I believe attitude is everything! When I’m not administering sales tips and time management techniques, my clients know I’m good for some straight up attitude adjustments. This is a complete list of all my motivational blog posts.
Here you’ll read about ways to overcome gossip, write powerful affirmations, and have a winning attitude in all areas of your life.
Learn how ten, positive emotions can drive you forward when faced with life’s challenges.
Salespeople and business leaders face challenges, setbacks, and disappointments every week. If you’re in business, it happens! Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive.
Unfortunately, a negative attitude can destroy your motivation. Over time, it hurts your business, your career, and your personal life. Maintaining a positive attitude is often the biggest hurdle a salesperson must overcome.
No matter where you’re at in your sales career, it’s not too late to avoid these common regrets.
Regret can make your life miserable. It can even force you to leave a career you once loved. After coaching and consulting hundreds of sales professionals and business owners, I’ve met plenty of successful people who wish they could do a few things differently.
Across this diverse group of people, these four regrets have come up over and over again:
Is your business fighting technology, or embracing it? Uncover why technology is actually your friend.
Last month I overheard someone saying modern technology was killing communication. “Why don’t we just pick up the phone anymore?”
Most of us take today’s technology for granted. It’s easy to forget that emails, texting, video calls, and social media are fairly recent inventions. Understandably, some people find all this change in such a short time overwhelming. They meet it with resistance and negativity.
But is tech really the worst thing for our lives and our businesses? I don’t think so. In fact, I love our technologically advanced world. Technology is our friend!
You can’t stand at the top if you never know where you stand.
As a sales coach, I’m all about goals. My goal is to help salespeople achieve their goals—both personal and professional.
Every salesperson should know what their sales goals are. You might not have mastered them yet, but at the very least, you have a number you’re planning on hitting for the year. The goal is set—just start selling, right?
You’re #1—but do you still have a scarcity mindset?
In The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey describes two opposing views: the scarcity mindset, ruled by a fear of limited resources (you should get your piece of the pie before someone else gets it), and the abundance mindset, in which you believe there’s always enough to go around.
I’ll let you guess which mindset is most common in highly effective people! (Spoiler alert! It’s the abundance mindset.)
Top sales performers usually think they’re living in an abundant mindset. They know they’ll never run out of clients. They know that there’s plenty of money in the world, and the success of another salesperson on their team isn’t a threat, but something to be celebrated. They’ve figured out how to use the abundance mentality in sales.
However, after years of working as a sales coach with top producers, I’ve discovered a few areas where scarcity creeps into a salesperson’s mentality—even when they’re the most successful producers on a team. One of the most common symptoms I see: a salesperson who can’t stop answering their phone. I know you’re thinking, “but Dew, you wrote a post about sales rock stars answering their phone,” but hear me out on this one.
