From an idyllic early childhood to enduring “unbelievable racism” as a teenager, sales and LinkedIn coach Niraj Kapur learned to adapt. After facing mental health challenges and “a horrendous divorce,” Niraj was ready to rebound — then the pandemic hit and his income went to zero. He threw himself into his consulting business, Everybody Works In Sales, and devised ways to make sales connections on LinkedIn. Today he is sought after as a speaker and sales coach who offers as his No. 1 piece of advice: Better understand the sales process and “engage with customers who are not doing business with you.” … After John laments that too many entrepreneurs and sales executives “take money from anybody to keep the lights on,” Niraj replies that he says “no to anybody” who isn’t a good fit.
