#205: Carole Mahoney – Embracing Collaborative Selling and a Buyer-First Mindset

In this week’s Scale Your Sales podcast episode, my guest is Carole Mahoney, the author of Buyer First: Grow Your Business with Collaborative Selling.

Carole is changing how the sales industry sees itself — and how buyers see it as well. She has been named as a top sales influencer by LinkedIn and Sales Hacker, and is also a sales coach for the Harvard Entrepreneurial MBA Program.

In this episode, Carole discusses the concept of “buyer first” and how it can revolutionise the way we approach sales. Her recently launched her book, Buyer First: Grow Your Business with Collaborative Selling, is specifically tailored to business owners, founders, entrepreneurs, and salespeople who have tried various techniques but are not seeing the desired results. Drawing from a database of 2.3 million salespeople, Carol’s book is grounded in extensive research and offers practical advice for success. She shares her insights on self-awareness, mindset shifts, and the importance of collaborative selling. Stay tuned as we delve into how her book can transform your sales approach and help you achieve unprecedented success.
