Will Barron is the host of the Salesman Red podcast. Its goal is to help sales professionals close more deals but also to tackle the unspoken issues within the sales industry such as high levels of stress, the negative stereotype of the salesperson and long term success. Will doesn’t consider himself an “expert” or Guru”. Will is firstly and firmly a sales professional and asks the questions his audience wants to hear because he personally wants to know the answer too.
