Eliminate Your Fear & Accelerate Sales


    Are you part of a technology company wanting to grow and scale?


    Is lack of sales capability and poor sales results holding you back?


    Most founders have deep technical expertise, however fear of selling and/or poor sales technique stalls their progress. As a technology founder myself, I wasted a lot of time and energy in sales paralysis mode!


    Hi, I'm Nick Burns, helping tech companies sell more technology, faster.


    I inspire, teach and coach founders and team members to scale their technology businesses domestically and internationally.


    I spent over 15 years of trial and error creating sustainable sales success, and achieved a successful trade sale exit to a fortune 10 company.


    Let me save you time and pain by showing you how you can accelerate your sales.
