My Wife’s Cooking…

… is so bad, our veterinarian says our cat has only four lives left.

And you might find it hard to believe but our goldfish haven’t fared well either.

How many lives do you have left in your sales career?

Many reps bounce from job to job because good, even mediocre salespeople can always find work. Plus, they can certainly persuade a manager to hire them.

Longevity in a company, and an industry, and a territory will give you regular increases in income as your reputation, knowledge and experience pay off.

Don’t be so quick to jump ship when things get tough. Stay the course and your performance will improve as prospects and clients in your marketplace begin to feel comfortable with you and can count on you to be there for them.

If you’ve been somewhere more than 15 years, I congratulate you and invite you to come have dinner with us sometime.

I’ll cook.
