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.


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.
