How long does it take to become great at selling?

You can’t be great at selling in your first three months. Few of us are.

The question is:

What will you do after that?

What will you do about the areas where you don’t have the knowledge, skills, or ability to be a quota crusher?

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly at first.

So…

Learn with zeal.

Sell with zeal.

Fail with zeal.

Work to find resources you can use to avoid being a mediocre rep.

Find a mentor that will challenge you to improve.

Find new and better ways to get better…

It’s unlikely that doing MORE of what’s NOT working… is going to make you a better seller.

P.S: I scout stoic sales reps for companies. If you need one, click here for all the details.
