It is your job to build an enthusiastic and energetic environment that breeds an attitude of endurance, persistence and winning.

Whether you are a candidate for a sales position, or an employer looking to fill a sales role, you will likely become a party to a noncompetition agreement, or a “non-compete,”- particularly since such employment typically furnishes access to the employer’s intellectual property or trade secrets. In basic terms, a non-compete is a written agreement whereby the employee acknowledges the employer’s intellectual property/trade secrets, and the employee agrees, in return for receiving compensation and other benefits of employment, to refrain from working for the employer’s competitors over a defined period of time, and in a defined geographic region, if the employment relationship ends for any reason.

Remember that company that you cold called last quarter and they laughed at you when you tried to qualify them? Call them back. Remember that prospect that you had in your pipeline for 6 months and brought the deal to final stages only to find out that their budget got yanked? Call them back. Remember that guy who you offered a blockbuster discount to get a deal before year’s end and he backed out because he was preparing for the worst in 2009? Call him back.

According to a report made by Reuters this morning, consumer confidence made the largest jump in 8 months and the labor market has showed signs of easing. As business professionals, we all seem to be sharing stories that we’re seeing the clouds of the recession starting to break and we’re seeing a little bit of sun. It’s been a long eight months and most of us are bruised, battered and looking for a break. Although the recent weeks have shown signs of ease, we must not forget to keep our heads in the fight.
