Thanks so much for taking the next step in our journey together.
As I mentioned, I promise to provide you only the BEST tips, strategies, and actionable advice I know. And if at any time you feel I’m not doing that. Please let me know. I read and answer all my own emails.
In a few day’s you’ll receive the first email focusing exclusively on sales tips and generally how to be a better sales person. If you have any suggestions or specific topics you’d like me to cover, let me know or leave a comment below.
I care about helping you be successful.
To me, sales is more than a career, it’s a passion. I’ve been doing it (professionally) for over 15 years now and EVERYDAY is a new adventure.
If you’re new to sales you may not quite comprehend what that means. And for those that are a little more tenured, I imagine you feel pretty similar at times.
You know the good times are great, and the bad times can be pretty damn bad.
And while every sales person is bound to run into bad times, my ultimate goal is to help reduce those troughs by educating folks to move beyond the basics and turn them into true sales professionals.
I’ll do this by showcasing tactical and strategic moves that anyone can make to help close that million dollar deal.
You want that too which is why you’re here.
To give you a brief history of my experience, I’ve been in sales for over 15 years serving in every capacity there is. I’ve been an Admin, Support, Inside Sales, Outside Sales, Business Development, and Strategic Accounts. I’ve even dipped my toes in the marketing aspects of sales.
I’ve been professionally trained in various sales methodologies, my favorite being the Sandler Selling System.
I also have numerous awards under my belt including Presidents Club, Circle of Excellence, and Killer Closer. The names vary but these are the awards reserved for the top tiered sales reps in any company.
I’ve also been featured as a judge for the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
The Sales Pro Blog is meant to be a repository of all my knowledge and experience in sales. My goal is to share my expertise to help others be more successful in sales.
Now that you’ve started on this journey with me I have a few posts I think you might like.
