#351 Book dive "Molly's Game"
How do you go from an Olympic-class skier to a 26 yr old running one of the most exclusive underground poker games in the world? World famous actors, producers, directors, politicians, athletes-the people you see on TV were playing in Molly's Game. It's a story of risk & mighty rise, but it's also a story of losing it all and having to fight to rise again. It took Molly Bloom losing her living to gain her life back.* The book is broken into 2 episodes. Today's episode is a parable that we're all poker players and you have a stronger hand than you think.* Thank you to Molly's team for sending me a copy of the book.

#349 "Just another cold, dark night on the side of Everest"
I couldn't leave Dr. Kelly McGonigal's book, The Upside of Stress...Why stress if good for you and how you can get good at it, without sharing a relatable story with you. A grad student was frantically working alone late one night on her research paper when a knock came at the door. It was the IT guy-seeing her sitting in a heap of stress he peaked his head inside and said, "Just another cold, dark night on the side of Everest..."  *Nobody sets out to climb a mountain thinking it'll be easy and not cold. No one runs a marathon thinking that it'll be pain free. No one enters the arena not realizing they may fail. *You may find yourself on your mountain today. Maybe you chose the mountain...or maybe Everest chose you. But in either case this is your climb and you'll often have to go at it alone. Yes it's scary...I know you wish someone would help...no it's not fair...but this is your climb and it'll often be cold, dark, and lonely. But keep climbing!  *Thanks for catching the show.

#348 "Ful" or "Free"
If I asked you if you wanted a "Stress-free" Life you'd probably choke on your drink because you couldn't say, "Hell yeaaaa," fast enough. But not so fast says Kelly McGonigal in her book, "The Upside of Stress...Why stress if good for you and how to get good at it." Think about your many experiences in life...purpose, meaning, learning, joy, happiness, love, etc...When you think back to those times, were any of those experiences laced with stressful moments?* Today's episode puts a new lens on not only how you look at stress, but also on your relationship with stress. Stress is needed in your life and will actually be beneficial to you...but first you must change how you see and relate to it.* Check out Dr,. McGonigal's book "The Upside of Stress." You can find it at your favorite book store, public library (request it & they'll even buy it for you), or just stand in the aisle at your favorite book store for 30min/day and read it for free :) *Thanks for catching the show. Please share with 1 person who could use this episode.****Annnnnd to help spread the show's message I need your help. Would you leave me a quick rating?

#347 On being Productively Lazy
The other morning I’d given myself 1 hour..30 min to read, then 30 min to go knock out a run before work...but when my 30 minutes of reading was up, I didn’t want to get up and go run. I justified continuing to read by saying to myself that I only had 30 min before having to get ready for work, so I might as well keep on reading. I’d negotiated with myself thst I’d workout when I got home. (& I hate working out after work) It was all reasoned well, right? Reading is beneficial, but it was not the most impactful use of my time at that moment. I was being productive but lazy.⭐️ Today’s episode challenges you to find areas where you’re productively lazy⭐️ Find the leaks by asking 3 key questions.⭐️Is what I’m doing THE MOST impactful? ⭐️Can it be fragmented?⭐️Will I even do it?⭐️Asking these questions will free up mental energy that you needlessly use when negotiating with yourself. ⭐️Thanks for catching today’s show.⭐️To help spread the show’s message please leave a quick rating & share with someone who could use today’s episode. ⭐️I’m @marshbuice on Twitter & thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#336 Fake it till you make it is bs
Although I’ve used the term “Fake it till you make it,” I never liked the “fake it” part bc that means you don’t fully believe in what you’re saying or portraying. I don’t want to fake anything but I am willing to embody it. ⭐️Today’s episode rips a page from James Clear’s new book “Atomic Habits” & in the book he writes an effective way to build a new habit is to embody it.⭐️Thanks for catching the show.

