Heartfelt Sales Professionals Live By The 3 P's... Are You?

One of the greatest gifts we have is our ability to choose how to live our life. I'm a firm believer that living with purpose does matter.

Nowhere is this ever so important than in sales, as this is where we spend much of our waking hours. A heartfelt sales professional thrives on being a part of a purpose. What lights...

Sales Professionals Authentically Prospect To Fuel Consistent Sales Results.

Authenticity, it is one of the biggest challenges for salespeople in a profession riddled with scrupulous, fake and disingenuous sales reps. In a post trust sales world, authenticity separates sales professionals from sales reps. It separates the heartfelt from the empty hearted.

Define each word, think about each word and...
