Hello and welcome to the Sales Insights with Sarah podcast. In this episode, Sarah Downs interviews Amelia about selling in business like a nurse with empathy and as human to human.
Amelia has been a connector since birth. She loves connecting people together and when it came to thinking about after soon was that she would end up being a teacher or a nurse. Amelia has been a registered nurse since 2006. The sales profession came later.
