Interview with Ron Hubsher
I seem to have a lot of "I thought I knew a lot until..." stories. At least I'm willing to admit when I have more to learn! For today's "I thought I knew a lot" story... Negotiation! So, I thought I knew a lot about negotiation when I started working at ADP Then they trained me in Ron Hubsher's approach Now, I say "Everything I know about negotiation, I learned from Ron Hubsher" Ehrin Weiss and I had the pleasure of interviewing Ron for this episode of PsychAndSales Ron talks about his tenants of negotiating And layers in an important aspect for our audience of knowing the mental state of our buyers before entering a negotiation How often are we doing that? Ron's advice in this episode is straight fire! Excited for you all to listen!

Interview with James Buckley
In this episode you will hear from James "Say What Sales" Buckley about burnout. Burnout is a systemic issue in sales. We are always on, always pushed to do more, and have an internal thought that says "If I just work harder, if I just hustle more, I will be more successful". This thought is a great driving force...until it isn't. This episode will help you see when burnout may be approaching for you, what to do about it, and how to strike a potential balance in your life to stay productive without going too far. Thanks for listening, and if we can ever do anything for you, let us know.
