    Alexine Mudawar - Bigger Deals Require Bigger Thinking

    Alexine Mudawar - Bigger Deals Require Bigger Thinking

    After being a high-level taekwondo competitor and making door-to-door sales calls, Alexine Mudawar knows about taking her lumps. The strategic account executive at Alyce and co-founder of the Women in Sales Club says her long-ago cold calls taught her how “to build rapport very quickly” when meeting someone new. To those who want to follow her career path from front-line AE to heading enterprise sales teams, Alexine urges perspective and patience. She says it’s important to keep team members apprised of a deal’s status, not just when it closes, and that sales take longer when dealing with larger, more-bureaucratic clients.
    Hear Alexine and Morgan discuss the importance of having multiple contacts on the prospect side, something he calls “deal insurance.”

    Jed Mahrle - Where to Look for Clues that Lead to Big Sales

    Jed Mahrle - Where to Look for Clues that Lead to Big Sales

    Knowing the tools (and listening to the boss) helped Jed Mahrle go from a front-line rep to a global sales development executive. He cold-called when he started because that’s what his boss wanted, but also developed more sophisticated approaches to generating sales, including deeper looks into data. Today as head of outbound sales for sales engagement software company Mailshake, he encourages account executives to engage end-users on LinkedIn, find out their needs, and consider how they can be addressed. “If you're genuine, it's free information you can take to the decision makers,” Jed says.
    Hear Jed and Morgan discuss how they wring the most value out of the information that’s available through the Salesforce platform.

    Gabrielle Blackwell on How Being Real Helps You Get Ahead

    Gabrielle Blackwell on How Being Real Helps You Get Ahead

    Sales development guru Gabrielle Blackwell says authenticity — “when your words and actions align” — can be a powerful tool in the workplace. “Things happen” to everyone, says the business development manager for productivity platform Airtable, but accepting the past and committing to “show up and own my narrative” can energize career advancement. Job search candidates stand out when they “demonstrate mastery by being able to articulate what it is that makes (them) successful,” she says. “If you can't figure out what makes you successful, how are you going to be able to help others figure out what makes them successful?”
    Hear Morgan and Gabrielle discuss a frequently overlooked link in the sales chain: the relationship between the sales representative and their manager.

    Devin Reed On How Marketing Can Help Sales

    Devin Reed On How Marketing Can Help Sales

    Devin Reed thought twice before leaving a successful sales career to become a marketing executive for Gong, the AI-fueled sales intelligence company known for its must-read blog. “It took me a long time to get good” at selling, he says, but a commitment to serving others learned from the Bible led him to assisting his co-workers in making their sales. Today as Gong’s head of content strategy he says successful marketers need to recognize their company’s top annual goal and “attach everything that you do to support it in some way.”
    Hear Morgan and Devin share how Kobe Bryant inspired them as much with his grit and hustle as with his basketball talent.

    Morgan went onto the The Anthony Eisenman Show to create a tactical episode chatting about why sales is like doing math, why more people should be thinking about LinkedIn, and how to be a better (sales) professional overall. Morgan says "Sales is a massive part of life - you're in a sales conversation or a negotiation every single day." Anthony and Morgan even break down prospecting via emails, phone calls and even social media.

Morgan’s words are gospel!

Morgan is one of the best educators out there. Whether it’s sales enablement, life advice, etc. I’ve had the opportunity to connect with him on a project and his insight and perspective is so unique and helpful. Not to mention it’s real, relatable, and easily digestible/easy to apply. This podcast is the culmination of his thoughts and I couldn’t recommend it more!
