All About The Hustle With Steli Efti

Steli Efti joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss sales hustle and why it’s the only thing that will guarantee your success as a salesman.






Why searching for more “no's” works

The show is kicked off by diving into Steli’s background and then I ask him if he believes he is a natural born salesman.

“I have a high tolerance for pain which surely helps in sales” – Steli Efti

The show is wrapped up with Steli explaining that no human being is perfect, everyone gets down in the dumps but it’s the salespeople who are willing to pull themselves back out of it that succeed.

Steli and Will also cover –

  • Is there such thing as a natural born salesperson?
  • Why your levels of hustle are the only thing that matters
  • Will's RX8 and the problems he's had with it
  • How to become higher energy
  • The steps to taking more sales action day on day
