I'm Mary Shores

I'm an author, speaker, entrepreneur, and CEO. I've also run a debt collection agency for the last 21 years. You could say I know a thing or two about having tense conversations at work.

Let's face it, debt collectors are not popular people. They're seen as pariahs, predators, and all around bad guys. I knew that there had to be a way to restore humanity to this stigmatized industry. In fact, just a few years into my business, I created a simple mission: I wanted the next person I spoke with on the phone to be happier at the end of the call than they were at the start. 

All that was left was figuring out how to do it! So I used my debt collection agency as a lab to discover exactly how conscious communication can transform a business. I studied neurobiology to unlock the inner workings of the human brain and learned how to create connection with everyone in my business (from managers to agents to the consumers on the other end of the line).

I achieved my original mission and also created one of the most unique collection agencies in the country. Our profits grew exponentially, employee turnover decreased, and our consumers really are happy (we've even received Thank You notes from them!).

If I can increase profits with compassion and empathy in the debt collection industry, I know that it's possible for your business, too. Discover how I can help you and your team improve communication to create the business you've always wanted.

“I’m so happy with the results that we’re seeing from this training. I’m loving it. I know the collectors are loving it.”

— Kandi Ledford-Marler, Vice President of Revenue Enhancement at DataMax Corporation
