Start defining yourself

What are some good sales engagement tools?

Why are platforms like Twitter and Instagram not getting the same love as Linkedin when it comes to prospecting and sales?

I've got goals, yes I do, I got goals, how bout you?!

I look forward to my birthday every year.


Not for the gifts or the parties.


But it's because it's during that week when I set my goals for the next year.

First, sales is not a 10,000 piece puzzle. It’s more like a children’s 10 piece puzzle.


We overcomplicate sales on a daily basis.


We pretend as though somehow it’s this thing you’ve got to get a diploma ...
