In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Matthew Pollard, founder and CEO of Rapid Growth, LLC.
Matthew's earlier years starkly contrast his present charismatic persona. Battling reading challenges, introversion, and career uncertainty, an Irlen syndrome diagnosis hindered his conventional reading abilities. Rather than surrendering, it spurred him to seek alternative learning methods.
Facing unemployment during a challenging period, Matthew delved into unconventional job opportunities, venturing into commission-based sales. Despite initial rejection and the harsh realities of the field, he persevered. Enduring closed doors, rejections, and navigating sales without formal guidance, he remained resolute.
Now, Matthew is a beacon of hope for introverts in the realm of sales, networking, leadership, entrepreneurship, and public speaking. His personal journey, marked by relentless dedication to mastering sales, has transformed into a mission to help others navigate similar challenges. He understands the unique struggles introverts face and aims to dismantle the misconception that success in fields like sales and networking is reserved only for extroverts.
Don’t miss this episode to learn about Matthew's journey—an inspiring tale of overcoming limits and redefining success. His story emphasises that success isn't bound by personality or talent; it's about embracing strengths, forging unique paths, and persistently striving for greatness.
"I realised dreaming alone won't cut it. You've got to be willing to put in the work. Remember Henry Ford's words: 'If you think you can or if you think you can't, you're right.'" - Matthew Pollard
In this value-packed episode you’ll learn:
- The importance of a structured business system over the hustle mentality.
- Why when it comes to sales, simplicity beats complexity.
- How focusing on your natural gifts is more effective than fixating on acquired knowledge or certifications.
- Why introverts possess innate strengths make them exceptional at sales.
- How to transform your networking by shifting to a passionate, mission-driven approach.
...and so much more!
"Introverts have an edge in sales when they use their analytical nature to improve systematically, stepping away from personal rejections." - Matthew Pollard
