My full name is Diego M. De Los Reyes, and I'm a writer and business strategist who's consulted 250+ companies on their sales and marketing processes.
I graduated from Florida International University with a degree in Business Management, and I hold certifications in Google Analytics and Ads Search, SEO, Marketing Strategy, and Facebook Ads.
I've had a pretty unique career.
I encourage you to keep scrolling for an overview of my story as well as my latest positions.
In a nutshell, my story can be summarized in a few paragraphs.
I was a top-performing telemarketer for Sears Holdings who consistently brought in $100k-200k per month with an average closing ratio of 30-40 percent.
Around the time Sears was filing for Chapter 11, I began listening to sales trainers like Grant Cardone and Jordan Belfort to increase the amount of sales I could make.
Eventually, I decided that it was time to make a shift in my career as selling for a company under bankruptcy makes telemarketing twice as difficult.
Because I had been listening to Grant Cardone at the time, I found out he was located in Aventura, FL, about an hour away from where I had been working.
I applied to work for Cardone Training Technologies, Inc., and I got a job as a Client Performance Manager (sales trainer) that same week.
Fun fact: The day I interviewed for the role was the day Grant hit 1 million subscribers on YouTube.
On top of consulting small to medium-sized companies on how to sell effectively, I got to see big influencers like John Maxwell, Jon Taffer, Steve Harvey, Jesse Itzler, Sara Blakely, Tai Lopez, and Daymond John speak at our company events.
I realized that all these influencers had two things in common: They knew sales, and they knew digital marketing.
I felt I had the former pretty dialed in as a telemarketer with 5+ years of experience and the ability to train sales teams of any size.
The latter is what caused me to shift my career to work for the agency I'm at today.
