You all know Jill Konrath. Or at least you should. She has nearly ¼ million LinkedIn followers. Her bookSelling To Big Companies was chosen as one of Fortune Magazine’s eight “must read” sales books. She also wrote Agile Selling and SNAP Selling, both of which soared to #1 on Amazon within hours of their release. In 2012, she was inducted into Top Sales World’s Top Sales & Marketing Hall of Fame.
Needless to say, she’s kind of a big deal.
Which makes it a huge deal, at least for me, to have been able to chat with her about being one of the top sales people on the planet.
After hearing “you should be in sales” one too many times, Elli Rigolfi finally decided to see what all the fuss was about. Turns out everyone was right. Rigolfi found a natural fit in the sales development world, and went on to source $1 million for the employee engagement app company SocialChorus.
We got a chance to pick Rigolfi’s brain about what she does, what inspires her, and of course, women in sales.
