What is this course about?

In this course, you will learn how to turn your sales experience into a full-blown consulting practice. However, this will not be some boring and old-fashioned practice.

The work is consistent and rewarding too.

Learn the insider secrets to creating, growing, and operating a part-time sales management practice. Companies with 2-10 salespeople desperately need help managing their sales teams in a cost-effective manner.
