We all know that part of having a successful business is selling, but most of us cringe at the sound of the word “sales.” Today’s show will teach you how to embrace the reality of selling, including getting past the mindset issues that some of us have around selling ourselves and our services. Come join the conversation to learn more from today’s expert guest!

Catherine Brown is the author of How Good Humans Sell: The Proven Path to B2B Sales Success. As a veteran of 25+ years of B2B (business to business) selling, she understands what it means to build a business during challenging times. She launched her first sales consulting firm in 2003, and now runs the sales training firm, Extra Bold Sales, where she coaches others to sell with confidence. Her sales system includes psychology research that gets to the heart of why people don’t sell effectively, and she trains on the reasons people buy. With honesty and transparency, Catherine shares insights about her sales process that take the frustration and worry out of business development, along with how we can apply our coaching methods to our sales.
