Why Do People Need to Learn About Selling with Love?
We all know how little people like to be sold to. Many see sales as "sleazy," in large part because so many salespeople come across as inauthentic and uncaring. But sales can truly help people... if you know how to sell with love. Truly understand your client, provide them with a product or service that will genuinely improve their life, and they'll be happy to do business with you. So how do you tap into the caring side of sales? We spoke with Jason Marc Campbell about the art of selling with love.
Jason Marc Campbell is the author of Selling with Love: Earn with Integrity and Expand Your Impact. He is on a mission to inspire small business owners with sales reluctance to embrace it as a beautiful activity that transforms lives.

He is a public speaker who’s shared the stage with the likes of Gary V, Jason Silva, Vishen Lakhiani, Lisa Nichols and more. Jason has spoken at events by Hubspot, Inc Magazine and A-Fest.
He has worked for Mindvalley, a personal growth ed-tech company, for 7 years.

Jason still is an author and a host on the platform.
His mission is all about teaching companies to care more. As businesses have so much power in the capitalist world, if we can educate businesses to take on more responsibility on how they sell, how they market, how they treat their employees, and even how they invest their money, we start shifting the very planet into a better place for all.
