In 2001 and fresh out of college, Marcus Sheridan stumbled across his first business with two friends and began installing swimming pools out of the back of a beat-up pickup truck. 9 years later, and with the help of incredible innovations through inbound and content marketing, Sheridan’s company overcame the collapse of the housing market and became one of the largest pool installers in the U.S. and currently has the most visited swimming pool web site in the world – www.RiverPoolsandSpas.com
With such success, in late 2009, Sheridan started his sales/marketing/and personal development blog— The Sales Lion, and has since grown The Sales Lion brand to be synonymous with inbound and content marketing excellence. In fact, in 2013 the New York Times ran a story on Marcus and referred to him as a “Web Marketing Guru.”
Today, when Sheridan is not giving riveting and passion-filled keynotes around the globe or consulting with businesses and brands, he finds himself on an adventure with his wife and 4 children.
