One of the Greatest Salesman of our time, Jim Rohn.
Jim's much loved Mentor, Earl Shoaff. They met when Jim was 25 and Earl was 42. In this short video he utters the most profound of words... "Make large plans for they do have magic to stir man's blood".
Jim's legendary tips from his "Simple Sales Course 101":
1. Talk to lots of people every day! Success is a NUMBERS game.
2. Be real nice when the weather isn't... when people aren't... ATTITUDE, PERSONALITY.
3. Give good service, write all the notes, call them before they call you. Service leads to multiple sales. If you take good care of somebody they'll open doors you could never open yourself, they'll take you by the hand and share you with people you never thought you could reach. Service leads to multiples.
