    5 Characteristics of Highly Successful Independent Sales Teams

    in Marketing

    A growing trend is to build business by paying the sales team on performance.


    Companies who need sales contract with independent sales reps (commission only sales reps) who represent the company's products or services. The independent sales representative is not an employee, but rather an independent contractor. The sales rep may represent multiple companies and products or services, usually within a very well-defined geography and industry.


    Finding great independent sales reps can be tough. There is a much higher demand for great independent sales reps than there is supply. And if not recruited and qualified and managed well, independent sales teams may not be successful at all.

    “I’m not just talking about knowing the winning lottery numbers an hour in advance to a drawing; I mean important and human lessons in life that we learn and feel deeply after potentially painful trial and error,” he says.
    The saying applies to relationships, achieving a sense of self-acceptance and satisfaction in life and, of course, business. How many missteps does the average employee make throughout a career, and how much better off would one have been without having to make such costly mistakes?
    Parviz says he has learned some important lessons after 25 years of founding several multi-million dollar companies. He shares his lessons with Dr. Pat and the listeners.

    Well, What If Donald Trump Wins? Daily Gogetemism #496

    in Lifestyle

    As much as I love my people, we need to cut it out. We have been divided for centuries over skin complexion, hair texture, location, gang afliation, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, nationality,etc etc etc. The divisions go on forever. Will we unite if Donald Trump becomes president? Not likely right? 


    So what are we afraid of really? What has happened to us as far as the government is concerned to make us think that ANY candidate will be any better than the ones we have had for our situation? 


    Really, save for president Obama, what has ANY president done for US?
