In this episode of the Startup Selling Podcast, I interviewed Todd Caponi.

Todd is the author of the 3x best-book-award-winning, The Transparency Sale, a speaker & workshop leader as Founder & CEO of Sales Melon LLC, and the Managing Director of Chicago’s VentureSCALE. Todd is also a multi-time C-Level sales leader, a behavioral science nerd, and has guided two companies to successful exits.

Some of the key topics that we discussed in Part 2 of this episode are:

  • The history and principles of selling.
  • How do we relate to people and show up the right way?
  • How do we communicate in sales?
  • What makes a great salesperson.
