Insightful and inspiring

Love these podcasts and the holistic approach to career advancement. Mama Sales’ passion for helping others is evident and she brings lots of fun and energy to every episode. Even if you aren’t in sales, the content is relatable and you will always learn something new! If I ever decide to move into a sales career, I will definitely be signing up for the Sales Strong coaching/mentoring services.

Good but could be better

I really appreciate the intention behind this podcast. However, I feel that a lot of the conversations seem very surface level and tend to perpetuate stereotypes rather than discuss the societal expectations that inform those stereotypes and stuggles of women in sales.

For example, saying that “women give up sooner than men” can be harmful if u do not discuss that women must work harder than men. The amount of time women and men work is not the same as the amount of work they must do in that time to be deemed valuable.

I would appreciate deeper insight during conversations, but overall the podcast is good.

Mama Sales - the real deal!

Mama Sales (host of Sales Strong is legit). She’s a real person and faces the same challenges as her listeners, so the conversations are actually relevant. I highly recommend not only subscribing to her show, but check out her site for other material.
