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

What you don't know about retirement...

Quick question. "You say If you delay signing up for Medicare at age 65, significant penalties will apply." Do you mean delaying signing up for Medicare after 65 - I thought you can't sign up until you're 65 years old. By Vicki Felmlee on 2014 10 09
