The Sales Evangelist

If you are ready to take control of your own destiny, get ready to hear the conversation with someone who has done exactly that. In this episode, Donald meets with Michael Schill, a former athlete who learned his skills in sales from NYT Bestselling Author and Real Estate mogul, Grant Cardone. Schill is now the founder of his own organization, Full Circle Agency. Listen in as he discusses how he got to where he is today, the lessons he has learned, and how he makes sure he will achieve his goals for the future.

Schill’s Background

  • He played football for Florida State University, where he learned the discipline it takes to improve – if you don’t show up and train, you don’t win.
  • Academics were also a huge focus for him – Schill graduated with a BA in Exercise Science from FSU.
  • He received a world class education working with Grant Cardone, training extensively in sales and learning how to solve the problem every product faces: building awareness.

A Few of Schill’s Core Tips for Success

  • Have a schedule. The only things that go on the schedule are “profit and/or potential profit-producing activities.”
  • Always be “on.” As he puts it, “all the greats have it.” No matter how many people you’re speaking to, or what you’re speaking to them about, you always represent you.
  • Learn to communicate effectively. If you can learn to get your message across concisely and correctly, this is what can take you to the next level.

Of course, in the episode, we go into way more depth on these topics and so much more. You’re sure to find yourself inspired to get out there, work hard, and make things happen for yourself.
