Most salespeople are constantly the same fundamental mistake—they think it’s all about them. The problem is that customers can smell it a mile away and stop caring about what you have to say.

In this episode of The Fire Time Podcast Tim Reed sits down with Bradley Hartmann (President of Behind Your Back Sales) to walk through 4 principles that will move the needle in the way that you sell to other businesses.

  • Master the question “Why are you different?”(most people crash and burn on this)
  • Make them look smart(this is a game-changer if you put it to use)
  • Read to lead(this is the simple truth and most people miss it)
