Episode 6: Mentoring the Buyer’s Journey with Keith Walters
Mentor or coach? They are two very different things. Each has a role to play in business and in life but selecting the right one for the right situation can be difficult if you don’t understand the difference. This week we’re joined by Keith Walters to discuss finding AND becoming a mentor or coach.
Even if you’ve never personally had a mentor or utilized the services of a coach you can still become a trusted adviser to your client or prospect. Why is it advantageous to mentor someone who is buying from you and how does one even start?
Rachel, Gina and Keith detail what you could be doing right now to become a resource before, during and after the sales process.
