I am so energized and fired up of the gentleman I have on the show today!! When I finally met him in person, I said, “shit he’s a really tall dude!” But as it turns out, he is one of most authentic and incredible human beings, I’ve ever met. He comes from a pure place of just fun and energy, with love, a sales guru at that. So, it’s my distinct honor and pleasure to bring Mr. Victor Antonio to the A Desire to Inspire with Manny Patrick show!
He was the biggest introvert when he was in high school but now He charges USD 12,000 to 25,000 for a one hour speech nationally and internationally.
He had a poor background where it was all poverty, drugs and gangs. But he managed to earn a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and an MBA. He did well in corporate America. But, he did not have many people who wanted to help him or assist him along, during his journey.
In this episode you will learn:
Where Victor’s journey started and what it took for him to get to where he is today.
How does somebody who is unhappy and not moving forward, take themselves from where they are right now, get out of the way and do something smarter to go where they want to go.
How do you get underneath the skin and get to take the necessary action when you already have all the information and know what you need to do, but taking the action is the real problem.
Are sales people born or are they made?
How do you get people to know they can trust you during a sales process?
What you can start doing when you are ‘Quiet Discontent’ with what you are doing presently.
How to be a trusted advisor?
How do you find the insight, the information, beyond the obvious?
How do you switch out the broke mindset into a success mindset?
What is his one lesson of inspiration for the listeners?
