What a wonderful world …

At the Air­port last week, had some time to kill before my con­nec­tion so I decided to get a shine. (At this point let me say that a shoe shine is one of THE best things you can ever do. Some­one fusses over you, it’s cheap, there’s imme­di­ate grat­i­fi­ca­tion, and your shoes look great.) For reasons […]

Get Out Of Your Own Way

This is one of those top­ics that requires some self aware­ness. And, some desire to actu­ally NOT rel­ish in the dis­trac­tions of your job. I know so many peo­ple who just can’t get out of their own way. They spin up inter­nal BS; they med­dle with use­less part­ner reps; or they focus on the details […]

The Thrill of the Sale

Twenty-one days into the month and I had zero on the books. Null. Zip. Noth­ing. You get the pic­ture. How­ever, the sit­u­a­tion was bright­ened with an appoint­ment so I got busy. Get­ting up early, I did my pre-call research and gath­ered all my mate­ri­als. Arriv­ing early, I greeted the par­tic­i­pants of the meet­ing with a smile […]

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 […]

To webex or not to webex

I was in my sec­ond sales job (copiers) when my manger took her team to a Zig Zigler sem­i­nar.  At one point Zig drew this on his over­head pro­jec­tor: “THIS!” he pro­claimed, “is THE secret to sales.” As I stared at it try­ing to fig­ure what the hell it was, Zig said: “Belly to Belly”. Good one, Zig.  […]

I’m rel­a­tively new to this sell­ing thing all things con­sid­ered. So, maybe this is just me being naïve. Or maybe it’s a rev­e­la­tion that will shock all of you, but I have recently dis­cov­ered the great irony of sales. What I’ve always heard my col­leagues and peers in sales say is not unlike what The Sales […]
