Why not reach out and give people the opportunity to care about us rather than spamming them with templated crappy emails or cold calls…?

Sean shares that qualifying new business isn’t just a process it’s a mindset. Additionally he explains –

  • Why most salespeople suck at qualification
  • That you shouldn’t just give out free industry consultation sessions to anyone that asks
  • A bunch of examples of how you can “add value” to the C-suite
