WHO I AM
Being Raised on the Shores of Lake Michigan in a tiny Wisconsin Town Midwestern Values were instilled in me along with the Teachings of the Great Vince Lombardi. From an early age I enjoyed Business as I took great pride in being the Stockroom Supervisor of the Liquor department at the local Drug Store. At a ripe old age of 16 I was recommending Pinot Grigio’s and Cabernet’s to Customers even though I never tried them. I was a Liquor salesman’s best friend. I then graduated to working at the Great American Shoe Company Allen-Edmonds learning how to connect with people over Shoes.
While in College My Career Path lead me to an Internship with the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA as I am a Huge sports fanatic and it was a dream come true. My first job was to collect quotes from Players in the Locker after the game. I had no idea what I was doing and before I knew it I was on my knees trying to write a quote down from Chris Mullen. As the media grew silent I looked up at him and was staring face to face with his privates and he keenly joked to the other seasoned Sportswriters…..Got a good view down there Son? My Journalism career never took off after that.
My career path continued with a Sales Job with the Bucks after College Graduation. I was then offered an opportunity to open a new sales territory in Dallas, TX for Allen Edmonds Shoes shortly thereafter and thus was the beginning of my Passion for Footwear and Sales. My Footwear Career moved me to Dallas, TX for a year and then a move to Orlando, FL where I currently reside.
My Passion for Sales and Sales Management has lead me to read countless books on Motivation and Psychology and also to obtain an MBA From the University of Central Florida.
I love meeting People and believe that is my greatest strength. I actually enjoy listening and talking to people….whether it is face to face, over the phone, or via email I love creating relationships. After all, a wise men once told me that building relationships is the Crux of Life….don’t ever forget that. I hope by helping you Win Each Day you can Help Others Along the Way Win their Day
