LEMONADE STANDS, FISH SPAS, AND MIKE'S RANT The Selling Podcast

    • Management

A brief (and scary) glimpse  inside Mike's mind this week gives us three topics:
Lemonade Stand with Venmo - Imagine buying lemonade from some neighborhood kid without any cash or coin. These neighborhood kids had changed their business model and are meeting customers where they needed to be. Mike was able to pay these kids with Venmo. The moral of the story...eliminate the excuses, be confident, and continue to move with the times.Fish Kiss - A company in Provo, UT a very unique spa where small fish eat the dead skin on clients' feet. How did they go from maxing out 8 credit cards to a successful business? The moral of the story...drive and determination will get you going with speed and focus."Grumpy Old Man (Mike) Syndrome" -  A seemingly healthy young woman parks in a handicap stall and dashes into the grocery store while another healthy (and lazy) man leaves his shopping cart in the middle of the parking spot. The moral of this story...don't park in prim spots and be conscientious about your surroundings.Listen as Mike and Scott connect the dots and encourage younger reps to listen to the experience of older managers.  And for older managers, try and discover new ways to do business. Leverage your new reps, build their confidence and find new ways to conduct your business.
