On every SalesChange Podcast – we ask the guests to answer 5 standard questions – here are the responses from Danny Allen-Page.

  • What was the last book you read?

Danny – Follow Up and Close the Sale by Jeff Shore 

  • What did you want to be when you grew up?

Danny – Footballer – that was it!

  • Whats the worst job you could imagine doing?

Danny – I could never work for someone else – after being at the mercy of other’s and working for other people, I could never allow a business I run to fold and then put my family in jeapordy.

  • What’s the worst sales mistake you’ve ever made?

Danny –  Telling is not selling – I used to just talk (and talk) and I never used to listen to what my clients were telling me. When you don’t listen and you end up just ‘telling’ the client what they want, its not a fast track to success.
