Guest - Donald Kelly, Host of The Sales Evangelist Podcast
Donald Kelly joins us on the podcast, I think he is the first
Miami Dolphins fan we have had on the show. We recorded this
episode in August, and date it a bit with talk of 3 quarterbacks
& 4-2 Jets records, given that the Jets are currently 1-3.
Donald started off as a B2C Sales rep, and made the transition
into B2B before starting the TSE Podcast, the Sales Podcast
Network, and his coaching & training practice. I hope you
enjoy the discussion as much as I did. Thanks for your
patience with the Jets vs Dolphins banter.
