Take Your Sales Game To The TOP.

Do you think it’s luck the same people are at the TOP of the sales leaderboard every year? The universe doesn’t play favorites. Success in sales is very predictable.

TOP Academy has been a gamechanger for our sales team. Paul and Tom have empowered our reps to master core sales skills, and truly go above and beyond to provide coaching, feedback, and training on the most important pieces of sales excellence. As a result, our reps’ opportunity management has improved radically. I can’t recommend the program highly

Top One Percenter Academy

The Top One Percenter is a private sales network exclusively for members who have graduated the TOP One Percenter Academy. Rising sales stars and TOP 1% sales professionals come together to prepare, learn, and master the art of sales.

It all starts with mastering your mindset and cementing winning habits to perform at the highest level possible. Potential candidates must apply online and complete an interview process.

Sales leaders looking to nominate multiple salespeople will need to schedule an initial call online. Applying to the TOP Academy is allowed only once in a candidate’s career.

If a candidate does not receive an offer or does not accept an offer to join the upcoming TOP Academy Cohort, that candidate may not apply again. Upon acceptance to the TOP Academy, these sales professionals are required to successfully complete a private 12 week virtual sales bootcamp in order to become a Top One Percenter member.

A select few sales professionals are accepted each quarter to attend the Top One Percenter Academy and not everyone successfully graduates to become a TOP One Percenter.
