Episode 253: Turn Your Agency from Streetwise to Saleswise

In this episode, we have a powerhouse lineup with sales maestros Jeff C. West and Bob Burg. Jeff and Bob are here to debunk the sales myths that have been leading you astray. Their insights come from decades of experience and are backed by their groundbreaking book, “Streetwise to Saleswise.” They’ll also give our listeners a sneak peek into their sales philosophy by offering the first two chapters for free—a gesture you won’t want to miss.

We’ll dive deep into the misconceptions surrounding objections in sales, why empathy is your strongest tool, and how to create emotional connections that turn prospects into loyal clients. Jeff shares an unforgettable story, proving that understanding psychology in sales is non-negotiable, while Bob emphasizes the ever-crucial “know, like, and trust” mantra.


  • Sales objections are common and should be handled effectively without trying to overcome them.
  • Starting a conversation positively leads to a favorable response, while a negative start can lead to rejection.
  • Creating a positive, non-adversarial bond during the process leads to long-term client loyalty and recommendations.
  • Sales requires reframing rejection to understand it positively to avoid quitting due to negativity.
  • Trust their words, not yours; ask the right questions.
  • Empathy is vital for success.
