SOTR: The Biggest Impact You Could Make on Your Business

Jun 3, 2022

If you’re serious about winning, then you have to have an extreme ownership mindset – not only for yourself but for your team as well. That means accepting responsibility for your failures and mistakes – something most people aren't willing to do but can make all the difference between a great salesperson or agency owner and a not-so-great one. In this SOTR episode, we're digging into what it means to have a culture of winning, how to onboard new salespeople and enable them to perform their very best, what it's like when everybody practices extreme ownership, and what you need to do to go from eight to nine figures as an agency. Also, JJ drills Joey on some pop culture questions. You'll find out his favorite movie of all time and what he was like as a young, angry teenager.
