Maria Bayer: How to Get More Leads and Close More Sales (Without Feeling Like a Sleaze)

One of the biggest challenges I’ve heard from some of you is finding clients and closing sales. When I have a question about sales, my mind goes directly to Maria Bayer - a sales coach for creatives.  So I invited her on the show to pick her sales brain for this episode of the Office Talk podcast.  Drawing from her sales experience in Corporate America, Maria now coaches creatives on how to book clients quickly and for more money. And she’s sharing some of her top tips with us in this episode.
