Be coachable.  Work hard.  Act with integrity.  Don't get frustrated and don't take it personal.  Be accepting of failure, and commit to learning from your mistakes. Always ask for feedback and look for ways to improve - never believe that you have maxed out your ability or knowledge.

I met up with Andrew Shapiro, the best foosball punter in sales, to find out why sales is a career worth pursuing. After he told me having your own book of business grows your entrepreneurial skills, I was sold.
He also shared his philosophy on the craft of sales and suggested all sales reps starting out should have an “advisory board” to help guide their ca...

Always act on it

Someone I met at an event last fall reached out to me a week ago. She saw my Q&A in our newsletter, The Deal, and wanted to say hi. We hadn't spoken since the event, and it was nice to hear from her; we did a Google Hangout for 30 minutes yesterday and chewed the fat about life in 2020 - sheltering in place, our favorite at-home lunch recipes, and what we're...

I think it has been great for the environment and wildlife. I hope it is also making us realise that we do not need a lot to survive.
