Joining me on this episode of Accelerate! is Ali Mirza, Founder and President of Rose Garden Consulting, and author of the ebook, A Salesperson’s 30 Rules to Success. Among the many topics that Ali and I discuss in this episode are the biggest challenge facing sales reps in today’s business environment, the problems that can result from relying entirely on big data to manage sales, and the importance of really getting to know your prospects, their character types and their buying triggers.
