It's Time To Sell: Fireside Chat with Calvin Simpson

Happiness and Connection with Calvin Simpson

Today I bring a very special guest to the program – Calvin Simpson. Calvin and I go back roughly a year or so on LinkedIn and most recently we decided to record a podcast episode.

Calvin is the author of Life Through The Eyes of a Smile – a book that will lead you down a daily path to creating a richer and more successful life.

On this episode, we delve into the happiness of pursuing a career in entrepreneurship and sales. So sit back, relax, and enjoy.
