Getting into action is important.

You gotta play hard to get results in sales.

But shoot first, aim later isn’t usually a formula for success in selling.

Today on Abe Lincoln’s Birthday, you’d be wise to take his advice…

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

Abe had the wisdom to know that the preparation of sharpening his axe for four hours, would make chopping down a tree go faster and with much less effort.

Likewise, shouldn’t you be sharpening your axe?

What are you doing to make your sales skills – your axe – better today?

Don’t wait for someone to give you a training program and tell you what to do.

Be a self-starter. Get yourself over to Persuasive Selling Skills and sharpen your skills to close more deals faster with less wasted effort.

Sell with Pride,
