Good Sales Habits (And Why Sales Should Do Standup Comedy) With Butch Bellah

Butch Bellah joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss how we can make sales easier by instilling good sales habits.





How To Create Great Sales Habits

The show starts with Will asking Butch to define what a habit is, how long they take to become second nature and then what specific habits salespeople should be aiming to implement.

“Rain runs a path through a canyon one drop at a time”

Will then finishes the show by diving into Butch’s fascination with stand up comedy and how this skill relates to sales.
