Is The Motivation To Sell Built Into Your DNA? With Elisabetta L. Faenza

Elisabetta L. Faenza joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss if the motivation that the top salespeople have to crush it each day comes innately from a person’s DNA or if it’s something that can be trained and improved over time.





How To Hack Your Sales Motivation

Elisabetta start the show with some examples from history of how the worlds greatests come in both forms; those who are naturally talented and those who have outworked the rest to make up the difference.

“It’s not that you can’t be a great salesperson, athlete or artist if you don’t have the genetic pedary but boy does it make it easy.”

They wrap up the show by taking a closer look at the neurochemicals involved in motivation (and motivating others to close deals) and how these can be leveraged day to day to get more done.

Elisabetta and Will also cover –

  • Can anyone become a world beating salesperson?
  • Why some people perhaps get it easier than others
  • How to develop your hustle muscle
  • Why some salespeople jump around to a different sales role every few years and others stick it out for the long term
  • How your personality shapes how you are motivated
  • Why play is important for all sales professionals
