Did you know women make up only 29% of sales reps and just 26% of sales managers? Yet women in sales are proven to outperform their male colleagues, according to a study done by Xactly.
Inspiring women in sales has become the passion of Lori Richardson, who created one of my favorite organizations: Women Sales Pros. Lori is also the host of the popular podcast, Conversations with Women In Sales. Every episode features a woman in sales who is doing incredible work, or an interview with a male ally, or conversation on a related topic. Guests share practical advice for advancing one’s sales career.
I was pleased to join Lori on a recent episode to share some of my favorite advice: “Bet On Yourself, and You’ll Always Win.”
Some highlights from the episode include:
[1:49] How I took an English degree and transformed it into a successful sales career
[7:51] A conversation about women in sales
[15:49] Amy’s top two pieces of advice for sales leaders
[18:21] How I am “Dreaming Big” as Chairwoman of the Board of Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland
