In this episode of the Transformed Sales Podcast, I had a chat with Bryan Charleaum the Founder of Pitching Sales Consulting. He is a seasoned sales professional with over ten years of experience in the sales industry, ranging from software to construction. Through his experiences, he has learned countless lessons and gained first-hand knowledge of the challenges that sales professionals face when establishing themselves in this competitive field. 


Bryan’s first book, Pitching Sales, is filled with important and often overlooked information that can help to prepare you for the beginning stages of your career and to guide you through some of the unexpected situations you may find yourself in. His goal is to help new and young sales professionals thrive in sales.


Like all sales professionals, Bryan fought hard in his career, a path seen by many as “the only way.” He will share methods to accelerate your sales success, enhance the highs, ease the lows, and show that you don't have to navigate the world of sales alone especially when you’re starting out. He will also have a lot of valuable insights to share with sales leaders as well, so make sure you don’t miss this episode.
