What Major League Baseball Taught Me About Sales
A lot of sales people have a sports background. You might even say, it’s a stereotype to assume a salesperson was an athlete at some point in their life.

Kevin was a professional baseball player and although he didn’t have a long career he stayed long enough to experience and learn many lessons that not only helped him in life but also helped him sell better. In this episode, Kevin dives into his sports background and shares lessons he learned playing baseball and perfecting sales.