#335 That ain’t keeping it real
A common term in many cultures is “keeping it real,” which basically means to not forget where you came from. When you go back home to your old stomping grounds the notion is to pick up right where you left off - hanging with the same people doing the same dumb sh*t....and your life can all change in an instant simply because you were trying to “keep it real.” ⭐️A special thanks to Charlamagne Tha God’s team for sending me a copy of the book “Shook One” buy it on Amazon or your favorite book retailer⭐️Thanks for subscribing & listening to the show.

I’m sensitive to when Life whispers to me & as I was going back through a book I read called “Fearvana” a question stood out to me that I didn’t even highlight...”What have your beliefs cost you?” Waking the next morning I found another blurb from another article about “beliefs,” so it made me ask the question, “What’s the difference between price & cost...& what does it mean as it relates to my beliefs?” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Thank you for listening to the show.

#330 Don’t assume the sale
Consultants will tell you to just run in there and act like you own the place...be bold, brash, and take hold of the situation...& when you do, your customers will kneel down and beg you to buy. All you need to do is assume the sell and you can bag the deal....well that may be fine & good if the last 8 customers bought from you. Today’s episode deals with the times you’re not on a winning streak bc it’s hard to assume the sale when all you’ve done recently is lost. 👉👉Thank you for checking out today’s show.

#327 Stay relevant...let others worry about remembering
At 80 years young, Coach George Raveling says that every day he has a choice to make: contribute or be another statistic. Coach chooses to contribute by staying relevant. Today so many people you once watched, followed, or know personally fight so hard to be remembered by waiving their social flag...they're so worried about being forgotten that the only things they talk about are past accomplishments. They desperately want to be remembered when your only focus for today should be, "How can I contribute and stay relevant?"

#327 Selling’s not a team sport
In Carol Dweck's book, "Mindset," tennis legend John McEnroe said that he used to throw temper tantrums during a match because his mind was so fixed...so rigid, that he didn't know how to regain his footing once he began to lose...so he did the only thing he knew to do...yell, scream, and smash rackets. By his own admission, he wished he would've instead played a team sport in order to mask his deficiencies and weaknesses. Sales, like Life is not a team sport. Sure, you do need others, but the push-offs, recoveries, and ultimate results are yours and yours alone.

#322 Become familiar with being unfamiliar
In the 20 yrs of playing in the NBA, Kobe Bryant said the most tired he'd ever been in a game was in his final one...but he had felt that kind of fatigue before while training out on the track and because he was familiar with the feeling before, he was able to push through and cap his career off by scoring 61 points. Today's episode is a challenge to push through when the pain seems unbearable...when you don't feel like you can take one more step, make one more call, or catch one more customer....when it feels unfamiliar..when your mind is telling you to quit and turn back to familiarity...stay with the unfamiliar.

When I'm lost out of town and am trying to get home, I'll (eventually) stop at the gas station and ask the cashier how to get back on the highway. I know once I can get on the highway, I can find my way home. What's crazy is, when I'm given directions, I was only a few turns away from getting back on my chosen road. The same is true for your Life...you're only a few turns from breaking through.

#296 The Aftermath
We've experienced some of the most incredible moments in our lives...and we've had to endure some of the most painful circumstances too. We all want to erase the painful moments- to not have to live in the aftermath, but to wipe out the pain, you must also erase the joys before the pain. Would it really be worth it? **Taken from one of my favorite author's book, "Overcoming Life's Difficulties," by Harold Kushner.

#280 You lack variance
No, no, no, no, no, no, no...that should be enough to turn you around from most of your "tries," but what about the ones you desperately needed...when the doors were repeatedly slammed....you found a way anyway. What if you took that same fight to other areas of your life?

#279 Building your sales confidence through lack of trust
In sales our confidence is getting tested every day-as the No's mount up...our confidence plummets down. Your confidence bottoms out and we keep sinking lower and lower. How do we lose confidence? How do we get it back? You recapture and keep your confidence by moving your trust...

#270 You have sight, but what about vision?
Tell me what you see right now? What you see is determinant on your vision and if your vision is heavy with doubt, uncertainty, stress, and fear...that's what you'll see... and seeing = results. Sight is what is...Vision is what's to be. One is based in a temporal reality...the other is fixated on faith. Set your vision and your sight will be just right.

