With our smartphones in our hands throughout most of the day and our Bluetooth car connections, it’s no wonder people don’t buy books anymore. If you’re looking for a cute story, comic relief, or sales advice, you can pull it up on your phone and listen while you drive to your next appointment. Sales podcasts are a great way for you to spend your time while you’re driving from appointment to appointment. You may just learn something.
