Meet Jeff Riseley, after his recent experience with cancer and his relationship with mental health, Jeff decided to bring his wisdom into his passion for training and leading sales teams. Now he brings a mental health lens that focuses on best practices to promote resilience and wellbeing among sales teams. The difference with Jeff is that he actually cares deeply about people’s health rather than the $$ behind their work. He recently founded Top Gun Sales to continue his mission.
Jeff has also launched the Sales Health Institute as he pursues helping to create a healthier and happier workplace.
On this episode of the podcast, Jesse Bigelow talks about his experience growing up and how a relatively ‘normal’ upbringing could never have prepared him for the onslaught of mental illness and the development of schizophrenia. He describes the onset of his symptoms and how he went about getting help and how much he learned through the process of recovery.
