Michael Black

Pain Discoverer, Conversation Navigator, Quota Maker

Who I am:

With a cheerleader mentality, consistent optimism and strategical humility, I am able to use my experiential knowledge and "always be 1% better" mentality to beat quotas, be a leader in attitude, and raise the bar for any group of which I am apart. I bring more then high numbers, I bring a contagious winners mentality and a drive for self, and team improvement.
