Learn Effective Energy Management Using 4 Powerful Tactics

On Episode 152 of The No Limits Selling Podcast, we have Mary Grothe, a former #1 MidMarket B2B SaaS Sales Rep who after selling millions in revenue and breaking multiple records, formed Sales BQ®, an outsourced RevOps firm of fractional VPs of Sales, Sales Ops, and CMO's who serve companies across the nation by profitably rebuilding their sales & marketing departments and growing their revenue by focusing on BQ, the behavioral quotient, and proven inbound + outbound strategies.


Mary began her professional career at age 22, working with a Fortune 1000 Payroll/HR company. Starting at just $13/hour in an admin role, she quickly acquired the skills, education, and training required to advance into mid-market sales. Mary found her sales success by listening to her clients and always solving their needs; putting their agenda before hers. Even in times when her sales approach was the direct inverse of what corporate was enforcing, she knew in her heart what was right, leveraging emotional, intellectual, and behavioral intelligence.

With multiple TOP 10 finishes and millions in revenue sold, she left to pursue a journey of understanding the Human Behavior Intelligence that drives high-growth sales and is now dedicating her professional career to helping companies drive growth.


Mary Grothe can speak to various topics that fall under executive leadership, sales success, motivational, and spiritual keynotes. Your attendees will thank you for booking Mary on the main stage or breakout session. She captures their attention immediately and keeps them engaged throughout. Mary has sat through dozens of poorly constructed sessions with nonengaging speakers and non-relevant topics with no actionable takeaways.

She knows what NOT to do. She ensures your audience is engaged, and participatory, and can implement several key takeaways immediately following the event. She conducts extensive pre-training interviews with your key stakeholders to learn your business inside and out, learn the key sales and revenue challenges that need attention, and delivers an easy-to-follow session that your attendees will rave about because it’s relevant to them, their market, their buyer, their competition, their product or service, and what they hope to achieve in the next coming months.
