In episode 3, I spazz out on the complacency of sales people when it comes to getting better. We as sales people are unbelievably stubborn when it comes to personal growth and I’m sick and tired of it. Are you one of these people, don’t be.
Life has an uncanny knack of getting away from us. For many of us, life leads us; we don’t lead it.
