198: Get Passionate Or GTFO! With Jim Keenan


Sales expert Jim Keenan comes on today’s show to give us all the kick in the ass that we need.

I wanted to discuss the idea that passion helps close deals but Keenan took it one step further.

He’s amendment that if you’re not passionate about sales, your product and the difference you’re making in the world then you need to get the f$$k out.

We spend too much time in our jobs not to be passionate about the impact where having. Cliche I know but life is just too short. 

PS. Being passionate does make closing deals easier :).
