Sales Podcast Alert!

A few weeks ago, a former colleague of mine, Mike Petrosyan reached out to me and asked to tell my story (thus far) in sales. Sales people aren’t born, they’re made through constant practice, discipline and drive to master your craft.

Mike and I worked together 12+ years ago, during the recession and very challenging times.

I'm Tim. I live in Cole Valley, San Francisco with my wife, Julie, and two daughters Addie and Audra. I tend to write a bunch about leading Sales teams, since that's what I've been doing since 2006. I'm particularly drawn to the psychology of selling, whether that be how people buy things or sell things, it's fascinating how decision-making is centered into the core of who you are as a person. I enjoy cultivating a culture centered around mastery of your craft and a genuine passion for winning together. Outside of professional learnings, I enjoy listening to epic sci-fi and fantasy books while I run long distances to decompress and obsessed with watching my two girls grow. For a good ice breaker, ask me about my Golden Retriever and my Bernese Mountain Dog.
