    Success Is Not Logical with Meridith Elliott Powell

    Success Is Not Logical with Meridith Elliott Powell

    Relentless vision. That is what today's guest brings to the show. Meridith Elliott Powell, sales strategist, leadership expert, Certified Speaking Professional, and award-winning author joins Gina and Rachel for an episode that will seem to fly by, but you'll have to listen again to absorb all of the wisdom that Meridith is dropping.
    The discussion starts with the ways that their personal lives have changed this past year and then segues into the change in sales and business during this time. Meridith bucks the idea of "getting back to normal," and champions the idea of getting excited about the unknown. She tells how those that have thrived during the last year have done so by letting the client lead, and how speaking their language and making yourself relevant is the key. And she reveals her keys to communication and the number one thing you need to be successful.
    PLUS! Meridith gives excerpts from her upcoming book THRIVE! which is full of strategy and inspiration.

    Show Them Why You're Worth It with Jeff Bajorek

    Show Them Why You're Worth It with Jeff Bajorek

    Sometimes the best conversations happen when the show goes off script and gets real. Especially when those conversations are about... being real. Today Gina and Rachel have some real talk with Jeff Bajorek, sales trainer, consultant, author of two books, The Five Forgotten Fundamentals of Prospecting and When it Goes Sideways, and the host of two podcasts, The Why and The Buy and Deeper Thought.
    The discussion zeros in on the fear of being who we are and what we choose to share of ourselves depending on the audience, how we are our own worst critics, and how being honest with who we are will set ourselves apart from the pack, attract more business and repel the clients we didn't want anyway. 
    Plus hear Jeff's take on how Covid will effect the sales world moving forward, and Gina and Rachel try their best to get Jeff to go on a rant!

    Personal Growth Fuels Professional Growth with Larry Levine

    Personal Growth Fuels Professional Growth with Larry Levine

    If you like your podcasts with energy, information, a touch of psychoanalysis, and a lot of heart, than you are in luck. Larry Levine, veteran sales leader, trainer, and author of the best-selling book, Selling From The Heart, is here to talk about something that many salespeople shy away from... authenticity and personal growth. 
    Larry is the first to admit that sales is tough, but you make it harder on yourself when you fake it. He knows that being true to who you are, having real belief in your message, leading with confidence, and not getting tempted to just follow other people's lead, will allow you to create genuine connections and yes, sell from the heart.

Funny, But Makes You Think

As a guy, I'm not quick on all the humor Gina and Rachel throw out, but they are funny. More imporantly they offer great insight. Please don't break up!

I Felt Like I was Talking With My Best Friend

Listening to this podcast makes me feel like I’m listening to a conversation with my best friend. At times it’s serious and then quickly moves to an upbeat banter full of laughter. There are so many great take aways and I found myself responding to them like I was a part of the conversation! I love the real, raw, and fun style between Rachel and Gina. Well done!
