141: Adam Honig—How To Explode Your Sales With Intuitive Technology

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 8, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Adam Honig talks about empowering salespeople to reach new heights!

If you have a sales team out in the market, as most of us do, are they producing the results you want? How do you feel about your CRM (customer relationship manager) system which you paid $3 million to install but no one is really using? Perhaps your sales team is better than their results but they just need a hand? In today’s podcast, I interview Adam Honig whose company, Spiro, has developed an entirely new way to help people sell. Think of it as your A.I. personal executive assistant that is very responsive to your activities and that reminds you every day what has to be done to better capture the right sales at the right time for the right client. We were very excited to hear about Spiro and learn what it can mean for business. You will be as well.

 Lihi Segal explains how microbiomes are the key to health!

I first heard about heard Lihi Segal in a TED Talk about how our diets are unique to our bodies. It was so interesting. It's not about how much we eat, it's the precise mix of foods we consume. I reached out to Lihi and DayTwo, her research company that's developing this new approach, to see if they would share with us their research findings and what it might mean for each of us. The implications of this new understanding of nutrition are enormous. What if we all could be healthier and avoid disease if we better understood what's good and bad for our individual bodies? This is big. Listen in, learn and share this conversation! It could change your life.

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 16, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now as Nigel Parker teaches us how to move from concept to creating a business!

What's the secret to business success? Identifying a need, then coming up with an innovative solution that answers that need (that no one else has thought of yet). That's exactly what my guest today, Nigel Parker, did. Nigel's cousin Colleen, a neonatal nurse, realized that there was a way to heal bed sores by circulating air over the wounds. Nigel used his engineering background to found RashEndZ™ Inc., the maker of REZair™, a brand of skin aeration devices for incontinent garments that maintain optimum skin health. If you're an entrepreneur with a great idea you want to get off the ground, don't miss this chance to learn from someone who's done it! Enjoy.
