Meet J. Michael

the ACCIDENTAL acceleration expert

prepare for impact

An open message from our Founder:

Have you ever asked yourself:  Is this all that I’m capable of? Is this all there is – and if not, how do I achieve more? Who can I talk to, who can I work with, that can help me become achieve my goals – both personally and professionally?

I’m no stranger to the top:  I’ve built and managed dozens of sales teams, the largest consisting of 2,100 B2B financial sales agents in 48 states (and I built it in less than 32 months).

I’ve personally coached close to 2,000 sales professionals with my Revolution Selling methodology.

And I’ve personally been responsible for generating over a half billion dollars in new sales revenues for the respective companies that I’ve either managed, coached, trained or consulted with.

But it wasn’t easy getting here. I’m no stranger to the bottom: I’ve intimately known struggles both personally and professionally, made countless stupid mistakes, and ignored critical opportunities. My ability to successfully help both sales professionals and businesses grow their sales results only came after decades of hard, determined work.

I tackled the sales game in what I call the ‘very hard and super-slow’ way. Now my mission is to share the better, faster, easier (and very proven) way with 10,000 business leaders just like you.

Business leaders like you rarely see their results accelerate into another gear (and there are other gears) without paradigm-shifting collisions, earth-shattering moments, and plenty of moments that challenge your comfort zone.

I call this the ‘lumberjack syndrome’: You’re furiously chopping wood in the forest (perhaps more than any other lumberjack) … but despite all that hard work and burning the candle at both ends, you still can’t seem to get your results to grow.

That’s because your axe is dull.

Abraham Lincoln famously said, “Give me 6 hours to chop down a tree, I will spend the first 4 hours sharpening my axe.”

I have the axe sharpener.  I can help you sense what you can achieve – which is probably more than you can ever imagine – develop a path to achieve that new level, give you the tools to accelerate down that path, and then support you on that journey.

It’s my job, mission and honor to help you understand that world-class sales coaching like mine will create lifelong changes in your results, your income and yourself.

You came here to learn about me,

Here’s what you need to know.

I’ve been a competitive high-performer since birth (I was born before my due date by just over a week), driving my early teachers crazy because I would sell the other students my answers to homework assignments (made enough to buy a new Schwinn bicycle in the 2nd grade).  

In school, I was always an honor student.  Graduated summa cum laude. Was top sales performer at every company I ever worked with one notable exception (where I was the #2). Would insanely ask sales managers to give me higher quotas just so I could prove to myself I could do it (in those days I had a hungry ego, and even hungrier kids).

I made just about every mistake you can think of on my journey to figure out the whole ‘sales game’. I’ve almost lost everything. I’ve been scared on the battlefields of business and life. I’ve lost huge opportunities simply because I was too anxious, too undisciplined. I’ve been divorced. Survived a major car accident. I’ve come within minutes of jumping off a bridge. I’ve made some major screw-ups.

So when I tell you that I’ve been there, I mean it. And if we work together, and when I try to stop you from making some of the same mistakes I’ve made, you will know that I’m talking from a place of experience.

Even though I’ve always been involved with sales in some way or another my entire life, I’ve never consindered myself a ‘sales expert’. I actually think of myself more of a teacher.

As a volunteer teacher at the Salvation Army, I’ve helped more than 311 adults successfully earn their GED (and I still receive thank-you cards from most of them every year).

That has given me more self-fulfillment than all the money, praise and back-slapping I’ve earned throughout my career.

Of all the things I’ve done – from helping build multiple sales teams to establishing several nationwide business development divisions to being one of the first people in history to be a certified sales professional in the merchant processing industry – Revolution Selling is the reason I’m on this planet. I eat, sleep and breathe helping badass sales professionals like you get more out of life.

If you’re reading this,

there’s a good chance:

  • We have a lot in common
  • You’ve come a hell of a long way on your own and you’ve got the battle scars to prove it
  • You’ve got a burning hunger for something bigger, better, more badass for yourself and your business
  • You want someone to help you get to that next level by doing things smarter, not harder

My team and I are prepared to push you and your business further and faster than you ever thought possible.

The only question is:  Are you ready for this?

Every client of Revolution Selling is more than an exceptional business owner, entreprenuer or professional.

They are also spouses, parents, little league coaches, friends, community leaders and volunteers.

They don’t want to just multiply their contribution to their bank account balance – they want to multiply their contribution to everything.
