Ryan is joined by Michael Brooks in this episode. Michael is both the founder and ceo of goLance, a freelancer platform that is both fully remote and staffed completely by freelancers. Michael talks to Ryan about how they differentiate themselves from other freelancer platforms, what he has managed to build through the power of relationships, communication and trust as well as the highs and lows of having a fully remote, fully freelance team. KEY TAKEAWAYS GoLance try and provide as much value as they can on places like Quora, LinkedIn and in Facebook communities, they find this is a great way to market themselves and the acquire a lot of clients and referrals this way. GoLance works like a recruitment agency except it's all digital and all jobs and candidates are freelancers. They differentiate themselves from other freelancer platforms by assuring quality. There is a lot of cultural work attached to what goLance do, they don't simply match jobs to freelancers, they ensure the culture fit is right as well as the experience level and communication style. Pricing at goLance works similar to Airbnb, they charge a flat rate of 7.9% which represents great value to both client and freelancer. Some freelancer platforms, such as Upwork, are very transactional and they are also strict about how communication between freelancers and companies takes place. Golance are a lot more open and transparent, they want communication to flow and take place as it should so have little restriction on what is and isn't allowed. Michael isn't frightened to turn down business or capital that he knows doesn't work for goLance. It's more important to him to get the right fit and work with people that align with the values and culture of goLance. For a 7-year old company, getting to 40 million plus revenue is exciting, but something Michael also finds incredible is the fact that some of goLance's freelancers have earnt 7 figures with them in this time too! A hands-on approach to managing relationships and their freelancers is something Michael is keen to keep going at goLance. It allows them to have complete control over the process and the quality for their clients too. Having a human being reach out and connect with you, giving you answers you need, is so much more effective than ad-spend. Giving value on Quora and similar sites has been a winning strategy for goLance. When you're in touch with your market, you can drive your business to meet their needs. Find a problem in your industry, look at how your competitors are addressing the problem, then look to see how you can solve it. Building a remote culture, especially with a fully freelance team can be a challenge but there are ways to make it easier, such as having multiple interviews with prospective freelancers and finding creative ways to make them feel part of your company.  BEST MOMENTS  “Providing value is the best marketing one can do” “No one feels hurt, everyone feels like they have a lot of value” “We want to build relationships that last forever” “You can drive your business by understanding the responses of your community” “Find creative ways to create culture and give people a sense that their part of your company”   Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets   Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io    EPISODE RESOURCES https://blog.golance.com/author/michael-a-brooks/ https://pr.linkedin.com/in/michaelabrooks https://www.amazon.co.uk/REMOTE-Freelancers-Thriving-Business-Anywhere-ebook/dp/B08DM7VT5D   ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

Brandon Gilbert decided to put his business and mechanical engineering background to work in his own company when he started the Pittsburgh Mobile Tire Shop. After numerous subpar experiences at traditional repair stores, he decided that there had to be a better way to provide this important service. Low startup costs and lack of competition in the region enticed Brandon to launch a mobile operation where he could bring the tire shop directly to his customers. In this relaxing and low-pressure environment, people are free to ask questions and develop trust and rapport with him and his staff.Although Brandon became disenfranchised from years of corporate politics, he still needed to overcome the fear of starting his own business. Easing into it by working on it part time helped him to build the confidence to step out on his own. Today, he is leading a thriving operation in an economy that is looking for convenience more than ever before. He recently opened a brick-and-mortar location to expand his service offerings and to compliment his mobile business. When you listen to our conversation you can tell just how seriously Brandon takes customer service and doing a quality job.If you have any questions or if you'd like to chat, you can reach me at my contact info below.

