In 2016, Sean started his journey in the direct B2B outsourcing sales field serving one of the largest telecom companies in North America. Within a couple of months, Sean established the “Tishler Method” sales methodology which was an entrepreneurial sales style that had evolved from Direct B2B sales and real estate sales techniques. Sean has dominated his domain while coaching other individuals to reach massive success. The system expanded and slowly Sean became the leader of a massive outsource B2B operation.
