    S15E12- Identifying Your Highest Value Customers with Indifit Chief Exercise Officer Cheryl Kemp

    S15E12- Identifying Your Highest Value Customers with Indifit Chief Exercise Officer Cheryl Kemp

    Not all customers are created equal.
    Not all revenue is created equal.
    This fundamental understanding determines whether you’re chasing distractions or chasing growth.
    Indifit CEO Cheryl Kemp realized as the company gained traction that even though its customers could all be categorized within the fitness industry, they needed deeper segmentation to improve their offering, focusing on a specific sub-niche in order to turn these customers into raving fans.
    She steps to the mic in our season finale to share their findings, process, and journey to product-market fit.

    S15E11: Empowering Your Team To Be Their Best with Teamworks Sales Director Larry Long, Jr.

    S15E11: Empowering Your Team To Be Their Best with Teamworks Sales Director Larry Long, Jr.

    Every leader has a job to not only make decisions for the company, but enable employees to make decisions for themselves.
    To pave the way but avoid getting in the way.
    To handhold but not handcuffed.
    Many leaders struggle with this, especially as more and more responsibilities get delegated.
    So how do you empower your team to perform their best every single day?
    Teamworks Sales Director Larry Long steps to the mic this week, bringing his infectious energy with him to talk through his experience and advice, in what I can only describe as like being part of a TEDTalk.

    S15E10: How To Combat Zoom Fatigue With Volley CEO Josh Little

    S15E10: How To Combat Zoom Fatigue With Volley CEO Josh Little

    After almost a year of doing seemingly everything virtually, I think it's safe to say that many of us have Zoom Fatigue.
    Zoom and other video conferencing went from a tool to hold business meetings to how we celebrate birthdays, holidays, happy hours, and hangouts with friends.
    For me personally, I feel like my eyeballs are about to fall out.
    That's why I was excited to speak with Volley CEO Josh Little in this week's episode.
    If Starbucks is the 3rd space between work and home, Volley is the 3rd space between Slack and Zoom.
    And Josh has some good ideas on how to fight back against the Zoom Fatigue.

    S15E9: Pivoting from Agency to SaaS with Jellyvision CEO Amanda Lannert

    S15E9: Pivoting from Agency to SaaS with Jellyvision CEO Amanda Lannert

    Nearly every company faces a critical moment early on where they realize what they originally came up with isn't exactly what's best for the market or for their own growth, and as a result, they pivot.
    Usually, this is a slight product change. In Jellyvision's case, it was an entire overhaul of an already-successful business model.
    After years of doing well as an agency, they realized if they really wanted to fulfill their mission they had to pivot from agency to a SaaS company.
    Their CEO Amanda Lannert steps to the mic in this week's episode to share what kind of conversations they were having, and what they did to successfully pivot to an award-winning SaaS company with hundreds of employees.

    S15E8: Quantifying Value When Value is Hard to Quantify with Mediafly Chief Evangelist Tom Pisello

    S15E8: Quantifying Value When Value is Hard to Quantify with Mediafly Chief Evangelist Tom Pisello

    You know that part of the conversation asks, "What kind of results should I expect?" How do you respond? Especially if what you sell doesn't have a clear ROI.
    Tom Pisello has dedicated most of his career to cracking the value equation in modern selling, to the extent that he's known as 'The ROI Guy'.
    He also might actually be The Most Interesting Man In The World.
    Not just because he looks like the Dos XX character, but because his past includes radio, playing in a wedding band, and being a Porsche Racing instructor.
    Tom steps to the mic this week and drives laps around the concept of delivering value throughout the sales process.

Raj did a great job interviewing Cheryl. Need to listen - introduction is superb! Cheryl is an articulate & engaging founder with many lessons learned/advice to give. Excellent “give and take” between Raj & Cheryl!

Amazing Pod 🎙

Raj, and The Startup Podcast are AMAZING. His energy is unmatched, and with his signature introduction, felt like I was about to tune-in and listen to a heavyweight bout 🥊...his energy did not disappoint, along with insightful questions, and conversations/topics that were both entertaining and informative. Look forward to future episodes!
