Phil Gerbyshak - LinkedIn Expert

Phil Gerbyshak and I met through LinkedIn. 

He sent me a connection request. We connected. We had a video chat about LinkedIn. Then, when I went to Florida, we hung out (and laughed a lot!) in person.

Phil is my go-to guy for sales + LinkedIn. He’s charming, insightful, a great listener and has so much knowledge…I could talk to him all day. 

In our chat,  Phil talked about:

  • How sales people (and really anyone) can use LinkedIn to build relationships.
  • The “basics” of LinkedIn and what you need to focus on FIRST.
  • How he was able to get superstars like Seth Godin, Tom Peters and Ron Tite, on his shows.
    and soooo much more.

Hey Phil…“How many touchpoints does it take to make a sale?”

You’ll also learn what we disagree upon, and why I’m wearing glasses in public today. Something I haven’t done since about 1989 🙂 For more information about Phil, visit

Enjoy watching my chat with Phil!
