with Special Guest

Jacob Turner

Former Major League Baseball first round draft pick, Jacob Turner, and Mike talk about the discipline, determination, and desire required to succeed at the highest in level of sports and sales. Hear Jacob’s journey from high school standout, to “bonus baby” (signing a $5,000,000+ contract at 18 years old) through the ups, downs, and disappointments of his MLB career to his transformation into a successful, confident sales professional and strategic wealth advisor.

Enjoy Jacob’s evolution from an admittedly “anti-sales” person to someone who has embraced the role and profession of selling to become a trusted advisor, value-creator and consultant. Speaking directly, Jacob shares how much he initially hated the word sales, how bad he was when he started, and the process he followed to drastically improve (building on the New Sales. Simplified. framework).

Hear how Jacob has applied Max Scherzer’s pitching advice that “confidence is a choice” to selling, and how he has experienced first-hand that owning your sales process breeds confidence and drives success!
