As an entrepreneur I can tell you first hand that an entrepreneur starts off working for free. You are not getting paid, and no one cares about what you are doing except for you. Your belief will bring you success and failure is always right around the corner. The harsh reality is that as an entrepreneur you will need to fight to win and succeed. When you decide to work for free, there is no going back... you have rent to pay, employees to hire, websites to build and products to develop.

Millennials, often referred to as Generation Y or Generation Next, are entering the job market at full force. Traditional values deemed important such as, job stability, salary and a record of success are still relevant to this generation. However, more than previous generations they have a sense of self entitlement, competitiveness, and a desire to find the next "big thing."

Unemployment remains stubbornly high, yet sales Hiring Managers are really struggling to find top sales people. The reality is that the actual sales-specific unemployment rate is lower than the 8.5% level recently reported. One real sign of this is that sales Hiring Managers are experiencing a sudden spike in the number of candidates who receive and then reject their job offers.

"Ignore the noise" These words are plastered on the locker room walls of the most successful NFL football teams in the game. This phrase is at the top of a list of best practices that have been proven to help the team to be the best at what they do. For the players inside that locker room, it helps them be the best NFL football players, but this practice can be applied to you and if you can effectively execute 'ignoring the noise' on a daily basis, it will help you to be the best at what you do.

As you sit in your workplace today take a look around you. Take a look at the leader board then take a look at your coworkers and the way that they operate. There is a direct correlation between the numbers on the board and the work ethic/mentality of each individual sales consultant. The consultant with the highest sales volume didn't get there because he or she was born with the innate ability to sell; it wasn't because he or she was always in the right place at the right time or even dumb luck for that matter. It was because they wanted it more, plain and simple.

A few years ago, I recruited an executive to run a mid-level company. The night before he was supposed to start his new job, the executive called to say he was staying put. The board of directors at his current company--a major multinational retailer--had offered to name him CEO in one year's time. I was aghast, but my former candidate could hardly envision a better scenario. He had leveraged an offer to run a mid-sized company and used it to land the coveted top spot at a retailing giant. No greater career coup exists, right?
