About this Episode

Join Taylor Barnes and I as we discuss the importance of knowing how to motivate salespeople and the benefits of leaning into the individual motivators of your salespeople from a personal and professional point of view. It's not always about the money!

By motivating your salespeople, beyond the day-to-day, beyond the nine to five, that's the way that you're going to move the needle. That's the way that you're going to get those big growth goals and that ROI that the shareholders are looking for. - Taylor Barnes
