What Is Relationship Selling with Jim Cathcart

Jim Cathcart joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss relationship selling. 





Relationship Selling

The show is kicked off with Jim defining exactly what relationship selling is and how it’s STILL the basis for all salespeople even with the changes the internet has made to the industry.

 Yes you are your own personal brand. Yes you are the owner of your own personal services corporation and you are under contract with your current employer. You are in charge of your own career.”

The show is wrapped up by sharing the importance of having an abundance mentality in both sales and life in general.

Jim and Will also cover –