#267 "I can't see the audience"
New performers often comment that when they first get up on stage they can't see the audience. With knees shaking & voice trembling, they feel as though they're going to forget everything they rehearsed so they focus only on their routine. Survive or bomb, great performers know that if they're ever going to get better, they must go back up on stage...to be one of the best, you have to be able to see the audience.

#263 How to develop persistence
To be successful in Sales you know that you must be persistent, but often we either go too far or not far enough.

How can you persist yet not seem pushy? Well I’m glad you asked!

#228 Remember Tomorrow
Jesse Itzler is the kind of guy that does what he sees. He’s been a rapper, wrote songs for the NBA, co-founded Marquis Jets w no planes or experience, climbed mountains (also w no experience), & ran 100 mile races. Basically he lives life fully, but things do get tough...he does want to quit and when he feels like giving up, “Remember Tomorrow” keeps him going. 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show, please share w one person who could use today’s episode.

You’ve said it...I’ve said it...we’ve all said the phrase, “Easier said than done,” when we feel like the task looks simple to do, but it’s not.

#225 Make “Be” your side hustle
We were all asked the same question... hell we probably had to do a report in 2nd grade, “What do you want to Be when you grow up?” We said we wanted to be an athlete, teacher, doctor, lawyer, car salesman (😳)...what’s crazy is no one corrected us. Those titles are what we wanted to “Do” not “Be,” so we do...do...do that’s all it seems to amount to week in & out is a mountain of Do, but what about your Be? It’s in there, your Be is that pull & when Do & Be align, watch out!. 👉👉Thanks so much for listening to today’s show please share with 1 person that you haven’t shared the show w yet.

Wes Moore....they both had the same name; they grew up only blocks apart from one another, yet one became a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, & even served in the White House...while the other is serving a life sentence for murder. Successful Wes said his life could’ve easily been the other Wes’ life...so what was the difference if they both grew up in the same environment?

#223 You’re the wabi sabi
The Japanese word wabi sabi means that although an object’s shape is not perfectly round & the finish is weathered and distinguished- even thought its imperfect, there’s beauty in the imperfection. The reality of wabi sabi is that nothing lasts; nothing’s finished; & nothing’s perfect. Hmm 🤔 I wonder who fits that reality? 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show.

As a young man, Josh Altman’s kicking coach told him that no matter the score...no matter what’s on the line, kick the ball the same. You can’t control the crowd & all of the externals that surround it, but you can control your focus & effort. It’s a lesson he’s taken with him to become a million dollar realtor & tv personality ...no matter the circumstances or client, he always “kicks the ball the same.” 👉👉Thank you for rating the show; if you haven’t yet, would you leave a rating (& review) & more importantly please share with just 1 person who could use today’s episode.

We’re taught early on in sales to not “take it personal...” when a customer burns off on you, gets upset and loses it on you, or when the boss embarrasses you in front of others...don’t even take it personal when your kids want nothing to do with you...”they’ll come around.” But HTH are you supposed to take something when it personally/professionally hurts? 👉👉Thanks for supporting the show.

#218 Coach the Smalls
We read that doing (or not doing) certain things can be detrimental to our health yet we don’t stop (nor start) bc that detriment is “someday.” We think that we’ll have time to make the correction , but today, we’ll just keep on keeping on. No matter what’s said or shown, we won’t change until we’re ready to change. It’s the same thing for employees/children/others, you see their vast potential of what they could be or do yet they don’t and it frustrates the hell out of you. Here’s how you can coach these mindsets. 👉👉I appreciate you supporting the show. Would you leave a rating to help get the show out to others and share with JUST ONE other person? 🙏 You rock!

