S3:E10 - Jeff Beals, an international speaker talks with Dave about sales and self branding.

July 17, 2019

Jeff and Dave meet each other a number of years back when Jeff spoke at a Chamber of Commerce meeting in Columbia, MO.  It was at a time when Dave was just getting started in his career of public speaking and as the two will share, they found they had some common interest as well.

Jeff has two books, Self Marketing Power and Selling Saturdays which you can find on his website;https://jeffbeals.com/ 

During the 30 minutes, they talk about the use o  social media, LinkedIn and the like as well as the value of a salesperson.  Jeff also reveals that over his 14 years has been able to make over 500 presentations around the globe.

Speaking of such, he wants to travel to Rome, as he hasn't made it there yet.  Listen as the two men talk about what they have done and how they see personal branding.  

You might want to follow Jeff on his blog, which he talks about: https://jeffbeals.com/blog/

As you listen, have a pen a paper ready as he gives you a list of people who he follows as well.

Dave Thompson is the Director of the Academy of Cleaning Excellence and host of this show.

Apparently, some podcasters have been wondering why we haven't been on the air, so Dave is here to catch you up.

Clean Buildings Expo, you heard about it on the last podcast from Dan Weltin.  Mark from Ashley Furniture in Mississippi was there and had the Academy bring the first session of the Rock Star Program to them at the plant.  Dave talks a bit about it here.

Triple S had the national conference in Arizona this past month and the Academy is now a Value Added Vendor of education.  During the week, Dave tells us that 20 distributors signed up to be regional campuses.  I'd stay tuned as there is surely more information on that to come.

ISSA and Mark Warner were in the house, literally, they were at GEM Supply using the Academy classroom for their Supervisors Bootcamp.

The Academy will be on the road with the Rock Star program to the GAPPA conference next week plus a full week in Texas during the middle of June.

Question of the day from Dave.  

Do you like email, text messaging or snail mail?  Which way do you like your communication these days?  Bobby and Dave have been talking about this and would like your feedback.

Dan Weltin, Editor-in-Chief for Contracting Profits and Cleanlink talks with Dave about the Clean Building Expo held in Baltimore this March for the first time.

Both guys heard a number of attendees saying that it was great to have a show for them.  That is, CBE is designed for the users, not distributors like the annual ISSA show.  

Dan also brings up that the Mid Atlantic states normally do not travel to the ISSA show, so they really were there in force.  

As for the Rock Star program, Dan proclaimed it was the highest attended session for the conference.  Over 150 people packed the room, with more wanting in.  

Engagement; it was the theme of the morning.  "No one wanted to sleep in this session," Dan commented.

Professional photographer, husband, father, marketer, ....and now, well, you just have to listen as he tells Dave why they now have more in common than before.

Dave and Chris meet through Tip Club in St. Louis over 4 years ago.  At the time, Chris was marketing electronic business cards.  Since then, Chris and family have traveled the world through their photography.

However, Chris explains that photography, while still his love, has lost business compared to the others the family is now engaged in.

Chris finishes with some free tips to anyone who wants to be an entrepreneur.
