Out of Air

Are you run­ning out of air or are you mis­read­ing the objec­tive….. Let’s say you’re on the beach, swim­ming just off shore. You notice a shiny object on the ocean floor. You go back to the beach, grab your snorkel and fins, and head back out. On the way out you see the tide com­ing in. […]

The new gatekeeper

More and more of my accounts have con­tracted with  ven­dor man­age­ment com­pa­nies and are con­trol­ling the patrolling  inside their com­pa­nies. What a waste of time and money! Not just mine, but theirs.  Sales peo­ple bring real value expos­ing busi­ness lead­ers to new tech­nol­ogy,  ser­vices and best prac­tices. Sure, I under­stand that busi­ness lead­ers can’t  have […]

Time to get busy!

What have you done for me lately?   What??? Well it’s that time of year again and with the econ­omy the way it is, it’s been that time of year — all year. Kudos to the lead­ers that bagged the big one and prayers for the oth­ers that have them on the hook and are try­ing to […]

Integrity & Promises

What’s in a promise? More and more we have to promise more and more.  Sell it , make that weekly nut, take a breath, and do it all over again, and again, and again. One of the most dif­fi­cult things to over­come is the del­i­cate bal­ance between integrity and accom­plish­ment. Those nomads in the land of […]

Product or Service? Service or Product?

Do you sell the Ser­vice or the Prod­uct? In all the sell cycles I have ever been in there is an argu­ment for lead­ing with either.  I must say that sell­ing the ser­vice and giv­ing the prod­uct away has always seemed the smarter choice but almost no one  does it that way.   A few exceptions […]

Lovin’ your product

We know you love selling…But do you love your prod­ucts??? As a sales pro­fes­sional , when I’m watch­ing the TV, I can’t help but ana­lyze the prod­uct pitches in the com­mer­cials. I start think­ing to myself, man that guy is annoy­ing, but he is toooo smooth. Man that guy sucks,  or that guy was funny. I’m […]

Success Breeds Success

What hap­pened to the days when you sat down and reviewed ser­vice con­tracts for sales leads? You know, find those accounts you sold that kept renew­ing their main­te­nance because the prod­uct works so well? Nice and easy, you call them up and sell a multi year renewal for a dis­count (they win/you win, the com­mis­sion check […]

Half Time

So it’s mid year. You’ve cold called the crap out of your dirt, hit the ones you want, called the ones you need, and pushed the ones you know could use your prod­uct and noth­ings hap­pen­ing. You are so happy.…The wife and kids are at the pool, and com­plain­ing about the heat and being bored doing […]
