There’s arguably no tougher mindset than that of the small business entrepreneur. What does it take to breakthrough and grow a business from the ground up?

We’re wrapping up our mindset month interviews with Brandon Bruce, COO and Co-Founder of Cirrus Insights, an all-in-one sales productivity platform with world-class Salesforce integration.

Brandon grew up in a small California town of 800 people and had only one classmate in grade school. Six years ago, he co-founded Cirrus Insight and has helped grow the company to $12m in annual revenue, 58 employees, and #41 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies.

He’s here today with massive insights into what it takes to start and grow a startup, the pitfalls to avoid and the mindset you must have.

On today’s podcast

3:30 – “sales is hard enough as it is without adding a lot of roadblocks”
6:46 – Cirrus begins out of Brandon’s struggles
11:20 – Keeping your company simple in a post-startup phase
14:11 – Do people truly want the product that your startup wants to sell?
18:00 – The scarcity mindset and focusing on what’s important as a startup
26:00 – Saying “no” sets up a brick wall for the customer
29:42 – What’s next for sales development and Cirrus
37:00 – Brandon’s “why”

138 Monday Musing: Dog Days

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Mid to late-August, the dog days of summer. It’s a saying that roots back to Roman times, popular in professional baseball and a mindest that bleeds into nearly every business around this time…especially sales.

The long hot summer days, the middle of the season, maybe your team, your company already has their playoff positioning locked up. You’re tired, you’re beaten down. We’re halfway a little more than halfway through Q3. What is going to keep you motivated?

When you’re a professional ballplayer, you keep going because that’s what you get paid to do. You get paid to perform. But in sales there’s got to be something more than that. Right?

135 Monday Musing: I.M.P.A.C.T

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Christie is busy coaching up the future speakers at TEDX Atlanta on their mindset and presentation structure. On today’s Monday Musing, Christie reveals her method for formulating powerful presentations, I.M.P.A.C.T. The best part is that it is a structure that can be applied to almost ANY task you are trying to accomplish, not just a presentation. Clear communication is invaluable in so many sales situations, networking, cold calling, follow up, the list goes on. Listen to this week’s musing and feel the full IMPACT of what structure can do for your communication skills.
