This time of year I hear from many sales professionals who are not happy about where they ended in 2016. They’re frustrated because they simply weren’t able to hit their sales revenue goals for the year. (Or maybe they simply didn’t have goals in the first place.)
If this describes you, in real life terms that meant not being able to accomplish what you want to accomplish in your business or your career. It also meant not living the lifestyle you want to live.
If the above does describe you – there is a solution:
- Step #1: Take a clear look at 2016 and identify the obstacles that kept you from getting to where you wanted to be
- Step #2: Determine if those same obstacles remain for 2017
- Step #3: Determine if any other ugly new obstacles have reared their heads for 2017
Once you have done that, you are halfway to finding a solution. Step #4, of course, is one by one, step-by-step to remove those obstacles. This is where most people get stuck.
I would like to help you achieve your sales revenue goals this year. Let’s figure out what went wrong in 2016 so that it does not happen again in 2017. To do that, however, I need you to do something first: Take 10 minutes right now to reflect on your 2016 sales.
Then answer my question:
What is your #1 biggest obstacle to achieving your sales goals in 2017?
What is the one thing you believe stands between you and the money you want to be making?
Then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and send me your answer.
Once I hear from you, I will be able to offer recommendations in future issues of this newsletter on how to remove those obstacles and achieve your goals – once and for all.
