Don't Be Afraid Of Change

I’ve always been a big proponent of self-assessment and of constantly evaluating and reevaluating things to ensure that I’m being and doing my very best in everything I set my mind to.



There is no distinction between my professional and personal life as I truly believe this philosophy should apply to both.



In today’s world, this approach should be absolutely critical if you seek long-term success (not to mention your very professional existence as a Peak Performer in your… Continue

Food For Your Soul

In work and life it’s easy to allow yourself to become overwhelmed, which can lead to burnout if left unchecked.



Obviously, there are many Sole Proprietors out there in this world who are even more susceptible to this very scenario simply by the nature of who they are and what they have to do on a daily basis.



You may be a Sole Proprietor, but are you a Soul Proprietor?



Well, Marty Marsh (”The Soul Proprietor”) of… Continue

Notable Quotable

Here’s a good quote I recently stumbled upon from Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc.:

“Recession proof your job by making sure that others, above and below, know about your recent achievements.”

Good advice from the best-of-the-best.

Viva La Revolucion!

In his recent article Let’s Revolutionize the Standard Recruiting Model Mark Bielecki aptly sums up the frustrations that many of us Contingency Recruiters experience on a regular basis in his very first sentence:



“THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS.”



While it’s true that we have the power to select the types of companies we do business with that’s no guarantee that they… Continue

Gut Feelings

Every now and then we’ll have a client who will talk to us about their “gut feelings” following an interview with one of our candidates.



Quite frankly, that’s one of the more common challenges we run into as a Recruiting Firm especially when dealing with new business partners.



Consequently, it’s one of the most common hiring mistakes made by employers and I’d say it’s even more pronounced when it comes to hiring Sales Professionals.



Has this happened to… Continue

How To Keep Going During A Slump

Everyone depends on you. Your sales efforts impact everyone. Without them, everything stops.



That’s how important you are to your company and the people in it.



Each sales week and month, you and your team will almost certainly be presented with sales challenges and periods of time that test your resolve to make the next call and, in some extreme cases, even question your career choice.



Perhaps this happens more for those of us in Recruiting and Sales because our… Continue

Notable Quotable

This one comes to us today from Jeb’s Blog by Sales Gravy



“Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to excellence.”



Sadly, many people are jealous of (some even hate) anyone who wants to be or achieve more and they will do almost anything to bring everyone down to their level.



Because of their own mediocrity and failure these people discourage success.



This is why it’s absolutely… Continue

What Got You Here Won't Get You There: CHAPTER 3

This chapter titled The Success Delusion, or Why We Resist Change concludes Section One of this book.



One thing that really struck me from this chapter was the powerful statement the author makes about how all of us in the workplace delude ourselves about our achievements, our status, and our contributions.



* We overestimate our contribution to a project



* We take credit - - partial or complete - - for successes that truly belong to others



* We…
