During this time he developed the More GCI Agent Management Portal. This SaaS helped agents to business plan, goal track and grow their business. After helping that market center he went on a journey to grow More GCI. That journey has led him across the country to speak and train at large, medium and small venues. His purpose in this journey is too reduce the attrition rate of agents and help them be the best they can in all verticals of life.
