Hi, my name is Ray Reed and I am an entrepreneur, sales junkie, public speaker, coach of all sorts, and of course a COLLEGE DROPOUT.
I attended Saint Leo University and Florida College, two small private institutions near Tampa, Florida, on baseball scholarships. After pursuing a professional baseball career I also attended 3 community colleges in Florida before deciding that college wasn’t for me.
I have been very successful as an independent business owner. I have 6 years of direct sales experience in which I performed at an elite level. In 2008, I was a national champion sales representative for a multi-million dollar international marketing firm.
I have managed and lead a sales team of over 350 people to produce $1.5 million in the last two years. I love helping people think big and achieve bigger.
Many people would describe me as passionate and intense, which I take as a compliment. I feel if you can’t be passionate about what you are doing then you shouldn’t do it.
I give speeches for groups of all sizes. My experience ranges from staffs of 5 to organizations of 1,000.
As far as my personal life goes…
I currently live in Tampa, Florida.
I have a passion for playing team sports particularly baseball and soccer. I also love watching most sports. I root for the Red Sox, Patriots, and Miami Heat.
I have traveled to The Bahamas, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, Jamaica, Canada, and Ireland. I plan on doubling this list in 2012.
My goal, much like Chris’s, is to provide value to you through my experiences and knowledge, helping you find the career you want, make more money, and live the lifestyle of your dreams.
