Like "The Purge" but for sales.. 1 day a year where you can say whatever you want to prospects

Hey friends - I'm new here, go easy on me ๐Ÿ˜…


So, when I'm physically talking to prospects in our pipeline, I'm typically selling contracts north of 15k.. but we have a self-serve starter product on our website that's $59 a month. It's the bane of my existence. From time to time, I get a tire kicker tell me "actually, I'm just going to start with that [starter] plan and work my way up" (I knowโ€”an issue for another day).


Well, got another one today after going through a few calls. Totally fine, but they wanted a contract, legal and infosec review ๐Ÿคก (for $59).


So it got me thinking... wouldn't it be nice if I could just tell the prospect what I really thought of their request?


Proposal: 1 day a year where sales people can say whatever they want to prospects with no repercussions ๐Ÿ™Œ


Thoughts? (I hope I offer some comedic relief for a Monday)

It would definitely be cathartic. But also probably devastating for business. Lol

How do you keep yourself motivated under pressure? Yes, I've heard of the usual responses like "finding your why" & "aligning yourself", etc. But I just want to get to the meat of the solution. Are there any specific tactics you guys use to keep yourselves motivated?
