PERPETUALLY PROSPECTING: (At our core we must be Prospectors)


BUY THE  BOOK:  Fanatical Prospecting

Some Highlighted Areas to share with you:

This is the brutal truth: In sales you are owed nothing! You’ve got to get your ass up and go out there and make things happen yourself. You have to pick up the phone, knock on doors, make presentations, and ask for business. Sales is not a nine-to-five job. There are no days off. No vacations. No lunch breaks. The great salespeople are skipping meals and doing deals—whatever it takes to win.”

“In sales, business, and life, there are only three things you can control: Your Actions Your Reactions Your Mindset”

“There is no sugarcoating it. Prospecting sucks.“

“Thirsty for knowledge: Fanatical prospectors welcome feedback and coaching. They seek out every opportunity to learn and invest in themselves by voraciously consuming books, podcasts, audiobooks, blog posts, online training, live seminars, and anything else they believe will make them better. They have an unshakable belief that everything happens for a reason and through this lens view setbacks as opportunities to learn and grow.”


“The majority of salespeople don’t track their numbers. Why? Because it is so much easier to delude themselves into thinking that they have made far more calls or prospecting touches than they have really made. The false comfort of delusion is warm and fuzzy and far more inviting than the cold edge of reality.”
