Episode 70: [RANT] If You Can't Take The Heat....

Sales is a pressure game. Hero one day, goat the next. What have you done for me lately. Quotas, disappearing prospects, price pressure, objections, bitching, lying, deadlines, wild goose chases. New research shows that only 50% of sales reps will make quota. The 10th year in a row this metric has taken a dive. Can you handle this? 50% of us can. What about the other half? Do you use pressure as fuel or do you fold up tent and go into your excuse routine? Dan discusses what sales reps need to do in looking back on 2018 and prepping for 2019. He also calls out sales leadership for a poor job in 2018. Those quota numbers are on them too. Another RANT to help us shift into high gear and crush our numbers! Can you take it?
