Salespeople Grow by Learning and Mentoring Each Other

SalesHood is a
community where salespeople learn from each other and mentor each other.  SalesHood inspires sales teams to share real life
sales experiences and best practices.
SalesHood helps sales managers facilitate engaging conversations among sales teams that are educational, impactful and fun.  The result is highly motivated and productive
salespeople.

The SalesHood Story

The word “SalesHood” emerged as a concept to us upon reflection
on what makes sales teams great.  Successful
sales teams shared with us that they felt connected to one another.   They learn from each other.  Successful sales teams have a shared
experience and consciousness around how to sell and how to win.

With this feedback
in mind, we thought a lot about the words community, consciousness, and
experience in the context of the sales world.  Words like “Zen” emerged as inspirational
concepts. We landed on the word selfhood meaning “…a fully developed self.”  We
asked ourselves: “What would a fully developed sales professional look
like?  How would a salesperson realize
his or her full potential better and faster?  The word SalesHood emerged and the amazing
part of this story is that the URL was available, too!  On March 15, 2013, we registered the domain.

Below is an image of the first time the founders of SalesHood met.
