SammyV is an entrepreneur, speaker, and writer. In 2012 SammyV dropped out of college with an empty bank account hoping to prove the world wrong that you didn’t need a degree in order to be successful. After sleeping on a friends couch for six months, eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday for lunch, ramen noodles for dinner, making $8/hour working 30 hours a week, he made a decision to change his life. This decision consisted of reading every book he could find on people skills. Five months later he landed a job that required a degree and by age 24 he was in medical sales with the fastest growing book of business in his division.
After battling with depression in his early 20’s SammyV decided to start pursuing his childhood dream of being a speaker and author. Since then he’s built a successful private soccer training business, coached soccer at the college level, finished his college degree, played his last year of college soccer for a nationally ranked program, and spoke at colleges on the topics of Making Your First Impressions Matter and How to Continuously Improve.
What is Opportunity Day? While working as a Medical Sales Rep, SammyV would call every Monday Opportunity Day because he noticed that most people mentally took Monday’s off. He believed it was an Opportunity to get ahead of the competition and create momentum during the week. His mindset on Opportunity Day has gone from being every Monday to every day, as every day is an opportunity to learn, grow, become, and move forward in life.
So Happy Opportunity Day, lets learn, grow, become, and move forward in life together!
