How good are you compared to your competition?
How often do you win when you go up against them? The competition isn’t just the enemy they are an indicator.
How good does the market think you are?
What is their impression of you as a person? Do they even know you exist? What impact have you had on the market? What’s the big picture of you in the market? For you to be able to sell people must know who you are.
How good do your customers think you are?
This is your ‘brand’, your reputation, your success, your next sale and your referral.
Insight: Figure out why you haven’t reached 10
Hindsight: Self-discovery will reveal why, but you must be honest with yourself
Foresight: Once you know the last 2 grab your bootstraps and make a plan to get ahead. Your personal brand is the most important thing you have. Sales people have a million reasons for bad sales but if you ‘brand’ yourself properly you will have no excuses.