#210 Tell your story
When he speaks audiences, Nick Nanton has an exercise that he has everyone in the room write down their firsts...first car, home, love, kiss,etc...then he has each person compare their firsts w the other person’s firsts sitting right beside them and if the firsts are identical, he’ll pay them $10,000. It never happens bc no two lists...no two firsts...no two people have identical stories. What you do may seem commoditized, but how you do it ain’t...bc you have a story to tell. Now go tell it.👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show!

#209 You know you can’t or don’t think you can?
To know you can’t do something is to have first hand experience that you cannot do it...right now. But to know you can’t is not necessarily permanent, it just means that you lack the necessary skills to hit the mark immediately..to know causes you to raise your game up..to increase your intensity..to sharpen your focus to go at it again. But that’s to “know”...how many times have we backed down in Life simply bc we didn’t think we can? We never knew firsthand...we never failed to gauge where we must get better...we never asked bc we thought the answer to be No...today we’re going to know from this point forward. 👉👉Thanks so much for checking out the show.

We’re quick to use THE one...someone’s blueprint that they used to lose weight, sell or save more, invest wiser, or just got stanky rich...we use what worked best for them, but it may not be best for you. Often when their blueprint doesn’t work for us, we give up, discouraged. Success in any field isn’t a one size fits all & blueprints are configured to exacting standards and measurements AFTER all of the kinks and reworks have been smoothed out. You’ll get your blueprint, but first you need a plan. 👉👉Thanks for catching the show. Please rate, review, subscribe & share to help spread the message. 💯

#206 Just 5 more minutes...
Seth Godin said, “People don’t believe what you tell them, they barely believe what you show them, they often believe what their friends tell them, they always believe what they tell themselves. What leaders do is they give people stories they can tell themselves...stories about the future & about change.” We’ve got to be better storytellers bc we can tell others what to do..show them how to do it, but all of that is short lived unless they tell it first to themselves. What we have to do as a leader is change the narrative they tell themselves...sometimes when they’re just about to quit it’s saying “just 5 more minutes...”

I never thought of her to be in sales but she told me she’s #5 in the state at selling Life Insurance & when I asked her how she did it she said of course that she “cared,” but then went on to tell me about a time when she had first started & a police officer came in to review his policies...2 week’s later he was shot and killed, leaving behind a wife & young son ...& she didn’t ask him about Life Insurance bc she was too scared to ask...This is an important show...how many times do we tell ourselves no instead of asking others...yes they may say no...but what if they said yes? 👉👉Thanks for checking out the show.

To complete 50 Iron Men in 50 states in 50 days, James Lawrence had to develop an alter ego. That’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, & then run a marathon, 26.22 miles..& that’s one race! Do that same race every day for 50 straight days in all 50 states. The Iron Cowboy had to take over, kick in to see Lawrence through bc not even halfway in, his mind and body wanted to quit. We all have an alter ego- that other side of us that when your body & mind wants you to run & hide that 6th gear kicks in...you have it...we all do..& you need to release it.

#196 How I exist in your reality
Probably one of the most referenced to people on my podcast is Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell who wrote the book that later became a movie “Lone Survivor.” He said “People live in a reality that is unique to them. They build it themselves to make it perfect. The people that exist in other people’s realities are the ones who succeed..” We all think that our way is the right way..the right way to manage, parent, save, lose weight...we have the right way to pray, deal with others, and even know the right way to run the country..we live in our own reality- I have mine, but you have your reality too & we both think that we’re right. The key to success is how do you stay adaptable & fluid in Life to see how other people see..to suspend judgement and hold on to the notion that there’s more that you don’t know than do know.👉👉Thanks so much for tuning in..you can catch a video clip of the show on YouTube just search Marsh Buice & it should pop up.

#195 Pain ..& the process
When my dad had total knee replacement he said the most painful part was when they showed up the next day to begin therapy...they pushed, bent, flexed, & stretched so much that he thought his knee was going to rip back open. Although the pain was excruciating, the therapists said they had to put the pain through a process or it would forever affect his walk....you may have not had surgery but you sure as hell know pain & although we don’t want to feel even more pain, we must put pain through its process otherwise it’ll affect our walk. 👉👉Thanks sooooo much for taking a few minutes out to catch today’s show.

