    This Month's Guest : : Mick White

    For our last episode of 2019, we have saved one of the most inspirational guests to close out the season.

    2019  proved to be the biggest year yet for Coffee&Closers (awards, new  events launched, sold out venues) and Mick White was one of the key  players in helping achieve these accomplishments.

    Over  4 years ago, deep into his tenured career as a financial advisor,  Mick  White had an earthquake rip through his personal life. At that moment  he had to make a decision whether to stay put and play it safe or use  this hardship as fuel to start a revolution.

    He  chose the latter and has since developed his 100 Year Manifesto, an  owner centric planning platform that helps founders/busy entrepreneurs  take back their sanity and protect their financial assets via unique  growth and risk management strategies.

    Join  us for the final Coffee&Closers episode of 2019 and learn how  "Against All Odds," Mick changed the financial sales game and has since  crafted the life he has always dreamed of.

    Coffee&Closers - How it All Began feat. Mickeli Bedore

    Two years ago a salesman rented a co-working  room in hopes of helping a handful of brilliant  founders/solopreneurs/etc. in need "sell" their offering better. One of  the attendees decided to record it.

    Please  join us September 10th as we celebrate the last two years of Coffee  & Closers, and introduce a new quarterly celebration... Cocktails  & Closers.

    Enjoy libations,  music performed by local legend + Coffee & Closers own Alex Rossi as  well as a special live recorded podcast interview with our  founder/salesman, Mickeli Bedore.

    Life is more fun when business is booming...  join us for the celebration.

    This Month's Guest : : Mickeli Bedore

    After  24 sold out live shows interviewing others, our founder/host &  sales superstar is ready to sit back in the hotseat he created.

    Ryan  Padget, his first sales manager dating back to Mickeli's first paid  sales job (Southwestern Company) in college; will be the interviewer.

    Together  these colleagues, friends & award winning professionals have helped  shape the local sales landscape. Enjoy an unfiltered, free-flow,  conversation between two of the most celebrated names in the local sales  community.
