Face the Fear
The quiet part out loud. We were at that place in the customer’s buying journey where they needed to commit, or we needed to move on.  We were spending too much time, energy, and money to the point where the sale would not be worth it anymore. Plus, we were not spending time on other …

Three simple words
If you’re selling SaaS and delivering demos, here’s something simple that has worked for me to close more sales, more quickly. Two qualifications for this approach to work well: 1. Your demo has gone well. 2. The person or people on the demo either needs to be decision-makers or report to the decision-maker(s). Here goes: …

We win or we learn
We win or we learn. Sounds simple, right. But, in the heat of a disappointing sales loss, missed job promotion, or failed job interview, we’re typically more engulfed by the disappointment. If we don’t learn from our losses, mistakes, failures, it just compounds the disappointment. Next time you’re knocked back on your heels, try asking …
