My favorite thing I’ve sold… baked goods! They light up faces faster than any other product I’ve sold. As a kid I would setup baked goods & beverage stands outside open houses in my neighborhood, something only a wise child with supportive parents could get away with. After a few transactions and leaving with a register full of cash, I was hooked. I’ve sold shoes, chocolate, solar, cleaning services, SMB software, SaaS enterprise solutions, and can’t wait to see what gets added to the list in the years to come.
Right now my main career focus is learning how to help the mid market leverage technology that five years ago wasn’t available to them. Projects that would cost millions in development for a mid-grade product can now be streamlined for a fraction of the cost. Our goal is to help those companies grow in whichever direction they define as success.
I love spending time with my wife and daughter going to the park with the doggo. I am addicted to the game of golf with lofty aspirations of one day reaching scratch. At this point, a hole-in-one would suffice.
Lastly, my two favorite mantras:
“If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you’ve always gotten.”
“Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
