Eric Konovalov is an immigrant, refugee, who’s family fled communist Russia in the early 90’s. Though they left physically, Eric grew up seeing how his parents’ communist mindset and belief systems were behind all of their decision making, which led to struggle and lack of freedom to do what they dreamt of doing.

Eric wanted something better for his life and set out to achieve it. After spending 8 wonderful years with the United States Marines, Eric excelled in the field of sales and sales leadership.

Today, Eric’s motivation is the same as it was when he was a little kid. It’s to live free and to help others live their version of freedom as well. That’s why he founded The Goal Guide Inc, a coaching, public speaking, and training organization, focusing on helping people achieve their goals, live out their dreams, and become the most amazing version of themselves.

He is the host of Lead Sell Grow – The Human Experience Podcast, and the Author of B2B Sales Secrets.

Eric has helped people lose weight, improve their marriage, make more money, learn to sell, and start their own business. He’s helped people realize what they’re capable of, and he’s helped set people free from their invisible shackles.

He is the coach that will always see more in you than you see in yourself. Best of all, he has the ability to show you your own greatness.
