Episode Info: "Am I here to please everybody or am I here to make things better?" This question drove our guest today, Lauren Bailey, to start her passion project #GirlsClub and lays at the foundation of her life's work in sales. Lauren is the Founder of Factor 8, The Sales Bar, and #Girls Club, and she’s on a mission to help more people feel more successful at work. She's helping entry level salespeople conquer cold call confidence and preparing women for sales leadership positions in front-line management. After spending nearly 20 years launching and leading Inside sales organizations around the world, she started Factor 8 to help solve the problems she kept seeing: sales rep and sales managers woefully unprepared to sell over the phone. In this episode we discuss the pitfalls of inside sales, mentoring young salespeople and her work with Televerde, an orginzation that helps accelerate sales growth in companies AND helps prepare incarcerated women for their transition back to society.
