Behavioral Science, Sales, and Removing Your Commission Breath with Jeremy Miner

Welcome to a new and exciting episode of the Business Growth Hacks podcast! Today, we welcome entrepreneur, podcast host, business owner, author, and newbie Instagram celebrity, Jeremy Miner. We dive right in and Jeremy takes our old ideas around growing our career in sales, which we assume needs massive and constant mindset changes and meditative practices, and challenges them with what, according to him, are the actual keys to success. From the right questions to ask, the correct tonality that triggers curiosity, and all things in between, we start to understand why Jeremy is considered a behavioral science and sales guru to many! 

Jeremy engages us in topics such as his NEQP model, how to navigate our new information age and the importance of removing our commission breath. Plus, we are lucky enough to get a guide on how to facilitate successful sales conversations. Jeremy explains the power of picking up queues, understanding human behavior, the way our brain reacts, and the value of conversations that are quality over quantity. From recording successful Instagram reels to dismantling old, outdated myths, Jeremy teaches us the power of persuasion, influence, and moving others. We hope you’ll join us!