David is a bestselling author and a rebranding expert, helping multiple companies transform their business all through the power of branding. He joins Ryan in this episode to share the techniques he uses, the many things he has learnt in his 40+ years of experience and talks about why simply meeting your customers' expectations is never enough. KEY TAKEAWAYS David started in the world of branding 40+ years ago. The interesting advantage he has with this wealth of experience is being able to see first hand the timeless things that have always worked. The fundamentals of branding don't change but if you pay close attention you can change and pivot to leverage what will work right now. You shouldn't always be tactical with branding, David goes deep into companies touchpoints to see what real problems they are having so they can recognise what to focus on. Very few companies do post sale branding. But it exceeds the customers experience level and creates brand loyalty. Everything is automated now. Think about what parts of your sales process you can humanise to give your customer a better experience. Great branding is often compiled of a variety of small little things, rather than something big. Try and anticipate your customers next need, don't just focus on the buyer's journey but your customers whole journey. Allowing you to create customers that come back to you time and time again. Just meeting a customers expectations is not enough, that is the bare minimum. Think about what you are doing that can impact a customer on a day to day basis and are if there is a way you can add an element of surprise. David transformed the company KnowBe4 from zero to a billion dollar ‘unicorn' company in just 8 years through his branding techniques. Look at your market, look at what everyone is the space is doing and what's expected, then find ways to go beyond that, to become remarkable and impossible to ignore.   BEST MOMENTS  “Being thick skinned enough to have passionate impartiality, you've got to be strong enough to look objectively” “That whole big picture look can sometimes be at the sacrifice of little things that impact everyday decisions and the customer experience” “What more are we doing to add value of a day to day basis as well as what I call the elements of surprise” “We're all in the business of helping customers, prospect, to come to new conclusions and they're not going to come to new conclusions with old information” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets   Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io    EPISODE RESOURCES https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidbrier https://www.risingabovethenoise.com https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brand-Intervention-Steps-Transform-Have/dp/0999529706   ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

On today's episode of the podcast I'm announcing the brand new business I'm launching! I didn't want to do it until I was sure it was something I could commit to and stick with. I also wanted it to be something that made me money. I've had ideas of things I want to do, like becoming an AAU basketball coach or starting a new Instagram account about entrepreneurs who are also an Enneagram 7, but at this time, I need something that could bring in serious revenue. I knew I wasn't ready to start something new until thought my current business was ready to make it happen. For me, this meant my current business had hit a certain level of monthly recurring revenue so I can rely on it to pay my salary and the business can continue to sustain itself with the help of systems in place. My business is in a sustainable place without needing to continually reinvent the wheel. I've had this new business idea for awhile, and my current business is finally at a place where I feel ready to start a second business. Introducing, Drag Tax, the tax firm for drag queens, kings, professionals and LGBTQ+ entertainers. I am a huge fan of RuPaul's Drag Race and through research I saw there was really no one marketing their tax services specifically for drag entertainers. So I ordered some business cards and headed to RuPaul's Drag Con to network. I've alluded to the business throughout past episodes, so are some things I've been working on behind the scenes: - I spoke with entertainers at Drag Con to meet potential guests for my podcast - I hired Ally from Gizbow Creative to design branding for me (she did my Profit Rx branding). I gave her on-brand imagery and color codes and designed the branding through a VIP day - Started a YouTube channel and a podcast. - Scheduled my brand photo shoot for October with a Palm Springs vibe, lounging by the pool. The tagline is "Taxes are a drag, hire us to help," and this shoot will allow you to imagine how stress-free your life could be if your taxes were all set. - I worked with my first client on two years' worth of book keeping - I'm currently studying for the Enrolled Agent test. This exam certifies you to do IRS-related work like filing taxes and handling back taxes. I don't want to become an EA, but I always believe in having the knowledge of doing something when hiring someone to do it or so I can do it myself if someone were to quit. Now that I'm running a more service-based business I'll be able to give you even more details on this podcast about the business side of running a service-based business. I'm looking forward to share more (including all the financial details as part on our profit report).

Patrick is the founder and ceo of Profitwell, who recently sold resulting in a joint venture with the company Paddle. Profitwell offer a suite of tools that plug directly into subscription management systems, optimising pricing strategies, revenue recognition and more! Patrick talks to Ryan all about the pricing strategies he has used to increase revenue as well as his unique 3-step go to market strategy. He also talks about the tactics he has used to grow Profitwell including giving away free subscription financial metrics to over 30,000 companies!   KEY TAKEAWAYS There are only around 150,000 subscription and Saas companies and Profitwell used this small market to their advantage by brand building and content marketing. When your pool of potential clients is small then you have to market to reflect this, generally focusing on high lifetime value and high retention. Automation is the future for Saas b2b product. Clients want a simple plug-in software to do the work for them so they can focus on their customers, product and higher value tasks. In all businesses there are resilient stages and endurance stages. If you can recognise which one you are in you can then choose the right ways to deal with your challenges. The way Profitwell ran their BDR was unique in the industry. They decided to run all messaging through their growth team, rather than relying on inexperienced sales reps. They also built-in unique content to their core marketing strategy, including video and podcasts. 80% of Profitwells dollars come from inbound, this meant it took them time to work on their referral programme because they didn't need to rely on it, something Patrick recognises as a missed opportunity. When developing their middle funnel marketing, Profitwell ensured they focused either on personas they were targeting, or they targeted the ‘need' or ‘pain point'. The way to think about pricing is to concentrate on anything that improves your revenue per customer, for this there are a large amount of levers, including the obvious price increases but also things like add-on strategies and value metrics.     BEST MOMENTS  “When you have a small pool your go to market has to reflect that” “We automate your retention and the tactical side of the retention…we're the best in the world at recovering failed payments, we're the best in the world at cancellation flows, a bunch of these things” “We just reinvested every dollar we made back into the business and grew from there” “Discount doesn't really move the needle until it's a massive discount” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets   Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io    EPISODE RESOURCES https://www.linkedin.com/in/patrickccampbell https://www.profitwell.com/test-tear-down-install/author/patrick-campbell   ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

