Astound Your Prospects And Sell Fearlessly With Robert Terson

Robert Terson joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss how salespeople can sell more fearlessly.  





How to be fearless in sales

The show is kicked off with Robert explaining if everyone feels fear within their sales career from time to time or if some people are just lucky enough to not be held back by it.

“Your job is to astound people. To not be run of the mill!”

The show is wrapped up with Robert sharing that salespeople are not here to call, present and close. They’re here to astound the prospect. To blow them away and to really get a reaction from them.

“If you know that you have value which will help an individual, you have a responsibility to bring that value to that person.”

Robert and Will also cover –

  • Are butterflies a positive thing before a sales meeting
  • Fear is mainly the feeling of not being prepared
  • Why salespeople’s only job is to astound
  • What would happen if salespeople ceased to exist
  • Why you should be proud to be a salesperson
