James Harper was the host of "Two Cents Worth" and Angel Sandoval was the host of the "Sales Rehab" show. The two shows focused on sales and personal development and actually competed against each other in a productive way. James invited Angel to be a guest on his show and a friendship was formed. They decided to join forces under the common belief that 'Sales Saved My Life'.
Both were excellent interviewers. Angel was interested in his guests and was a very good at knowing where to dig deeper based on inflection and tonality. This soft skill was learned in the trenches of sales and cold-calling. James has always been amazing at connecting really smart people together. He plays point guard to the conversation and then gets out of the way. James is a master connector and Angel is a master of reading the room. Putting these two skills together is the foundation of the powerhouse today called Day Porter and the Profitable Cleaner Podcast.
Angel was born in Mexico City and came to the US to El Paso, TX at 10 years old. He developed a huge dream to learn English and Naturalize. It took him 8 years. He graduated with a marketing degree from UTEP and was an aspiring ballet dancer. James was born in Denver, CO. He dealt with a lot of grief, anger, and drugs and faced 2 – 5 years in prison. He found sales in a Halfway House. Sales was the only career that would take him.
Angel created a mission to help those without mainstream options to get into selling through SWITCH (Sell With Intention to Create Happiness).
"My initial motivation was fear. I lived in fear a lot of my life. How do you combat fear with comfortability, especially when you're the weakest one? You got to make a connection and learn to blend." – James Harper
Angel shares his creation process that propelled him in the dance world and how that helped him as an entrepreneur. You start with creation and tell a story throughout the dance. This story gets perfected and marketed. You need to test the creation to see how it hits with audiences, then feedback to make it better. I loved this mindset.
"I brought Survival Mode with me for many years. But I had to change because Survival Mode brings scarcity. It serves you, but you need to evolve from that." – James Harper
"Most of us don't actually go through a rough life and that's okay. Whatever card you get dealt in life, you roll with. Don't let someone else's difficult path discourage you from trying it." – Angel Sandoval
Angel, James & Ken dive into our Christian testimonies and have church! Multiple topics come up that you need to hear like Humility & Gratefulness, Stewardship, Good for Orderly Direction (GOD),
"I feel that once you encounter God, there's no way not to believe in God." – Angel
"Stewardship is not just money. We are called to steward money, time, health, and relationships." – Angel
"When I look at my life, there is no logical way how things have played out. If I do try to put logic to it, the only answer I can put to it is God I've tried to prove God wrong and I just can't." – James
"Illogical Moments Lead to Logical Faith." – Angel
