Our guest this week is, Dan Jourdan, the Sales Energizer. Dan is a former consultant with Smith Barney, an expert Dale Carnegie speaker/coach and Gitomer Licensed Trainer.
Dan’s sales methodology often bridges the gap between “what people think they should do” and “what really works.” His sales philosophy is a cross between Confucius and Robin Williams.
He joined us for a deep dive all about how to execute on cold calls. It’s not something that many love to do but it can be a necessary step in your prospecting process. Dan gives you some crucial advice for making cold calls work for you by overcoming your hesitation and engaging the prospect.
