SammyV is a college drop out, turned medical sales rep, turned writer, speaker, and entrepreneur. He hosts the Millennial Stores w/ SammyV podcast, speaks at colleges, universities, and high schools on how to succeed in life after college, and runs his own private soccer training business. After battling with depression in his early to mid 20’s he decided to quit is Medical Sales job, start his own business, and pursue his lifelong dream of being a speaker, writer, and author.
SammyV’s personal definition of success is continuous improvement. At age 20 he was sleeping on a friends couch, eating two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday for lunch, Campbells Soup or ramen noodles for dinner, working 30 hours a week making $8/hour, and unable to get a good paying job. At that point he decided to become obsessed with improvement in every area of his life. Four months later he was able to get a job that required a degree without one. 14 months after that he was able to get a job working for a medical supply company where he worked for a little over two years and became one of the top sales reps in the company.
With what felt like “success” for a 23-24 year old, he found himself battling with depression. Almost every day after work he would head to the bar up the street from his apartment to drink on his own. During this time what he found was that he needed to find his life’s mission and purpose. Again, through a process of self-discovery and continuing to focus on improvement, SammyV decided to leave his sales job, start his own private soccer training business and chase his dream of becoming a speaker, writer, and thought leader.
Now he runs a successful private soccer training business, speaks at colleges, universities, and high schools to help prepare young people for life after school, is writing a book, and hosts the Millennial Stories w/ SammyV Podcast and YouTube show.
