Getting More Out of Your Life and Career with Lynn Whitbeck
Episode 16: Show Notes
It is not always apparent that a career in sales can be a rewarding pursuit, but it truly can be, especially when you form meaningful relationships with your clients and can help people fix problems they never knew they had!
In today’s episode of The Water Cooler Hangout, we speak with Lynn Whitbeck, Founder, and CEO of Petite2Queen and Future Forward Sales.
In our conversation, Lynn shares the story of her first experience with sales when she became obsessed with earning a girl scout badge for selling cookies and why she believes sales is such a rewarding and fulfilling career.
We talk with Lynn about the origin story of her two companies Petite2Queen and Future Forward Sales, and how she helps companies take their sales strategy to the next level. We discuss how her company challenges imposter syndrome in their courses and why she is such a big proponent of daily affirmations. Join us today for an inspiring conversation on sales, relationships, and much more!
Key Points From This Episode:
“If you don't have a growth mindset in today's business environment, you're gonna get left in the dust. So that is so important for business leaders to embrace and to really foster among their team members to push the whole organization forward.” — @LynnMWhitbeck [0:04:50]
“It's a career boost. If you have sales training, whether you work a day in sales or not, you are actually selling every day, at home, with your friends or family, at work. You're selling your idea to the different team members or your boss.” — @LynnMWhitbeck [0:05:37]
“And by the next year, I was the top salesperson. And I never looked back. It was because it answered my own core value of being of service and helping others.” — @LynnMWhitbeck [0:26:09]
“Working with someone who's very different is really good for you because it pushes you out of your comfort zone. It forces you to flex your style, and really reconsider someone else's approach or how they're tackling something.” — @LynnMWhitbeck [0:30:34]
