In this episode, I talked with BJ Miller, VP of Sales for Central/Rocky Mountain at AgileCraft about Chasing Failure. That’s right. I said failure. A unique and intriguing topic that provided some interesting perspective on why failing is not a bad thing.
BJ suggested today’s topic but before we got into the meat of our conversation, I asked BJ to share her experience as a competitive swimmer that led to her becoming an Olympic Gold Medalist, an amazing accomplishment and part of a long list of BJ’s athletic accomplishments.
Here is what we talked about during the interview.
Why BJ encourages people to chase failure.
How failure plays into selling.
What it takes to chase failure.
Why diversity in your career isn’t a bad thing.
The advice BJ would give other women in sales.
Enjoy the interview!
