Sales, the final frontier.
Sorry, the phrase, "the final frontier", are the words from the hit, sci-fi show "Star Trek".
Well, you now have a business or maybe you have been practicing your trade for a few years.
The trend over the last 5-10 years has been to move away from connecting with people in face-to-face or telephone conversation in favor of "engaging" them over the Internet.
If you really want to be successful in selling, you can continue using digital platforms but you must realize that sales is a people business. It always has been, and it always will be.
Don't be afraid. You can do it. It's fun.
Try it today.

Sales training. Sales training is not product training. Sales training is learning how to relate to prospects in a way favorable such that, both, the agent and the prospect have meaningful, two-way dialogue during the sales interview.
Personal development. This area involves keeping a positive attitude when you do not feel like working. Personal development reduces anxiety and frustration so you will not beat yourself up.
Core beliefs. This is the set of values that defines you. No one can take these from you. Your core beliefs can accelerate your sales performance. Or, your core beliefs can dampen your sales performance.
If your core beliefs are not aligned with good sales performance and revenue expectations, you can develop new components to establish a new belief system... but it is not easy. You have had your current core beliefs for the last 25, 35, 45, or 55 years.
But here's one thing I learned and use to help salespersons. Getting all three-sales training, personal development and core beliefs-to fire in harmony starts with sales training.
If you do not know how to sell, while trying to improve personal development skills and working from your current belief system, functioning as a salesperson becomes extremely frustrating.
Why? Because personal development training is not sales training, and this results in salespersons working too hard trying to wing it with prospects. Salespersons will often spend years and thousands of dollars on personal development training and never learn how to sell.
Sales training helps clear the fog about what you are selling. Here's how:
Learning how to sell and generate more income, the mind becomes more receptive to personal development training.
Next, personal development training exposes negative core beliefs that need to change.
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?

God's truth is very simple. Even though we tend to expect complicated and convoluted revelations from the Word of God, God speaks small words and phrases to guide us when we have to make important decisions. Even though God's words/ revelations are usually with a still, small voice, the wealth of information that flows therefrom is very powerful and instructional. I thank God for simple truth and simple revelation

It's incredible when you can add a new dish to your Easter menu without a lot of fuss or frustration. This recipe is one of those dishes! A creamy recipe made with pudding, Cool Whip & pineapple, it's simple enough for a weeknight dinner & special enough for Holiday meals.
This is also the perfect dish to take along for a potluck. If you are out of time, you can easily prepare it for your event. I like to stock up on the ingredients so I can always be ready to make this wonderful salad for friends & family. Enjoy!

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!
