058 The One with the Sales Energizer

It doesn’t matter what your job title is, you are a sales person.  Now granted, some are better that it than others, but we are all in sales no matter what we do.  I like to look at sales as something we do to help solve a problem for someone else.  Many look at it as I need to make this person do this, so I can make some money.  To those who say this, I say that if you motive is to help, the money will come, and you will have a lot more fun in the process.

Dan Jourdan calls himself the Sales Energizer.  Dan is an in your face kind of guy that can get you excited about going out there to sell something.  He is also good at not letting people he coaches “excuse” their way to failure.  There are 1,000 reason why to not do something.  The simple fact is, you could have done “that something” in the time you thought of all the excuses of why not to do it.  After you listen to Dan, you can tell he doesn’t live on excuses, he lives on action.
