Mike Claudio

I have spent the last 17 years not just selling products and services but learning how to go out and actually develop business, create routines and consistency, develop discipline, and make a bigger impact on those around me then just money!

My sales and management career started in retail with Verizon Wireless before working in their enterprise business to business sales team. During my time in Corporate America, I was given some of the best training in the world and really developed an obsession-like energy for consistency, communication and the client experience.

While my formal training is in the corporate setting, I’ve always been pulled towards smaller companies where I could work with entrepreneurs to help them bring big changes to grow their business. I was a great salesman, but I found my love and passion for the people, processes and services of the construction industry. When I was given the opportunity to work with a residential general contracting business in Charlotte, I jumped at the idea of using my experiences and training to help create a sales and client management system specific for this market.

I have proven my system and processes to Identify, Target, Qualify and Acquire clients works. With a heavy focus on communication, follow-through, and follow-up I believe any company can increase sales and profits and I want to be the one to help you do that!

I brought massive success to companies I worked for but want to help more business owners get out of the daily grind and develop a business that worked for them instead of wearing them out. Since starting WinRate Consulting I have helped hundreds of paying clients and 10’s of thousands of business owners through my free online content on my podcast and YouTube channel.

I have been on dozens of stages and spoken in front of thousands of people to get the message across that YOU can be different and YOU can dream bigger and YOU can make it come to life! At this point I am 100% confident I can help any size business improve, I can help any owner or leader create better habits and a more disciplined life, and I can change the culture of a company into a place people want to work instead of constant frustrations and lack of buy in!
