Most business owners have an aversion to selling and the general public usually thinks sleazy car salesman or pushy cold caller when you mention sales to them….but when sales and selling is done properly it shouldn’t be like that at all.

Our guest on Episode 6 of the My Livelihood Podcast is Simon Chen, Director of Eight Black Cars in Colorado USA.

Simon is an Australian who has lived in Colorado for the past six years. Prior to moving to the US, Simon and his family were based in Singapore.

He has spent the past 15-years consulting with technology companies across Asia Pacific and the US and has held several senior management positions for large multinationals including British Telecom Asia Pacific.

I first met Simon in 2004 when he put on the X10 Seminar, a 3 day digital marketing seminar, at the Hyatt Coolum Resort in Queensland.

I was extremely impressed with how the X10 Seminar was run by Simon and his team and the excellent presenters who were at the top of their game. 

I have held any future events up to that standard. Very few have even come close.

Join us as we chat with Simon about his Livelihood journey and how he is adapting to the current business environment.

Enjoy the show!
