In this episode, Ken Lundin joins us to talk about the invaluable journey of going through hardships, admitting to failure, breaking the cycle of passive accountability, and how we can get back up and show up stronger.
Ken Lundin, founder of Ken Lundin & Associates and creator of the Sales Alpha Roadmap, found his mission while standing in his front lawn in Atlanta in 2011, when he learned from the people who had purchased it that his house had been sold by the bank. With his business - and the last 6 years of his life - up in smoke, he took a mid-level sales position and over the course of the next 2 years was offered 2 promotions attaining the role of SVP of Sales within two years. With his unique perspective on thriving during difficult times and his considerable sales acumen, he soon became a consultant in order to bring his systematic process to other companies, helping them adapt to difficult changes and to thrive in uncertain times.

“You get so many companies who have small amounts of visibility into their company that you know, they're doing a six bucks or a million bucks in sales now, and they're living a lifestyle dream when they have so much more to offer the world. ” - Ken Lundin
“If I can think about how I personally show up differently, that's going to create a different result on its own. I don't have to chase the money; I don't have to chase the dream. I have to be the person I'm supposed to be. And then the rest of those things will follow.” - Natalie Born
“I'm very protective of my emotional energy, you know, and so from that perspective, if it doesn't come into my three-foot circle, which is representative of things that I can actually influence change, and I put zero emotional energy into it.” - Ken Lundin
