Years ago sales professionals started their careers at companies that required them to pound the pavement and knock on doors. Those that had the fortitude and competitive entrepreneurial attitude worked hard to convince corporations to give them a chance to prove their worth. Many failed and decided that sales was not the right career for them. The few that survived found great success and continued to accelerate their career to climb above the tree line

The way people interact and communicate has changed over the years. We've seen social media take over and people connect in a whole new way. Networking has literally taken on a new meaning. Companies and people have become much more visible. We now have access to CEOs and hiring managers, we search for jobs online, we shop online and we even acquire more "friends" online.

Sales people repeat effective practices and behaviors. Top performing sales people also have the ability to focus on the wide end of the funnel, on building pipeline, regardless of success converting revenue. The best do not succumb to complacency; in fact, they hunker down and become even more vigilant with pipeline building.

Recruitment is a tough business and certainly not for the timid or reserved.

The ball has dropped, the champagne has been drunk, the smoke has cleared and the End of Year Fog has lifted - 2013 is officially under way and we are already half way through January. A lot of us have been through our Kick Off meetings and we are off and running but some of us have not gotten off to the quick start we were hoping for.
