7 years ago I was in a job that I hated. I was unfufilled, worked long hours and didn’t feel I was getting paid what I was worth.
I had started out making appointments for senior B2B sales people and over the course of nearly a decade, I had risen through the ranks and become a successful B2B salesperson.
I had a BMW and was managing multi-mullion accounts including Pepsi and other household names. I was earning massive commission payments from creating and then closing $500k plus deals.
I felt like I deserved it, I had been a student of the game, worked weekends and mastered my craft. I had made sure I had learned from the best and I was rising quickly.
But I was empty inside. I didn’t believe in what I was selling and none of it was mine. I was missing something and at that point, I had no idea what.
Even My friends had been commenting on how I didn’t have the energy I used to and how they didn’t see me as much.
I was an everpresent on the London drinking scene. Looking back, this was my way to escape my reality. My reality of waking up every day and doing a job that I hated.
One day, after a visit to the doctor in which I was diagnosed with Hypertension at the age of 29. I decided enough was enough. For the first time in my life, I ignored the voices in my head that were telling me to stay where I was. That a safe salaried job was the way forwards.
I had decided it was time for action, time to take control of my life and live it on my terms, write my own story and create a legacy.
I quit my job and went on a year out, that year out became 7 and during that time I started my own business.
It was tough going from the support of a team and experts behind me.
The cut and thrust of selling as a small business is different, but I quickly adapted.
I started two independent businesses that failed, and taking everything I had learned, I built a successful in-person sales training business.
In 2017 I took this business online and started working with entrepreneurs and business owners trying to do amazing things, I started helping them to build their businesses just as I had when I started out as an independent .
It’s become my passion to help people find their potential, get their business moving and eliminate that niggling worry about where the next client is going to come from.
My mission is to make sure business owners know exactly where their next client is coming from, that they have a B2B sales and marketing system based around LinkedIn that will consistently and predictable produce new qualified and interested prospects and then a system that allows you to easily convert them into new clients.
I aim to help thousands of people build their businesses in the next decade.
Let’s have a chat – I’d love to hear about your business, what you are creating and you ‘why’, what drives you and who your serve
