On this episode of Analysis Paralysis, I am talking to one of my mentors, Ajaz. He is a great salesman and consultant that has given me a lot of guidance over the years. I figured that not everyone has a mentor so I wanted to record this call with him to share with others to hopefully get something from this. Discussing sales and difficulties I was recently going through with clients and overall, how to sell value over an "hourly rate" type model.
This guy Tim reached out to me recently, he had listened to the first podcast and he was telling me about his story and it really resonated. We set up a time to talk and we just had a discussion about where he's at right now, where he wants to be going, what he is struggling with. A lot of that is about being able to sell yourself. You have a passion, a hobby, something that you are good at ー how do you convince people that it is worth buying?
It's impossible to start a business early on in your career and not pivot along the way. Over the past 8 years in business, I have grown a lot, evolved, and developed new skills that I could have never envisioned when opening up the company my freshman year of college. On this episode, I take you through my history of pivots from the web development world, to online marketing, IT support, and now business process consulting & automation. The longer you are in business, the more you learn, and the more opportunities you realize are available. How do you take advantage of the right opportunities and properly pivot your business?
