My Story: From over 600 Million in Corporate Sales to a 6-Figure Business

Welcome to the latest episode of the Master The Sales Game podcast! Today, I will be sharing more on my journey and the amazing content and guests we have lined up on the show. My story is about the power of perseverance, resilience, and the ability to turn breakdowns into breakthroughs.

Introverted to sales

I never intended to pursue a career in sales. In fact, I kept avoiding sales jobs for as long as I can remember. Despite growing up around entrepreneurship and business, I was always an introvert and distanced myself from sales and public speaking. But, life had other plans for me.

Mastering a sales process through mentors

After working in a corporate sales role, I found myself with the challenge of mastering the art of selling. Despite my initial reservations and lack of natural sales skills, I wanted to succeed. I had a mentor who showed a sales process that I could adapt and master for myself. This experience led to my ability to sell over 40 million in personal sales and generate over 600 million in corporate sales. But this wasn’t the end of my story.

How my breakdown lead to my breakthrough

The facade of a perfect life with a family and corporate success was gone when I experienced a major breakdown. This breakdown, which felt like a panic attack triggered by anxiety, depression, and chronic physical pain, ultimately led to my breakthrough. It opened the door to a new business and life that I never imagined.
