Few people grow up dreaming of being a salesperson

It would be wonderful if you just hung a sign out, opened your doors and customers came.  Unfortunately, for most of us that’s not how it works.  And so, even though we didn’t start our business envisioning the excitement of sales, it comes with the job. 

I have had some exceptional conversations with people talking very different approaches to sales.  Maybe one of these will work for you! 

a few of my favorite conversations

Salespeople will be more successful when they believe in the product and are able to authentically engage with customers, focusing on solving a problem.

about the show

It started as a conversation with friends. When someone would drop by Roundpeg, Lorraine would pull out her iPhone and record a bit of banter. From those first, informal interactions with local marketing professionals, authors, and entrepreneurs, More than a Few Words, a marketing podcast was born.

Over the last decade, we’ve experimented with lots of formats including 30-minute live episodes, complete with a call-in number and a real-time Twitter feed. There were half-baked marketing ideas, conversations with marketing celebrities, lots of laughs, and good information along the way.

Today, the ten-minute conversations are heard by business owners around the world looking for practical tips and a little bit of marketing inspiration.
