own company exposed Fouts to just how complicated, confusing and emotionally daunting the whole process can be. Running a business day to day, year in and year out requires all kinds of stamina, skill and brute force determination. You can get into business by yourself, but it often requires a team of trained professionals to properly plan a successful exit. Fouts does not pretend that exiting a business is cardiac surgery but it isn’t a simple financial transaction either. Just like a heart surgeon has to consider his whole patient not just his patient’s heart muscle, a good exit planning strategist needs to consider the personal, emotional, tax, succession and charitable gifting interests (etc.,) of his clients, not just the transaction price. Exit planning is not for the faint of heart or for advisors that don’t play well with others. A successful Trademark exit is more than a simple marriage between a willing buyer and a willing seller. Careful advanced planning with an experienced multiple-disciplinary advisory team and determined execution are the keys to a successful exit.

About The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™:
The National Academy of Best Selling Authors™ was founded by two attorneys, JW Dicks, Esq. and Nick Nation, Esq. who are also best selling authors and represent authors and experts nationwide. Both of the attorneys are members of multiple organizations, associations and academies that recognize and honor the best in the business, and they thought a similar organization should be created for Best Selling authors who don’t always get recognition for their accomplishment. Authors themselves, they recognized that only a very limited number of books made the major New York Times Best Seller list and just like the awards shows put on by the entertainment-based organizations, they wanted to have more categories for authors to be accepted and recognized for their accomplishment. The National Academy of Best Selling Authors™ now honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
