The Journey Needs To Be Completed

The Pipeline

By Tibor Shanto. We all know the expression “ A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” All well and good if you’re an ancient prophet without a quota, but in sales, it’s not good enough.

So, when pundits tell you the hardest part is getting started, it actually is not, it is finishing. The journey needs to be completed.

Telephone Prospecting By The Numbers

The Pipeline

By Tibor Shanto. Anything worth doing is worth doing right, and in sales, telephone prospecting is something worth doing and doing right. Challenge is that many don’t do it right, making the whole thing that much harder, and eventually not done.

Given the changes and opportunities in the market, it’s time for new legs on an old stool.