#190 Most graduate 🎓...few educate
Ahhhh the season is upon us. The envelopes are showing up in your mailbox & on your office keyboard...it’s graduation time & the ones you watched grow or barely even know want you to put a lil something in an envelope for them. Graduates have met a standard set by a board...but education has a committee of 1 & her name is Life. Education starts within...Today’s episode is focused on education...& it’s not about schools, scholarships, nor scores...it’s about & on you..always has...always will be. 👉👉A side note, I don’t give graduates money I prefer to sow seeds of knowledge. 2 books I give are “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George Classon (about wealth building) & “As A Man Thinketh” by James Allen..both books are very short reads and can set the right mind frame for them. 💯💯Thanks for listening.

#180 “I just want to die...”
Pretty shocking title I know, but we’ve either heard someone say these words...and/or we’ve even thought them when it came to our own lives...when things seem too much, too unbearable ...when the world seems to close in and make us claustrophobic- confining us to a world of darkness we want to hit the stop button in Life. A friend said these words to me recently..it hurt to hear them...but I can relate...I’ve felt this way too. Today’s episode albeit it taboo- I felt needed to have some light shed on it. Some would say “I’d never,” while others secretly admit..but either way I say don’t be so quick. This isn’t a morbid episode...it’s a celebration....of Life...your Life. 👉👉Thank you for listening ✌️

#163 “I’m not the worst of what I’ve done”
Recently I came across a new series on Netflix called “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” hosted by David Letterman....& it features high profile guest- (hence the title)- now the audience had no clue who they’re about to see & the first one I watched was Jay Z and the last 10 min of the show was epic for me. Towards the end Letterman asks Jay about his infidelity & Jay said, “(my wife) she knew I’m not the worst of what I’ve done...” Today’s episode was not what was planned, but I felt the need to share...someone’s worst is not their best...it’s not all that they are...it’s not all that they’ve got...there’s good in there & the way to break the cycle is for you to pay it forward. 👉👉I appreciate you 👉👉thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#162 The Minimalist Leader
You see The Minimalist Movement all around- from tiny houses to living out of just one back...doing more-being free with less & while that may all fine & good in living it’s not F&G as a Leader. When Dr Jill Bolte Taylor was recovering from her stroke, one of her specific needs was “Ask me a specific question & give me the space needed to search for the specific answer...” Today’s episode is a hand raiser for me- I’ve been too quick to ask a question and just as quick to answer it for others....I didn’t give them the space needed to fill in the blanks. I get as leaders we’re minimal on time- so much coming at us on a daily basis...but when it comes to teaching & involving others in their own lives...we gotta be Maxamilists (yup I created a word) —give others more time to search for their answers. 👉👉Thanks for taking time out to listen.

#157 I’m not a bargain
In speaking to a wealthy investor, he told me something that really resonated w me. He said, “Marsh, everybody’s looking for a bargain, but what I’m searching for is the best value.” This statement landed w me bc I’m not a bargain...but I am the best value. See a bargain is something that bears risk, but is below cost...below market value..so the question for the buyer is it worth the risk? But a value on the otherhand...a value is what something is worth in relation to the resources (i.e. time & money) invested. Today’s episode is a reminder that you’re not a bargain, but you are the best value. 👉👉Thanks for listening. To improve rankings so others can see the show would you rate it for me please?

