The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Liz, Killer stuff.......your articles always help bring out the very best in me. Sam By Cold Call King on 2014 10 15

Growing old isn't for sissies

There are more substantive questions to prompt: Why does your parent need to move? Is there a cognitive issue? Is there a physical safety issue? Are they in the same town or state? Has your parent developed a will, power of attorney documents and designated a family member to assist with these affairs? Are you aware of a KELS exam to assess cognition and personal safety? This validates too the ability to self-administer medications as well as the ability to prepare food, eat it on time, and store it safely. Does the elder care facility offer sliding services for someone who has a cognitive decline but is not yet ready for memory care? An assisted care facility is not a nursing home and does not provide that level of care. Who are the local physician care services and do they visit the facility; do they have a good reputation?

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Those negative thoughts and lots of head trash get to my sales people every time. Our Monday morning meetings sound like the one you described. I know this is something that is too big to ignore. Thanks for the reminder. Janice By Janice on 2014 10 13

Top nine scariest things about running a business

Great Article. As a small business owner myself (this is my third) I think #5 is the most challenging. When you are running a small business it seems like nobody is as passionate as you are about the business. The staffing and management have been the biggest challenges for us. Thanks again for the article By Glen Weinberg: Colorado Hard money lender on 2014 10 13

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Nice job Liz. I just shared this with my team in Colorado and our others 4 offices in the US. We call that "stuff" you talk about head trash as well. We joke around the office about taking out the trash. So thanks for the laugh, the reminder and your words of wisdom. Steve By steve on 2014 10 13

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Thanks Glen. The #2 sales killer is a close second to #1. Rejection. How it is perceived and ultimately how it is handled are key to sales success. Liz By Liz Wendling on 2014 10 13

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Very interesting article; I would agree negative thoughts is the number one sales killer. As I read the article I thought beyond negative thoughts, what is the number two sales killer? In my opinion how rejection is handled is number two. I can't count how many times I spent on a transaction only for the prospect to let me know they were not going to move forward; handling this gracefully in about 40-50% of the time the prospect comes back around. Thanks again for the thought provoking article By Glen Weinberg on 2014 10 13

this entire structure is supported and subsidized by the federal gov, grants, Colorado taxpayers ,reimbursements. and tax exempt status. This place would not achieve a profitable status if it had to operate and fund itself. By anschutz employee on 2014 10 12
