Always sell with Purpose & Passion
The dictionary defines Purpose as:
1.the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.

What is your purpose for sales?
Is it just a way to earn a living? Do you truly believe in what you sell?
Or is something bigger, is it your contribution to others?
There is a lot of talk about not being” Salsey” while I agree there is nothing worse than a sleazy salesperson. What about the profession of sales. I personally am very proud I chose sales as my career. I am not ashamed for wearing the title of being a “Salesperson” if I had to do it all over again, I would. I am honored to have natural sales abilities and I am excited to share my energy and passion with the world.
When I am coaching I talk a lot about selling with purpose and passion.
When I am working with a client I feel excitement and a fire ignite inside me.
Sales is a great way to contribute to my family but it lights me up with energy.
One of the key attributes of a top sales performer is that they always demonstrate a passion for the sales profession. While you need to understand the core sales process and the fundamentals of sales, your attitude towards your work will ultimately decide your success. You must truly believe in what you are selling and be dedicated to helping your customer solve a problem. Authenticity, enthusiasm and strong work ethic are all key ingredients to becoming a top sales performer.
