Jonathan DeCollibus: Closing More Sales With Less Effort - Bacon Wrapped Business With Brad Costanzo


    Jonathan DeCollibus is the “Closing Mentor”. After becoming an expert in sales, he decided to pursue his passion for teaching others to do the same.

    Jonathan was once a typical 15-year old farm boy from California, but after getting a glimpse of the Forbes magazine cover, he decided he’d be rich. He went on to eventually build and sell companies in industries ranging from residential construction, organic beef distribution, international marketing consulting, and many others.

    Knowing how to sell is extremely important. It’s one of the noblest professions there is. It's the one thing that you will not learn in college or anywhere except in the trenches of doing it or with mentors. I’ve invited Jonathan on the show so he can share with us his bacon wrapped strategies for mastering the art of selling.
