For the last year or so, I’ve typically shared a sample story from the Sales Success Stories book or the B2B Sales mentors book between the interview episodes that we released every two weeks. Today, with the Sales Success Summit just over a month away, I thought I’d share this conversation I recently had with Christie Walters and Jeff Bajorek on their podcast called The Why & The Buy.
Give a listen and let me know what you think, and if you enjoy their show, do yourself a favor and subscribe to The Why & The Buy in your favorite podcast app.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” — Jim Rohn
Who are you spending the most time with? Are they successful? Are they a positive influence? If you want success but don’t surround yourself with it, it’s like wanting water in a desert. That’s why we’re welcoming back Scott Ingram, host of the Sales Success Stories Podcast and founder of the Sales Success Summit.
Sales conferences should be a great place to network and build relationships that can lead to future success. But too often these conferences are simply okay with existing and don’t provide enough value to attendees before and after the conference. Those gaps are the driving force behind the Sales Success Summit and a central part of Scott’s “why.”
Stay tuned for more information about this powerful event and get a glimpse into the five people that make the most impact on Jeff, Christie, and Scott.
