38: Prospect Journeys, Problem Solving, and Other Musings

Sales, at its core, is a simple proposal. The prospect has a problem they’ll pay to solve, and you have a solution. But there’s a lot of nuance to it - how badly do they want to solve that problem, how much is too much to pay, how perfect your solution for them? In this episode Rex and Kevin discuss problem-solving, competing priorities, and staying top of mind to win more deals.
