Poppin’ Pills

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Casey came home from the doctor looking very worried.  His wife said, “What’s the problem?”

He said, “The doctor told me I have to take a pill every day for the rest of my life.”

She said, “So what?  Lots of people have to take a pill every day their whole lives.”

He said, “I know, but he only gave me four pills.” – Hal Roach

Hey sales pro – how much time do you have left?

What are you doing to survive in a tough economy?

Do you know a quick fix for slow sales?

One strategy is to work harder, but that only tires you out, wrecking your health and your family life.

Or you can cut back on costs. Every sales rep should be on a tight personal budget. It helps you make more money, without having to make more money. Get it? You take more home by spending less.

Or you can take the slow fix, getting better at skills you use in front of prospects.

What pill will you pop?

I recommend all of them.

The mixture can’t hurt you – and you might be surprised at how much longevity you buy when you implement all three approaches simultaneously.
