In this episode of the Transformed Sales Podcast, I had a chat with Alec Wons, an author, coach, passionate and positive entrepreneur, and salesman. Alec firmly believes that everyone (no matter how young or old) should fail as much and as often as possible. He sees failures as learning opportunities. He enjoys being physically active, reading, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. 

He graduated from Marquette University where he played D1 college soccer and got his degree in Exercise Physiology. Alec will share what he has learned through his struggles and failures. If you are struggling through the day-to-day of life's adventures and being in a sales career either as a leader or individual contributor, Alec has some great advice for you. Tune in for more!
