Innovation: Interviews with Visionaries

Selling Professional Services, Michael McLaughlin

  

Podcast with the founder of MindShare Consulting, Michael McLaughlin

"I'm always amazed when consultants tell me they don't like (or want) to sell. Some seem to think the whole sales thing is completely beneath them. Then there are others who say they aren't good at selling. My reaction to both views is, you're kidding, right? You may be the guru in your field, but that won't put a dime in the bank if you can't sell." Michael McLaughlin

My first question, "I suck at sales, now what?" A number of executives in the 40's, 50's, and beyond, who've lost their jobs as a result of the recession, will never find a job at the level and income they achieved before the economy imploded. For many of these folks, professional , project based consulting is the best avenue for them to pursue. The only real option available to take advantage of their experience, and maintain an executive level income. One of the most difficult transitions many executives face: developing a sales mindset.

Welcome to a Success Strategies Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. Our guest today on TPR is Michael McLaughlin, founder of MindShare Consulting LLC. This is part one of a two-part podcast focused on the professional sales process: Connect, Collaborate, and Connect. Part 2 of our interview will air February 12th.

Exploring E-Myths

  

Podcast with entrepreneur and E-Myth explorer, Michael Gerber

Published on August 09 2009

E-Myth Legend Michael E. Gerber returns to Total Picture Radio

Michael Gerber - E-Myth Guru Michael Gerber

"Seventy percent of all businesses in the United States are sole proprietors. They started out doing it doing it doing it - and they continue doing it doing it doing it - just one guy... one woman. It's not even a business; it's a practice. And they are the sum and the substance of that practice. So, most people who start, start because they need a job, they gotta have a job, they create their own job, and it becomes the worst job in the world because they're working for a lunatic." - Michael Gerber

Welcome to an Entrepreneur Channel podcast on Total Picture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. Michael Gerber is one of the best known entrepreneurs; the founder and CEO of E-Myth Worldwide, and best selling author of The E-Myth Revisited, E-Myth Mastery, and now, The E-Myth Enterprise: How to Turn A Great Idea Into a Thriving Business. If you think of this trilogy as films, The E-Myth Enterprise is the prequel.

Gerber turns his attention to business invention in this slim, straightforward book that distills the essential knowledge needed to create a completely original company. He identifies four essential facets of building a new company-visual, emotional, functional and financial-and the five essential skills: concentration, discrimination, organization, innovation and communication.
