Joe Paranteau is a practicing Sales Director for Microsoft where he has held positions for over 17years. A keynote speaker, coach and sales thought leader, Joe has led nearly 30K sales meetings in his 28-year career with Fortune 500, SMBs, and startup businesses.
Within a five year span, he sold more than $1B in revenue, which motivated him to share his insights.
In his first book, Billion Dollar Sales Secrets, he shares fifteen themes to help inspire people to rise to meet today’s challenges, ignite their dreams and success.
Growing up, Joe was embarrassed by his thrift store clothing, and the rusted family car. His family was poor, and as a child he painted rocks to sell as paperweights to neighbors, his first sales gig at 8 years old. Joe learned to hustle hard to get ahead in life, and it’s the backbone of his success today.
