In today's episode, we're joined by Zach Sasser, top sales consultant at Break Free Academy -- an online education provider for entrepreneurs, salespeople, business owners and executives. Their coaches are industry experts who know the nuances of the game and have experienced them all. He is also the Founder and CEO at Matrix Marketing Firm, a company that helps service area businesses grow their practice by acquiring high-paying calls every month.
Listen to Zach’s journey developing exceptional sales skills and founding and managing different companies in his early twenties!
Zach has been into sales since he was in middle school. He was part of Ryan Stewman's (Founder of Break Free Academy) largest pro sales group on Facebook called Sales Talk With Sales Pros. Zach's dad was a client with their Apex program.
While on a call with Danny Galvez (Specialist at Break Free Academy), Zach's dad introduced him to Danny. Learning how Zach was into sales and marketing, Danny offered him an opportunity to intern with them. Zach soon joined their sister networks, Phone Sites and Apex and worked up to become the top sales producer at Break Free Academy in a short period. He learns and works alongside top sales professionals of our time today.
We also discuss the Apex program at Break Free Academy. The program helps people focus on their teams, scale their systems, processes, and hiring methods by providing them with the skills and expertise they need. Zach explains that the most significant number of people in their program are executives (150-160 in number). They also have entrepreneurs and entourage, but they're a lower number in comparison. The program essentially brings in 7-8-9 figure income persons and helps optimize their business further by training and coaching. It also offers them opportunities for high-level conversations with winning professionals.
Apart from the details and offerings from his business and job, Zach also shares sales skills and tips, including the importance of training your mind when you're a part of sales. He shares how to build confidence when pitching your sales and why you need to view the profession as a means to help people genuinely. You'll also learn the importance of having a servant mindset while approaching your clients.
Making money is not wrong. As a sales professional, you provide value for clients by understanding their demands and requirements and helping them discover options.
Tune in to this conversation to learn how the 21-year-old professional is reaping huge sums by leveraging the industry's power!