Mark also talks about the importance of taking your time with the hiring process, why Proof Analytics are renowned for mixed marketing and the evolution of the SAAS market. KEY TAKEAWAYS Proof Analytics is one of the world best and fastest automated revenue marketing and optimisation platform. Customers are generally having substantial trust issues with saas companies, so are moving away from annual contracts and looking at more shorter-term, flexible solutions. Proof Analytics allow customers to pay just $45 a month, this has resulted in them shortening their sales closing time from 6-9 months to just 2 weeks! Being one of the first to automate market-mix modelling, has allowed proof Analytics to really dominate the space. Hiring the right people is imperative to create a great company. Mark and Proof Analytics focus on getting the right people with the right values and don't compromise. They want to ensure the team are fully aligned with their values and act in accordance with these. You should hire slowly and take the time to get the right people. You can then fire quickly if needed, if they aren't right for the role, particularly in a start-up, then cut your losses. The brand work alongside the lower cost base of a monthly subscription has allowed Proof Analytics to grow substantially.   BEST MOMENTS  “Customers are moving away from annual contracts” “We're renowned in the area of market-mix modelling” “The natural human tendency is to be expedient” “You have to hire slow and terminate quickly”   Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets   Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io    EPISODE RESOURCES www.proofanalytics.ai   ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

CEO and founder of Postie Dave Fink joins Ryan in this episode. Postie is a software company that integrates direct mail with digital marketing to create powerful campaigns. They are a self-proclaimed ‘sneaky big company' and have 3x their revenue year upon year upon year! Dave talks all about this success, how Postie was built and hypothesises that sales tactics and marketing hacks aren't enough to build a long-lasting successful company, that simply put, a great product and service builds success. He also discusses why direct mail is one of the best kept secrets in marketing and utilising this with his team's wealth of tech and marketing experience led them to where they are today. KEY TAKEAWAYS Through Posties own growth and profit they have been able to behave like a late series B company. Up to a year and a half ago Postie spent $0 in marketing! They relied on a very talented sales team and reputation. More recently, marketing and good storytelling began to back up Dave and his company's hypothesis that they weren't just a good sales company, they now use a variety of marketing tactics, including content marketing, which has transformed them into a marketing-led organisation. Posties was built on the foundations of direct mail. Direct mail is an incredibly scaleable channel that is data rich but what it often lacks is speed and optimisation. So, Dave and his team built the technology to make DM dynamic! Originally bootstrapped, Posties sourced funding in 2017 but they have built and grown to a late series b company without needing another round of funding since. Posties recognise themselves as unique in the market, they are a channel management solution focused on software, workflow and support but with better targeting, simpler execution and better measurement. Long hours, hard work and lots of trial and error created Posties success. They simply built a great product that solved a pain point that enough of the market had and then worked on it, providing great service along the way. BEST MOMENTS  “We're performance driven, we're quant[ative] minded, we want control over the optimisation of our media spend” “Let's build ad-serving tech to empower marketers that expect a lot” “If we did not have a great product market fit, the ability to deliver on what we were selling I don't think any sales tactic would work” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io EPISODE RESOURCES https://postie.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidlfink ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

