Desmond now trains and leads sales teams for small businesses that want to go from 6 figures and get to 7 figures in sales. Desmond is traveling the world right now and building an 8-figure sales agency. He has started his podcast, Campfire Capitalism, to connect the dots between sales growth, stages of business, and new tech that can support other entrepreneurs like himself.
