The Best Selling Tip Ever


Share on LinkedIn

This sign has been on the bookshelf of every office I’ve ever had. In those years before I earned a private office, it sat next to my telephone. (A few of you out there will recognize its heritage…)

My first sales manager gave it to me along with a grunt and a bit of his classically pithy advice, “Read this regularly.” Ah, the eloquence of the man! It took a while for me to fully realize just how profound that snippet of wisdom actually was and is.


It’s simple. It’s powerful. Think before you make that call. Think as you make that call. Think after you make that call. Think before you write that blog post. Think as you write that blog post. Think after you write that blog post. Think before, during and after everything you do.
