Sales Intersection: The Intersection of Money and Meaning
Sales Intersection: The Intersection of Money and Meaning
Eric B Jones
‘Sales Intersection’, a podcast providing a medium where my guests and I can discuss where we derive meaning, fulfillment, and passion for sales. I've been in sales close to 20 years. My experience has been it's a profession that attracts some of the world's most colorful personalities but ironically sales people are graded on a the most black and white binding method that exists. You hit your quota, you're a good person. You don't, you're a bad person. My guests and I explore how to maximize the color and minimize the black and white.
Sales Intersection Season 3 Finale - Larry Long and Sales Enablement
What can I say about Larry Long Jr. I can picture him going through Navy Seals bootcamp and smiling the whole time.  Might get some extra pushups for talking.    It was an absolute pleasure having Larry on as my season finale guest. The guy just makes you want to climb mountains and go up to strangers to tell them how great life can be.    In this episode we address among other things if the negative association with sales is due to lack of resources and classes (only 4%) in college or lack of sales enablement especially in the startup world.   We also discuss what he's most proud of, cognitive behavioral therapy, and how many times he was sent to detention for talking.

Sales Intersection Season 3 | Episode 9 | Advice from Reprise BDR of the Year | Jamie Neubeck
I hadn't been this excited for an episode in the longest time.  Jamie just has a spirit and energy about her that for me was infectious.   We get into her personal life (what a story) and specific prospecting and lead generation tactics she used to become BDR of the year at Reprise.    Her trump over any setback or hurdle attitude mindset is inspiring. More inspiring is how transparent she is on social media and probably in person about telling the WHOLE story and how she got to be such a rock.   She's now BDR of the year at Reprise and just keeps shining.  Definitely tune into this one folks. Truly inspiring.

Sales Intersection Season 3 | Episode 6 | Your 3 Sales Pipelines and Brands that don't Execute | Guest Lucas Root
Best line of the show: "When you walk into a bookstore you'll see books written by me". #sales #branding #socialselling #energy Legendary line. Lucas Root, who works with some of the biggest companies in the world that are execution challenged, joins me on Sales Intersection Season 3 Episode 6 discussing sales pipelines for prospecting and how he helps some of the biggest companies in the world that are execution challenged. It's a line that made me laugh but that's not reflective of Lucas as he's one of the most humble, deferential, and probably has the most soothing voice I've had on the show. On a serious note I think this speaks to self-awareness and the ability to be present in selling and a more than sufficient calm in his voice to evoke trust. He also has an energy that makes it easy to share your story. Lucas touches on the importance of not putting all your pipeline eggs in one basket (timely example - if you were counting on conferences to achieve quota pre-COVID) and instead to split them up into social selling, being digitally savvy and going about your branding in a way that speaks to your true passion and genuine self.

Sales Intersection Season 3 | Episode 5 | The Intersection of Mental Health and the Sales Revolution | Guest Amy Hrehovcik
Sales Intersection - where you can always count on mediocre production value but legendary fire with guests and content. Season 3 Episode 5 with Amy Hrehovcik. I almost didn't want Amy on the show because I didn't know how I'd get through the episode successfully avoiding the daunting task of trying to pronounce her last name, which I never actually do.  Hot topics discussed here folks as we go over mental health in sales in addition to what I believe to be a revolution happening in sales. Amy has some fascinating insights into this as well. This and much much more in this episode of Sales Intersection - The Intersection of Money and Meaning. Amy is a character for the books.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.

Sales Intersection Season 3 | Episode 4 | The Intersection of Positivity and Sales for Success | Guest James Buckley
James 'the bucking bronco, bucket full of big bite sales insights' Buckley on this episode of Sales Intersection. You have to be on adderall to be on James' energy level but it's such a joy to be around that kind of positivity.  James talks about some ups and downs in life even though he once thought he'd be a great cop. He brings the Sales Intersection full circle by saying all he's been through lended itself nicely to his genuine and transparent self/brand.  He's proof that channeling all that is within yourself and being self aware enough to know what that is gravitates towards his prospects. As he says if you're still chasing chasing chasing after prospects in 2022, you're behind the game.    Check out this episode where James talks about being on a cross country roadtrip with a stranger telling his story, the research necessary for cold prospecting, and the changes he was determined to make once finding out he had type 2 diabetes. An EPIC episode! TONS of laughs folks. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.

Eric Brakebill Jones (Named a pioneer in virtual sales, marketing, and lead generation by Yahoo and ranked top 20 podcasts in the nation by Forbes) and Mitchell Levy, 2x TEDx speaker and best selling author of over 20 books, join me on this virtual lead generation tool focused meeting.   We’re going to be discussing the difference in today’s selling environment everybody seems to acknowledge, but for some reason, for the most part, isn’t doing anything to adapt effectively.   Based on Hubspot statistics despite sales teams sending about 50% more emails during COVID, response rates continue to decline. If it’s not working, don’t do more of it, can we agree?    Join us for a discussion on what adapting means to the virtual selling era. This includes adapting with your company and personal branding, your lead generation tools, out of the box thinking, a completely different way of going about social selling and a whole lot more. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
