In today’s episode of Selling in Color, Donald discusses the idea of being first. Whether you’re the first person of color selling in an organization or your first family member to join the sales industry, there are challenges and benefits to being first.
Donald experienced being first.
Don’t focus on the naysayers.
With momentum from those first people of color in various organizations, and thanks to communities like Sales for the Culture, Sistas in Sales, and even this podcast, we’re bringing attention to this topic to help make the next generation more inclusive and accessible for all people of color.
It’s not always easy or convenient to be first. But what you’re doing for people of color down the line is inspiring.

Are you sick of crickets? As a salesperson, the pain of reaching out with phone calls or emails and not receiving a response is real.
But all text messaging is not created equal. 85% of people prefer text over email and phone calls because they want to engage in a conversation, not listen to bots. Be more like people and start having conversations that end in the conversions you want. Try Skipio at www.Skipio.com.
