    Pre-Call Planning is the Key to Sales Call Success

    in Business

    Lively discussion with Lisa Magnuson:  Pre-Call Planning your Single Source for Prospecting Success


    When was the last time your team closed a seven-figure deal?  Despite the best sales talent, many high potential, big contracts either get whittled down, end up stalled, or are lost completely.  Large, strategic accounts are complex and require a very different approach to identify, develop and win.  Can you afford to chase smaller opportunities at the expense of bigger deals that can exponentially change your company’s growth curve?


    Top Line Sales has a proven track record of guiding account teams to land larger deals.  We’re proud to have enabled our clients to land over $100 million in new contracts.  We are not simply advice-givers - we work side-by side with your account executives, running deal war rooms, applying just-in-time expertise, tools and live deal coaching where it counts: in the field.


    Example: Top Line Sales helped one of their TOP Line Account War Room clients land a contract for a new customer worth 20m – their second largest deal in the country for that solution set

    Endtime Restoration of The Harp in Worship and Intercession

    in Lifestyle

    In these end-times, as God is restoring the Tabernacle of David (Amos 9, Acts 15:16-17) He is again calling for the renewing of the playing of the harp in intercession and worship around the world.


    As a psalmist, Michael is not only a classically trained musician, but he also teaches from decades of contemporary music experience and passionate spiritual insight. His instruction emphasizes technical and theoretical aspects of improvisational music, as well as the release of the prophetic and the “Gifts of the Spirit”. Michael along with his wife Zsiporah (author/singer) are a Messianic couple who challenge artists to a higher level of spiritual and artistic integrity in their work as Directors of the KingsBridge Arts Round Table, a Christian Arts organization based in the Toronto area in Canada.


    Psalm 33:2 Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright. 2Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings. 3Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy

    Dark Sayings Upon the Harp

    in The Bible

    David's harp is without solution, or parallel.......fitful spirits seem ever to contend for mastery within its strings.......wailings of sorrow; groans of pain; shadows of doubt, despair, wonder, and fear; all show their face within its music.......enemies of the nation; enemies of the soul rage as if grace were driven away by the surges of passion and grief within.......and so these dark sayings upon the harp rise before Heaven, as the fist of rage in the face of chaos.......


     


    Man himself, is a dark saying on a harp.......are not we who sing, a universe of being within ourselves, in whom life, nature, and grace combine to make the unique music of our own harps? Man's soul is engraved, as it were, with dark sayings.......chamber on chamber of imagery, covered in mists and hues, they are there; and they are within.......it does seem that we are, at times, possessed of a consciousness, that is more than experience.......it is the music, seeking to resolve the discord within, and express itself in a being of inextinguishable sorrow, separated from his only hope.......and when our harp whispers the music of light,the dark saying on its soul flies before the tone.

    Sales Rep Kryptonite? CLOSING!

    in Business

    Sales Rep Kryptonite? CLOSING!


     


    It’s true there are salespeople out there who actually “Sell” products/services for a living…..that HATE to CLOSE customers. Literally I’ve been on ride-alongs with sales reps making calls on customers where I see them physically shake with nervousness when it came time to ask the customer to buy. I’ve never met a salesperson who doesn’t like to talk including myself so to witness this irony where you have someone present their product with such confidence actually wilt when it comes time to ask a customer for the sell is quite baffling.


    During this show we'll have the #1 Best-Seller Author of ":60 seconds to YES" Don Spini help us to decipher the "WHY", and "HOW" to break this apprehension sales reps have with "Closing". During this time of year as many companies are close to closing their year-end sales forecasting book, sales reps are scrambling to make sure they execute on their year-end sales quota......"Closing" is CRITICAL.


    I hope you join me for what I think will be a highly charged and inspirational show!