In his book “Da Vinci” Walter Isaacson writes that maybe the reason why Leonardo Da Vinci died with many of his works unfinished was bc he was always improving on his techniques...& I’ll go with that thought, but I have conflicting feelings on this thought as well. In today’s episode, yes I agree that maybe we should look at our lives as unfinished- ever improving works of art...but maybe Da Vinci wouldn’t mark his paintings as completed ...maybe we stay at a job, entangled in a toxic relationship...or don’t start a new position or business for fear of being judged...so we hide in the safety of “still working on my painting.” 👉👉Thanks for tuning in...for feedback or suggestions please email me @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#144 The 9 Basic Human Needs
While working a deal I needed a salesperson to go get some more paperwork from his customer & after outlining what I need he just stared at me and asked if I was going to go do it? The old me-when I was a new mgr would’ve blown up thinking that the sp was being soft...but that wasn’t the case...in reading “The Coaching Habit” by Michael Bungay Stainer he wrote of the 9 Basic Human Needs: Affection, Creation, Recreation, Freedom, Identity, Understanding, Participation, Protection, & Subsistence (my success depends on your help). ...these are the 9 we all need as humans (hopefully you’re a human). So Stainer writes when someone wants (asks) something from you - don’t jump in nor go off...they’re asking you bc they have a want behind their need(s). Too often as leaders we’re too quick to assume, advise, or blow up, but if you tap into their want, you can align with “what” (they need) and coach more effectively. 👉👉Try spotting the needs behind the want questions of others this week & share

#127 Caked Up
In 1957 a monastery in Thailand was relocating and a group of monks had to move a giant clay statue of Buddha. As they began to move it, they noticed a crack & decided to leave it for a day. One of the monks returned later & shined his flashlight over the statue and onto the crack & noticed something that we all possess. 👉👉Thanks for tuning in & sharing. I’m @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com ✌️

#126 It’s right there
Last night I asked my daughter if she had homework..she had 2 pages left- the first one she banged out, but the second?!!....man she hemmed & hawed not wanting to read the short story & answer the questions on the back. ...it’s funny how Life will teach us something from a innocent 5th grade homework assignment 👉👉👉Thanks for listening..I appreciate the support and feedback.

#124 Make Believe
Seeing a little boy in his driveway, knees bent looking up into the thick, fluffy clouds really got to me. I realized as a “grown up” I stopped looking up & imagining everything that is available to me...so many possibilities...I created my own fences & stopped making my beliefs. Today’s episode is a reminder to me (& you) that although Life can take crazy turns, it’s never too late to make your beliefs unlimited again. 👉👉Go handle up👉👉I’ll see you on the Blacktop!

#124 Fearcasting
The 7 day forecast is calling for rain...and even though it may rain everyday, I still have to go to work, take the kids to school, go to the store, & workout...in other words Life still has to go on- I just have to adjust and keep it moving. It’s crazy how we see the storms coming in the commonalities of Life, but when we see the dark skies of something potentially more serious we freeze up..Fearcasting instead of forecasting- we accept and do nothing productivly instead of seeing what’s looming and preparing for the possibilities. There’s always options..Be your own weatherman- fears often carry a heavier impact than the storms themselves. Listen in and share your thoughts @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#122 The opp to struggle
A friend of mine told me the other day that he’d bought a boat for a fraction of the price bc it had a cracked frame. He re-welded, replaced the rivets & now it’s as good as new...his young son gets out there w him too & occasionally builds things on his own. When I asked him how he’s taught his son how to do these things he said that he tells his son, “When you’re struggling, make progress first then come ask for help if you haven’t figured it out.” Right then & there I realized that I’ve been too quick to help my children, friends, & co-workers...Today’s eppy is about giving others (& others giving you) the opportunity to struggle.

#121 To hell w/ reruns
Now I like The Jeffersons, Good Times, & Martin- I’m not talking about those reruns..I’m talking about the reruns of negative emotions that have become unconsciously layered..entrenched within...reruns that have sabotaged your success & caused you to always pick Mr/Mrs Wrong. Why do you keep picking crazy...why are you barely getting by even though you make more...why you can’t make a come up in Life? Reruns dude...listen in👉👉Share your thoughts w me @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com👉👉Thanks for listening—& ‘preciate the share and rating ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#120 You ain’t weak, you big
Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard Brain Scientist who suffered a stroke causing her to lose her memory, speech, & the ability to think about the future. In many ways it was the worst thing that could’ve happened to her..but it also one of the best things that could’ve happened for her. In her book “Stroke of Insight” Taylor discovered that a chemical is automatically released in our system when powerful emotions such as anger, jealousy, & resentment are triggered- the chemical shoots through & out of our body in less than 90 seconds...in less than 90 seconds the response is over....or is it? Today’s eppy digs into that fascinating fact asking how much of these emotions have you chosen to carry for so long...and didn’t have to? If you want more of her story check her out on Oprah Super Soul Convo Podcast. 👉👉Thanks for listening & sharing👉👉More importantly thanks for being you. 👉👉Much ❤

