Sales People Are The Extreme Athletes Of The Business World

A Sales Guy

I have nothing but love and respect for salespeople. You guys are the extreme athletes of the business world. Salespeople risk 50%, 60%, 70% and sometimes 100% of their salary in their job. You don’t get paid until you sell something. No one else takes that kind of risk in corporate America.

How to Sell Better: Lesson 8 – Learn to Ask Why

A Sales Guy

Kids are great at asking why? They accept the fact they don’t know very much, so they just move through life, like an information sponge asking why about everything. It’s kinda liberating if you think about it, if you accept that you don’t know anything. If you’re OK with the fact that you don’t know, then asking why is the natural thing to do.

“Amping Up” Your Pipeline Reviews

Partners in Excellence
