88: Josh Braun: How to Sell without Selling your Soul
Show Notes

My guest today is Josh Braun. Josh is one of the leading voices on LinkedIn on all things Sales, and I love having conversations with Sales trainers because I think sales skills are life skills. 

I have been following Josh for quite some time now, and his advice is always fluffless and on point. I had a feeling that Josh would be a pretty great podcast guest, but when I saw Josh’s past career, especially in education (Josh is a qualified Elementary school teacher, or as we call it here in Europe, Primary school) I KNEW he’d make a great guest. 

In this conversation PACKED with so many powerful stories, Josh shares:

- How he chose Teaching as a Career, got hired at this first teaching job and how he infused tech into the classroom in the 1990's

- How Josh pivoted from Teaching to Sales and the transferable skills that helped him to successfully make that shift

- Why Josh started his own sales training firm and how he got hired by his very first paid client

- Favourite advice that can work in parallel to help someone whether in Sales or a career transition

- His unique perepective on rejection

We even did a demo where I pretended to be an annoyed prospect and Josh was cold calling me!

This is such a good conversation, you don't want to miss it!
