Managing a sales force of 13 “in-home” sales people and doing over 2,327 “kitchen table” presentations enabled him to develop a presentation process that helps the prospect to “close” themselves – on the spot! MJ sold that business for a healthy profit and started a sales training and personal growth business that has helped thousands of people reach their sales and success goals.
