Stop Talking Yourself Out of Taking on a Hard Project with Phil Gerbyshak

Phil Gerbyshak is an amazing person with a huge heart. He is a VP of sales training. In this interview he gives great tips on improving your ability to sell. You might not think of yourself as a sales person, but we all have to sell ourselves to our co-workers, friends and even our family.

My favorite aspect of this interview is how Phil breaks down his thought process around how we can build upon our current habits and continue to grow even when we are uncomfortable. When we are uncomfortable this is where the growth really happens.
