Prioritize finding the right sales skills in a new hire.

'I need to hire someone with industry experience.'


Actually, this is less important than you think.


Sure, hiring someone with it will save you the time required to teach them about it.


But the right sales skills are more critical to your overall success for the long haul.


A good salesperson can always learn your industry and products.


But it's nearly impossible to teach someone how to be curious, smart, and care about building relationships to put in the sweat equity that directly correlates to sales success.


Prioritize finding the right sales skills in a new hire.


If they have industry experience or a nice network, it's a bonus, not a cornerstone.


The cherry on top?


You'll be rewarded by hiring untapped powerhouses others with this mindset miss out on.


A winning strategy to take on this ridiculously competitive market.
