Ahhh summertime, the beach, the BBQs, the fireworks, the lake, the s’mores, and the list goes on. All of these great things that happen during these short summer months that help to reflect on life outside of the office and spend time with friends and family. We take this time as business slows down, we charge our batteries up…and before we know it, it September is here and there is only 30 days left in Q3. What the heck?!

Being in sales is no easy task. Our days do not normally consist of the normal 9am-5pm clock-in and clock-out. We are constantly working to sign on new business, add value to our consumers and ultimately drive revenue. With that being said, sales is unique in nature and is not for everyone.

As salespeople, we have to deal with a certain amount of uncertainty in our jobs. No matter how close a deal is to closing, in the back of our minds, we know that it’s never too late for a deal to completely fall through at the last second.
