"I will finish 2007 as my best year ever! I will be at 134% of quota. I grew my business by 16%, have been sales rep of the month 5 times and will be sales rep of the year for my region.

The SalesRoundup has been a great part of my success"


I've been listening to SalesRoundup for two years now, ever since I graduated from college and decided to work in biotech sales.

The advice you give each week has been priceless and has contributed to my success since Day 1, from interviewing for a sales job all the way to today.

Thank you both!

Cheers, Julio

I appreciate everything you guys do. My company does not provide a large amount of official sales training and your podcast keeps me on my toes.

Thanks! Brian

I have a great time listening to you guys and have learned a lot from you.

I started up a company and didn't have much experience in sales, but with your help, I'm making some major headway in my industry!


I love listening to the podcast during my 11 hour trips between Wisconsin and Arkansas that I drive every weekend.

I am learning to sell by catching up on the last two years of Sales Roundup!

Thanks for all you do


I have been a listener of well over a year now. The show is great.

I was listening to some old shows and I think the podcast has evolved very nicely. You have stayed true to your own nature…yet keep elevating the show content.

I have been recommending you to everyone I know. Thanks for the all great programming and all the very useful information.

Maintaining A Positive Attitude!

In sales there are many things we can control. The economy is not one of them! Even the Federal Reserve Chairman is having a difficult time with the economy. We do however have total control over the one thing that will separate the top sales performers from the nonperformers and that is our attitude.

Attitude drives behavior and if you maintain a positive attitude you will outperform over 80% of your peers. Optimistic sales people will perform better than their negative peers by nearly 40%. You have control over your mind.

Selling in a Down Economy
Understanding Your Customer!

There are a few basic behaviors that top salespeople should follow in tough economic times to sustain their performance. First, make your customer's goals your personal objectives. Demonstrate how your product or service will advance their ambitions. Only propose solutions that solve their business problems! Second, justify all proposals with payback beginning in the current fiscal year. In tough economic times every customer will be looking to save money. And third, reduce their risk! This is especially acute in a down economy. No one wants to take on additional risk when times are tough.
