I wrote a blog article earlier in the week on improving sales training with zero budget. I talked about how important it was to love your own product to win business. I mean really LOVE it, know it inside out, be a customer of your own product.
In the past, I’ve shown this clip to my sales team from Jerry Macquire. Rod Tidwell can’t get the contract he wants because he’s showing too many signs he’s in it for the money and not in it for the love of the game. Are you in it for the love of the game? Do you love selling? Do you love what you sell? Love can’t be faked, if you’re not, maybe its time to rethink the game you’re playing. And if that’s just a bit too deep for a Friday, then just watch the clip and enjoy it, it never fails to make me smile.
