In my sales management days, I often sat across from prospective new hires passionately pitching me to hire them.

I get asked for sales advice. A lot. It’s an occupational hazard.

So you would think I’d have a catchy sales-guru-style slogan ready to go, such as, “Your attitude determines your altitude.”

Sales pros:

If at first you don’t succeed, blame someone.

People are all the same. People are individually unique.

Oh, snap.
