Eddie Martin is a born salesman, although it wasn’t always so obvious to him. His life became challenging at nineteen years old when his first child was born. With no college education or real world job experience, and a child to support, Eddie bounced around from job to job, trying to find his stride. Fortunately, due to his exceptional communication skills, winning attitude and laser focus, he was able to secure a few management positions.
Looking for a new career path, he took a position in the compressed gas business.
Eddie remained loyal to that business for the next seven years before departing after the company was bought out. Moving on to another gas company, he broke through in the first twelve months, smashing sales records that had been held for over fifteen years.
When the new management team met with Eddie, rather than let him go, they were impressed. With their sales numbers dropping, Eddie was assigned a top territory. Once again, with no sales training, Eddie excelled and stayed on board for five years, establishing himself as one of the top ten sales producers in the nation.
He decided to take his talents to the insurance industry, taking a role as a sales manager. After spending a couple of months in the field, he transitioned into his management position.
Through the ups and downs, job changes, personal challenges and corporate shell games, the main thing that he took away was the value of training in order to produce measurable results.
While building a personal brand via social media he ran across LightSpeed VT. After speaking about the company and the core focus on the value of training, he decided to team up with LightSpeed VT. Eddie now spends his days educating people on the value of training. He has a history of showing serious subject matter experts how to scale their businesses from four figures all the way up to 8 figures monthly in some cases, by monetizing their content using LightSpeeds web-based interactive training platform. He also helps traditional businesses train and onboard their staff more effectively by using the LightSpeedVT system.
