Question from the Audience: "Most of my sales meetings have been remote, how can I lead a team of people that have so many distractions going on in their home offices? I feel like I'm not leading them well, remotely." We dive right into how to lead better while you're working with a team remotely.
Hacks, Tips, Tricks, and Gadgets:
We listen better when we're relaxed, so Sue thought this would be the perfect episode to recommend a new foot massager she got. I asked if it tickles, because if you know me, you know I hate being tickled. Sometimes I still giggle when I get my feet done at a nail spa! Sue says this foot massager doesn't tickle. She describes it like this, "It hurts so good!" If you're looking for a little gadget to help you relax this, foot massager is the way to go! It fits men up to size 12 and women up to size 14.
