At 22, right out of the Marine Corps, Donnie Boivin landed his first straight commission sales job, and for 20 years he learned what it took to be successful in sales, business & life.
At that youthful age, he thought he knew enough to survive in one of the toughest professions in the world (being a sales professional), he quickly realized sales wasn’t as easy as it looked.
At the age of 40, he discovered he had been living other people's dreams and not chasing his own. Taking the biggest risk in his life, he jumped out on his own and started a business. Although he had great success at the start, he now understood he knew nothing about being a business owner.
On the brink of failure and shutting down his business, he found podcasting and everything changed. Now a Top 200 business podcast on Apple Podcasts/iTunes, Donnie’s Success Champions is helping the world one story at a time.
In this episode with Donnie Boivin: operating in a state of chaos, entrepreneur is just another word for MLM, why you need to take ownership, how to tank your business and how to talk to people.
