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 being 2,082 B2B financial sales agents in 48 states (built from scratch in under 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 revenues for the respective companies that I’ve either managed, coached, trained or consulted with.

But it wasn’t always like this.

 

I’m no stranger to the bottom, either: 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 revenues came after decades of hard, determined work while overcoming multiple failures.

I tackled my sales career using the ‘very hard and super-slow‘ way.

Now my mission is to share the better, faster, easier (and very proven) way with 10,000 sales professionals just like you.

Sales professionals like you rarely accelerate into another gear (and there are other gears) without having paradigm-shifting collisions, earth-shattering moments, and dealing with plenty of situations that challenge your comfort zone.

I call this the ‘lumberjack syndrome’: There you are, furiously chopping away in the forest … but despite all your hard work, you still can’t seem to achieve the success you really want.

Do you know why?

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.”

Well, I have the axe sharpener … You’ve just been too busy to sharpen yours.

I can help you sense what you can achieve – which is probably a lot more than you can imagine – develop a path for you to do it, give you the tools to accelerate you down that path, and then support you on your entire journey.

You came here to this page 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), driving my early teachers crazy as I sold my homework answers to the other students (and earned enough to buy a new Schwinn bicycle before the 5th grade).  

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

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 or too undisciplined. I’ve been divorced, survived a major car accident, and come within minutes of jumping off a bridge. 

So when I tell you that “I’ve been there”, I really mean it.

So if we work together and if there ever comes a time when I try to stop you from making a mistake, 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 whole life, I’ve never really consindered myself a ‘sales expert’.

I actually think of myself as more of a teacher who is trying to pass on what I’ve learned so others can benefit from my experience.

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 payment 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, and/or more badass for yourself
  • You want someone to help you get to that next level by showing you how to do things better, faster, smarter

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

The only question is:  Are you ready?

Every sales professional we work with is more than just an exceptional person … 

They are also spouses, parents, little league coaches, friends, community leaders, volunteers, and a whole lot more.

They don’t want to just succeed financially – they want to succeed in everything they do.