Well have we got a cracker of an episode for you this week?! Lynsey and Anna are joined by the lovely Kerry from Aim High Social Kerry is a Social Media Management Expert specialising in Instagram and specifically content creation, engagement, strategy planning and jargon busting!  On this episode we delve into Kerry's journey from being made redundant from the BBC whilst on maternity and after having another child, deciding that she would like to return to work but not in the ''bums on seats 9-5'' corporate way. Instead she utilised her expertise and re-trained via Digital Mums as a Strategic Social Media Manager. The training allowed her to create her own company that was flexible and worked around her want to be a hands on mum to her two children. In 2017 she began working with clients (small business owners) on how to develop content and strategy for their IG presence . In this episode Kerry talks about the importance of social media and really its ''non-negotiable-ness'' when it comes to small business owners and their marketing. Kerry offers some de-bunking when it comes to the algorithm and gives three excellent tips on how to stop the major overwhelm of having an IG account and creating content - when this is not your expertise or main focus! The last tip is our favourite, and we welcomed it immensely!! We also discuss the notion of 'consistency' and Kerry's view points on this are extremely important as small business owners and we believe that you will agree entirely and breathe a large sigh of relief. Kerry gives ideas on how to stop losing the joy of IG by becoming more objective and goal led rather than 'keeping up appearances ' - which we might all feel we need to do. We also lapped up Kerry's ideas on how to brainstorm content by searching for inspiration and being more customer led and listening rather than willy-nilly no direction posting. The episode ends on a controversial question asked by Anna - so make sure you stick around for that!! If you would like to work with Kerry she has multiple options that might tickle your fancy: - you can follow along with her on IG @AimHighSocial - sign up to her newsletter where she offers weekly tips, news and advice about IG + you can also get access to 20 content ideas for FREE - and you can also get access to all Kerry's group, 1:1 and course services on her website here ______________________ To get your hands on our Email Newsletter Planner click here If you find this episode helpful we would love it if you could share it with a friend who might also benefit from hearing the things we talk about today.

Shaunak Roy joins Ryan in this episode. Shaunak is the CEO and founder of Yellowdig, an active learning platform adopted by hundreds of colleges and universities. Yellowdig have a unique approach to sales and revenue, they use what they call the B2B to C Model, with a majority inbound sales method and work alongside the distinctive traits of the education space to grow and scale. KEY TAKEAWAYS Yellowdig creates connected learning environments, regardless of where students/teachers are located. It creates a unique user experience that doesn't exist online or a physical classroom either. Shaunak had always known he wanted to start his own company, he also knew that if he did create a company he wanted it to be scalable. This is why he wanted to create  problem-solving technology. Shaunak started to learn everything he could about building a product, business models and the education space. It was a tremendous learning experience for him as he started to build Yellowdig. Yellowdig's first product wasn't a success but the schools loved the concept, so they went back to the drawing board to make it better. Yellowdig are a B2B to C company. This means that they go directly to the user of their technology and give them a pilot. If they then like this, they then use them to champion the school/administrator to buy the product. The majority of Yellowdig's leads are inbound, via faculty members referring and user webinars. As the education sector trust largely on referrals, Yellowdig are careful not to be to ‘salesy' towards them. This is a group that doesn't like to feel like they are being sold to. Gathering useful feedback from users is essential to Yellowdig's progress. Education is a very impact driven space to they want to ensure they can give all the facts and measures to their clients. BEST MOMENTS  “I've always wanted to start a company which is why I did” “The B2C to C is essentially an extension of B2B” “Raising money is a big question, especially for saas companies” "It's a change in mindset, a lot of institutions are old school so you have to be patient with them" Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io EPISODE RESOURCES https://www.linkedin.com/in/shaunak-roy-65231b https://www.yellowdig.co/profile/88adc34e-9c40-41eb-9adc-5f06046ad8e8/profile ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

Julie Brinkman, CEO at Beyond Pricing, joins Ryan in this episode to talk all about her passion for business growth and the unique strategies and capital principles she has applied to different markets across the years. She has gained a wealth of experience including a role as CEO in a HR start-up and holding senior positions in global company Groupon. Most recently she has taken Beyond Pricing from a struggling position at the peak of covid and led them to 100% YOY growth. Join Ryan and Julie in this episode for some great takeaways on capital growth and business strategy. KEY TAKEAWAYS Beyond Pricing gives short-term rental managers and owners the tools to grow revenue. The world of short-term rentals have changed during and since the pandemic. It's had to cope with these fast changes but Julie and her team have managed to stay ahead. Beyond Pricing has two distinct growth functions, product-led growth strategy and a traditional direct-sales model, depending on the client they are trying to attain. Beyond Pricing have to manage their products for vastly different spectrums of the short-term rental market, from one of the biggest property managers in the US to individuals who just have one singular property. They have to tailor their products for each of their individual client's needs. Julie spent 10 years at financial advisory firm DeloItte, she then decided she needed to work somewhere more dynamic and applied for a role at Groupon. This is where she learnt about how to manage a great sales team but also gained the passion for business growth and strategy. Julie wanted to see what she could do at a smaller business, which is when she made the decision moved to a role at the HR start-up Hirerology, before moving onto her role now at Beyond Pricing. Blue sky thinking is something Julie believes in and attributes it to a lot of success she has found in business, including at start-ups, because of the belief that anything is possible. Beyond Pricing are not a traditional subscription model business, clients subscribe to them and then they take a percentage of sales. This means they grow with the market but are also incentivised in the same way as their clients. During the pandemic, Julie and her team focused on retention and strategies that would help their clients through this difficult time. They kept their customers in mind in every decision they made. BEST MOMENTS  “We acquired them through a product-led growth strategy” “There are a lot of parallels between saas and running your own short-term rental business” “I got really addicted to growing a business, setting strategies and hitting goals” “I let my results speak for themselves” “I don't think you can run start-ups unless you think anything is possible” “Those companies that deliver real value to customers in a real way will survive” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io EPISODE RESOURCES https://www.beyondpricing.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/jrbrinkman ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