#119 You got next 🏀
Recently I learned 3 plays from sports psychologist / mental toughness coach Graham Betchart. These plays piggyback well in what we’ve been talking about recently which is looking at mistakes differently, not letting humps become Himalayas (mountains) in your Life, & working with precision not “ish.” I’d urge you to find the holes in your daily performance and go back and listen to those episodes. So Graham starts by giving his professional athletes 3 plays: W.I.N, Play Present, & Next Play Speed. Listen in as we break each one down ...and the good news is you don’t even have to be an athlete nor out of breath to run these. 👉👉I’m at thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#118 Seriously, mad for what?😡
Ever have one of those days when you just put a little extra stank on everything that you’re doing? I had one of those days the other day and when I caught myself I had to ask & laugh, “Seriously, why you mad?” Today’s eppy is about not getting mad..but staying mad. Staying mad ain’t gonna be very productive for ya. 👉👉Thanks for tuning in- if you’d take a minute to rate & leave a quick review of the show (you can do it from your phone at the bottom of the Library section in your podcasts) I’d appreciate it.

#117 This just ain’t about You
In speaking to a new salesperson- I never could get her to work with more customers- she knew her product & had worked in a male dominated industry before, so what was it? When I asked her she said, “I don’t have a high need like these other salespeople- they have rent to pay & I just have to make a lot...” I told her that “This isn’t just about you....” 👉👉No matter what your title is, we’re all in Sales and this eppy is for you. 👉👉Please Share your thoughts and episode w someone who you think can use it. Pay it forward🙌👉👉Remember no matter what comes your way, Life is negotiable & the greatest sale you’ll ever make is to sell you on you. You’re enough 💯👉👉I’m at thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#114 Humps not Himalayas
Humps, roadblocks...detours..they’re all a part of Life but too often we look at the humps in our lives as Himalayas— we look at a kneecap sized problem as a big ass insurmountable mountain in our lives. Today’s episode challenges you in: #1 How you look at your problems #2 How you label your circumstances #3 How you overcome them as well as the benefit of having them in the first place. 👉👉Have a kick ass day 👉👉I’m at thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#113 “ish”
I was talking to a guy the other day and he was telling me how last month ended bad...this month is starting worse...and come to find out, his months have progressively gotten worse in sales. So I asked him a simple question, “What time did you get to work today...yesterday..?” Some of us start our days in the hole...we’re in debt to our day- freaking out, yelling, & weaving through traffic bc we live with an “ish” creed. You’re a pro, act like it. 👉👉Thanks for checking out the podcast. Please subscribe and share with others—I’m @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#110. 5 by 5
I’m not a gratitude journal nor To Do List kind of guy- many find this helpful, but not for me- I found I was inconsistent & non productive doing these things. Today’s eppy is a version that I’ve found helps keep me consistent in 1)My perspective 2)In my growth. I call them my 5 by 5’s. My easy to do missions every day. Listen in to see if you can’t create your own 5x5, 3x3, or 4x4. Remember keep it simple so you can keep it consistent. 👉👉What keeps you regimented or did this podcast give you some ideas?

#109 But what if it will?
We’re hardwired to think negative- it’s engrained in us bc when our ancestors had to hunt for food, they had to think negative bc one bad move could mean death. Today we still think negative-one way we do it is we think, “What if it won’t work?” Today’s eppy asks, what if you were bold enough to ask, “But what if it will...” This simple mind-shift will help you get out of your mental rut. 👉👉Let me know your thoughts @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com
