Selling with Genuine Intent – Episode #005: James Muir

 This is one of my favorite interviews yet because I believe so strongly in the mission of Sales Reinvented.  It was great to be interviewed by Paul Watts.  I’m especially thankful today because it’s Thanksgiving Holiday here in the US and I’m grateful to be part of a bigger movement to improve the selling profession. I hope you enjoy this interview.
