How lucky would you feel to be one of the first people to discover Twitter, Facebook or Snapchat? You’d probably have a better username! Our guest today, David Masover, was one of the first one million members of LinkedIn and since then has become an expert coach and mentor with a specialty in social media. He’s also the author of two books on the sales process.
David Masover was thrown into his first sales job almost 30-years ago with no sales training at all, and struggled to find his own way to success through self-study, experimentation and the sheer force of stubborn determination. No he helps people find a MUCH easier path.
Today we talk about social media. How it’s used AND how it’s abused. Not all content is created equally. David’s story is one of trial and error and he’s ready to share his mistakes so that you can succeed.
