On this special edition of the Predictable Revenue podcast, host Collin Stewart invites GowthX co-founder Sean Sheppard into the Predictable Revenue office for a live, wide-ranging chat on sales fundamentals.
Sheppard is a San Francisco-based veteran sales leader, investor, writer, mentor...and former professional golfer (the man has done it all). Currently, Sheppard is co-founder and lead instructor at GrowthX and GrowthX Academy, an early-stage venture capital fund and training ground for tech sales, marketing and design professionals.
Throughout this episode, Collin and Sean discuss the importance of market development, being a human on sales calls and elevating the status of the sales professional. Highlights include: Sheppard’s definition of market development vs. customer development (6:35), different buyer types (21:14), and Sheppard’s investigative questioning framework (25:38).
