Hey there 👋
One of our goals going into 2023 is to do *even more* to help level-up the B2B sales community.
Whether you’re an AE, manager or sales exec – we’re all facing unique challenges that we probably didn’t foresee a few months ago. And no matter how experienced you are, we ALL need help tackling these problems.
Being part of a strong community is key: we can support each other, share advice, and learn together – in the good times and even more so in the not-so-great ones.
That’s exactly why we decided to partner with the awesome folks at 30 Minutes to President’s Club last year, and what led us to doubling down on our work with them in 2023! 🙌
Nick & Armand have definitely cracked the code of what sellers want & need to know, how they want to learn, and who they want to learn from.
They’re the best at cutting straight to the hard-earned tactics and getting rid of fluff – which is exactly what everyone needs right now. Stay tuned for more details coming soon, but in the meantime:
👉 Get 30MPC’s Mutual Action Plan template (1000+ downloads from AEs!)
👉 Learn tactics for aligning with buyers (masterclass with Nick Cegelski)
Hope this is helpful, and as always - happy selling 🤠

🔁 Masterclass: Maximize Sales Efficiency & Drive Repeatable Revenue in 2023
You can’t drive predictable revenue without a clearly defined, repeatable process. 🔁
After a uniquely challenging 2022 (and what’s looking like a similar 2023 😅) you’re rolling the dice without a playbook & proven methodology mapped to your targets…
(I know, easier said than done – especially with fewer resources and the only constant being change these days!)
But the only silver bullet to maximizing your AEs’ efficiency & driving repeatable revenue is a disciplined approach to following your sales methodology that everyone from the C-suite to front line managers can coach and enforce.
Super excited to dive into this timely topic in our next masterclass for sales leaders with two of the best I know: Pleasant Middelhof & Elizabeth Andrew!
We’ll dig into:
🔁 How to operationalize your MEDD(P)ICC & other methodologies
💯 Tips for empowering reps & increasing efficiency with a proven process
📈 Other tactics for driving more revenue with fewer resources
