The Actor & The Salesmen | Week 32
“Talk to those who are on a similar path as your own. Who knows, maybe you will learn something.” – Bryce Ward 12/12/2020
This past weekend I had the opportunity to speak with two Praxis Alumni about their Praxis experience. It was interesting to hear Nicholas and Leah’s story on why they chose to go through an apprenticeship over college and how Praxis has impacted their lives.
Before Praxis, Leah started as a young actor looking to make a life for herself. She was researching different colleges to pursue a four-year degree; however, seeing as college was finically outside of her reach, she decided against it. Instead, upon hearing about Praxis, Leah chose to partake in the program as a way for her to continue her acting career and make herself more finically independent. As a result, she is now working remotely with Impossible Foods as a Customer Onboarding Advocate. She has recently moved to New York to establish herself in the acting community there.
Nicholas started by running his first business, buying and selling precious metals. However, seeing that he needed mentorship to help him expand and grow his business. Nicholas joined Praxis to find a mentor, and that is precisely what he found. Nicholas was hired as a member of the Hapday Group’s Sales team, and after about a year of working with his Business Partner, Nicholas founded the Mastermind Army. In his new community, the Mastermind Army, he helps new salespeople perfect their craft and establish sales teams for companies all over the United States.
