Refocusing Your Mindset to THIS Cliché will Sky Rocket Your Sales with Robert Elliott

Host Liam Leonard invites our newest guest, Aussie and booming business man Robert Elliott into the conversation on today’s episode of the Prosperity Perspective Podcast. Robert began his business ownership experience before he was old enough to work; his parents ran a pub all of his young life, and Rob was taking notes.

Robert has now taken those skills and a plethora of additional insights due to his past with business ownership and investment choices to become the thriving business coach and author that he is today.

About Robert Elliott:

Being brought in the family hospitality business exposed Rob to sales and the importance of community at an early age. Watching his parents navigate

difficult customers and the expectations of people while at the same time run a profitable business ensured that when he moved to full time sales roles he had all the tools needed. Those same tools have enabled him to become very skilled in public presenting, training as well as giving back to his community through volunteering and raising much needed funds for charities close to his heart. Roberts' mantra is “Just be you.”
