  • Not everything can be taught to your people
  • Based on science and statistics we know how to hire good people, but you have to use the right tools
  • Salespeople need to be money-motivated
  • Hiring managers have been burned in the past and/or they just don't know so John has his prospects give him their top and bottom people and John identifies them by their results
  • Bad hires can cost up to $114,000 + lost opportunities
  • But if you go too slow and say you are "selective" you learn that time kills deals
  • John offers a one year unconditional replacement guarantee and lower fees
  • The 80/20 rule is alive and well in sales performance