Miro is a former software engineer turned tech-founder based in Bulgaria and is the co-founder and CEO of OfficeRnD, a leading software company specialising in products to help people to work flexibly. Miro runs a 100% inbound company and in this episode he shares exactly how he achieved this. If you are wanting to grow and/or looking at lead generation then this is the episode for you! KEY TAKEAWAYS OfficeRnD is a global company with offices in Bulgaria, Australia and the UK. One of OfficeRnD's core products is flex, which solves most of the issues with co-working spaces by focusing on member experience. Another one of their products allows companies to be more flexible in their workplace strategies, enabling them and their staff to use their offices in a more flexible way. OfficeRnD went through an accelerator programme which both Miro and his partner found incredibly helpful. It gave them motivation and aided them in finding the right problems to try and solve. It was essential that Miro and his partner researched and spoke to customers before developing their software, they needed to ensure they were trying to solve a problem that existed. At the beginning, OfficeRnD focused on content marketing, using blog posts to gain customers. Alongside this they also answered and gave information to users on Reddit and Quora. This is how they began their 100% inbound business. OfficeRnD furthered their inbound rate by focusing on seo, including building high quality content around ‘quick win' keywords and getting on other blog lists and recommendations. The next step is for Miro and his team is to systemise their referral programme and put in a solid framework, they believe in the strength of word of mouth, especially in their niche and small market. Miro's advice for those looking to create a second product is to give it as much autonomy as you can, so it can truly grow and meet its potential. BEST MOMENTS  “Our software helps teams synchronise their schedules and arrive in the office on days they want to or need to” “Engineers usually develop solutions for problems that many times they just don't exist” “If you're a first time founder…the high quality accelerators [programmes] can be extremely beneficial” “I love word of mouth, it's a small market, a niche market that we are in we try and do everything we can to make our customers happy” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io EPISODE RESOURCES https://www.officernd.com/blog/author/miro/ ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC backed company without taking on investors?

Jason DeRose was working as a strength and conditioning coach for a local high school in 2005 when it became the focus of a nationally televised reality show on ESPN. The football team, which was once the pride of its Pittsburgh-area community, was on a perennial losing streak. This all turned around once Dick Butkus and other NFL and top collegiate coaching and training talent entered the picture to lead the team for one season. Jason soaked up this opportunity to learn all that he could, and a trip to San Diego for additional training inspired him to launch Faster Fitness, an athletic performance center with two Pittsburgh regional locations.In 2015, Jason was accused of physically assaulting another employee at the high school where he was employed. He maintained his innocence and took his case all the way to trial where he was acquitted of any wrongdoing. Although he was reinstated in the school district, this unfortunate experience caused him to shift his focus to his rapidly growing gym business. A self-proclaimed supplement fanatic, Jason was always on the lookout for new products to offer his personal training clients. It was by chance that he was introduced to someone in the supplement industry, and the seed was planted for what would become Gymsupps in 2017.If you have any questions or if you'd like to chat, you can reach me at my contact info below.

In this episode Mike tackles the first of the Four R's of Smart Sales Talent Management:  Right People in the Right Roles and he introduces the concept of zookeeper-wired sellers. So many sales leaders live in perpetual frustration that their overly relational, account management minded salespeople will not hunt for new business. These “zookeepers” are wonderful people who live to keep the peace, enhance relationships, put out customer service fires, and service existing accounts, but most absolutely hate the conflict, risk, and rejection that accompanies hunting for new business.  Prepare to be challenged as Mike asks if it is possible to coerce, coach, and compensate zookeepers to become successful hunters. He also turns conventional wisdom on its head by making the case that even the most successful “account managers” who consistently penetrate and grow revenue within existing accounts actually behave more like proactive hunters than reactive farmers/zookeepers.  ______________________________________________________________________ Join Mike on either July 19th or 21st for a special session where he will offer 4 Practical Fixes for the Biggest Challenges Facing Sales Leaders Right Now.
