K, peeps! I’m very excited to announce the Real Deal of Sales Sales Channel in partnership with Hubspot. The Real Deal of Sales is a sale channel about and for sales people. The people in the field.

Who Helped Me the Most in 2016? — Chris Brogan That’s Who!

No one is successful by themselves. I don’t care who you are. If you believe any success you’ve had is 100% created all by yourself, you’re an asshole. Yeah, I said it. No one is successful alone, no one. Don’t be an asshole. Yes, we all work hard. And our success is ultimately attached to our own efforts, but we live in a connected world that requires the help, insight, support, guidance, and friendship of

How We Made Lemonade Out of Lemons

Earlier this year, as many of the readers here know, we at A Sales Guy had big, bold, and somewhat risky marketing stunt. You can read about it and it’s abject failure here. In a nutshell, we were going to do a pop-up event for Virgin America’s inaugural flight to Denver from San Francisco. The plan was to show up at the for the first flight from Denver to San Francisco. We were going to

Do You Like to Consume Video?

As many of you have noticed, I’ve been doing A LOT more video. I’m obsessed with it. I think video tells a much better story. It’s taps so many more of our senses. It’s more fun and in many cases, easier to consume. In spite of my obsession, I suck at it. Video is not easy. They take a lot of work. Unlike writing you can’t just sit down and put out a video. It takes

I’m Still Here

Hey peeps, I’m sure some of you have been wondering, where the hell have I been. My blogging is down. I know. It’s something I’ve been wrestling with for a while. I’m not producing nearly the number of posts this community has become accustomed to. The reason is three-fold. One, I’ve been blogging for 6 years and I’m struggling to come up with fresh, unique content every day. It’s frickin’ hard. I’ve got mad love

Martin Luther King Day — Is The Equality Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

I have been doing a lot of thinking about what to write today. The events of 2014 and Ferguson andMichael Brown, Eric Gardner and I can’t breathe, Tamir Rice and the toy gun, and John Crawford and Walmart have pushed many people to question how far has this country really progressed when it comes to race?

Who Wants to Go Skiing With Me?

OK, who wants to go skiing with me? As most of you know, I’m an avid skier. Last year I logged over 1 million vertical feet. I’m also a PSIA Level 2 ski instructor. I love skiing. It is a phenomenal experience. It’s challenging and relaxing. It’s cerebral and ethereal. It’s great alone or with a group. You can do it when you’re young or old. It’s fun on AND off the hill.  It truly

A Sick New Look for A Sales Guy Blog . . . What do You Think?

It’s been over 3 years since A Sales Guy had a facelift, so I thought it was time to mix things up a bit. What do you think? Since the A Sales Guy blog launched 5 years ago, we’ve added a consulting division, a recruiting division, a selling university and a speaking division all under the A Sales Guy brand. That is a lot and therefore I wanted to create a central hub for the
