Must Read Articles

Thanks to Sylvia Coulter for some wise words about selling - specifically, what to do when you get a 'no'. I'd like to expand on Ms. Coulter's comments with this: the hardest part about selling (aka business development) is ego - and ego is everywhere especially when you are selling your services. . Ego amplifies fear and uncertainty which is why we tend to overestimate potential and react badly when we get a 'no'.

Imagine the difference if you can get your ego out of the equation. A 'no' might become an opportunity to learn something about your competitors, or a chance to continue negotiating. In fact, if you back up to the beginning of the process, you may discover that your ego is motivating you to pursue business because of prestige or renown (we call this a 'make the firm' account), rather than good fit between your services and the prospect's problems.
