This is sell without selling, episode 8. Hey, this is Krista Crotty, president and CEO of Velocity Business Strategists. If you want to learn how to create a six figure and seven figure business from the science of success strategists that I’ve worked closely with over the past couple of years, significantly increase your revenue, and learn how to successfully build professional relationships, you should be listening to Sell Without Selling podcast with my good friend, Stacey O’Byrne.


Stacey: Krista, thanks for coming on today. Welcome to the show.

Krista: Thank you Stacey for having me. It’s a pleasure to be here.

Stacey: So, you were an engineer. How does one go from engineering to what you do today?

Krista: When one realizes that I wanted to be in more control of what I was doing. I wanted to, as you’ve said, as I’ve heard people say, I want to build the life that I want versus build a business for someone else. I worked in corporate engineering for almost 10 years, and one of the best compliments I was ever paid was at a conference after I left corporate, went into consulting for myself, and a colleague of mine that we had spoken at several conferences together came up to me after he had heard my introduction, we actually happened to be in the same pod of 3 speakers, he came up to me afterwards and was like, “I never knew you worked at IBM. I would have never pictured you as an IBM-er.” I was like, “You know what? That’s actually a compliment. Thank you.” So I have never fit the corporate mold. I’ve never really fit into that box, and once I realized that, it’s what moved me from the corporate world into what I do now.
