Making it to the University of Tennessee in 2005 made me realize that my professional football dreams were only four years away. I needed to make every year count. So first I had to fall in love with the weight room so that my body could change physically from a boy to a man.
The whole idea that sports was training me for sales never occurred to me. I mean, I knew it was preparing me for life, but to what extent, I wasn’t sure. After 13 years of playing football at an elite level in the SEC to having a short professional career, I soon realized I had been positioned to prosper in sales. Here is how it all happened and how I was able to apply my sports training into sales training and dominate within my industry.
