    Powerhouse Sales: Contractor Evolution

    Powerhouse Sales: Contractor Evolution

    These two contracting entrepreneurs had a hard time letting go of sales, but when they finally took the leap of faith, their businesses went through the roof!

    Does the perfect high-performing sales team really exist? C'mon?!
    According to Mason Marquis, owner of Spray-Tex, and Jesse Kreisman, owner of Alco Products Inc, it does...and once you've found the secret elixir, your business will finally be free to level up.

    Marquis had a hard time stepping away from sales. He loved it. And, more importantly, he didn't trust someone enough to release those reins.
    Kreisman in contrast understood that his business had hit a ceiling, and it would require a certain kind of salesperson (and not the kind we would expect) to break through the roof.

    What did these two incredibly successful entrepreneurs do to attract and hire sales superstars and what steps do they take so they don't lose those unicorns? (They also managed to step away from their business and they don't have to deal with any sales drama.)

    Breakthrough Academy hosts Benji Carlson and Danny Kerr sit down with Marquis and Kreisman in our latest Contractor Evolution podcast to ask the questions people are often too scared to ask.

    We've got you covered...no worries.
