Account Manager and All-Star Dad: Meet Caleb Sanders

In business, they say the best way to fail is to fail upwards. It was Colin Davis who once said, “the road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.” This is the attitude we instill in our team members and our model of success. Do not fear failure, the only sure way to fail is to cease trying. Our team members come from all backgrounds and all walks of life. There is no set model of what an Imperium Elite employee looks like, or what experience they may have. Our top priority is the existence of a student mentality – the ability to try, and fail, and try again differently.

Imperium Elite is just that – elite. That comes from our team members who come into the office each and every day, ready to take on adversity. Caleb Sanders is no different. The account manager joined our team on August 1st of this year and the near two months he has spent with us have been filled with milestones and achievements. In this employee spotlight, we want to share with the world just how incredible this entrepreneur is.

Born in Plano, Caleb Sanders was raised in Rockwall, Texas – just a stone’s throw away from our Houston office. Sanders came across the Imperium Elite opportunity via an online recruiting platform and was immediately curious. That curiosity is what brought him into the office, and that curiosity turned into drive within seconds. “I was so inspired by the model of daily coaching that I saw in the Imperium Elite office,” says Sanders, “with any job there are challenges, and here I struggle with the delayed gratification of this industry, but it is a growing experience like anything else.”

It was Friedrich Nietzsche that said, “in family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” At the heart of Caleb Sanders’ drive is love for his family. “My proudest moment in life is the day I become a dad,” says Sanders, “the single thing that motivates me is the desire to become the hero my kids see in me.” If he won the lottery, Sanders says he would pledge his money charitably, “I would create a foster care non-profit that develops entrepreneurial skills.”

Sales and marketing is not an easy market to break into, and it is definitely not for the faint of heart. To make it in this industry, it truly takes blood, sweat, and tears, and the first few years for young entrepreneurs can be scrappy. His advice for young entrepreneurs is simple, “fail often and early.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
