HI Daniel,

Another great post. #8 is my favorite, and at least in my mind the most critical.

Be sold on yourself. If we don't believe in ourselves, our products and our services, why would anyone else?


Another seminal piece from you, thanks.
I would rank #1 as number one, then #6 and then #8 with the remainder in any order.

Hi Daniel, found your blog through the group writing project, and I have to say I like it a lot. The first point is truly the most important - if you are sold on yourself, everything else will fall into place, given time!

Self confidence is the hardest to acheive because you must continue to believe even though others do not.

Hi Daniel,

I have to agree with Albert. I also found your blog through the group writing project.

Pt #8 rings with me. Too many salepeople fail because they put the sales/transaction before the benefits of the customers.

You have my vote for this contest. :)

Great list. "Genuinely care about others" is so important, it probably should be number 1 or 2 on the list.

Hi Daniel,

I came here from the Litmind GWP and glad I did. This is a great overview on what it takes not only for success in sales, but also in life.

Is there any research done on whether a goat tee has an influence whether a customer will close with someone that has a goat tee over a sales person without? and is this not dependant upon the fact how mature a sales person looks? In my last professional sales training we were told that younger sales professionals that look immature might choose to grow their moustache or goat tee in order to look more mature. Do you have any advice on this.

Hi, Daniel
Thank you so much for such insight into the world of sales,I like especially the fact that the ultimate sales person is one who cares about others,since there are so many selfish sales people on earth, when one is caring, he is in fact left with no competition in his field

Thank you once more

Truth is the torch, but also a huge torch. Therefore, we want to go over his eyes, or even worried about being burned.
