It can cause your voice to tremble, or even worse, stop you from picking up the phone altogether.

About Darryl's guest:

Michael Pedone, founder, and CEO of SalesBuzz.com, is a name well known to many in the world of online business. He launched an internet marketing company during the dot com meltdown and defied the odds by turning it into a massively successful venture. A large factor in its success was Michael’s ability to teach his proven phone sales techniques to his ever-expanding staff, creating swift growth for the company. He sold the firm at the peak of its profitability so he could turn his attention to a new challenge. Michael drew on his background as a commissioned salesperson and a sales trainer when he created the programs that form the backbone of SalesBuzz.com.

Michael recognized a crucial weakness in most sales companies seminars: the initial glow of enthusiasm whipped up by charismatic speakers soon wears off leaving attendees several hundred or thousand dollars poorer and selling just as little as before. He wanted to offer sales professionals a more effective, affordable sales training mode.
