Top of Mind

What does it take to be an ace salesperson? The perfect product that is in demand? Great training, an incredible script, superior leads, a wonderful team that delivers on time and perfectly? What about better pricing than your competitors and industry respect? Could you name some other factors that would ensure your success? I’ll bet you could. However, none of these factors by themselves or in combination will not ensure your success.

In over 40 years of buying and selling I’ve heard every reason for success or lack thereof. I’ve seen this or that surefire sales technique, method, strategy or fad and, I’ve seen them reborn and recast in different names and at different times. Ever since the first wine was sold by a merchant perhaps 20,000 years ago some were good at it and some were not. Why are some more successful than others? Contact us today to find out.
