Chicken Strips, Gravy, & Sales Lessons From The Deep South

    Back-Against-The-Wall Selling In April of 1998 I was living in Mobile, AL to be near my father. After being apart for nearly a decade as I was serving in far away places like Korea, SoCal, and Abu Dhabi in the UAE during my five years of active duty upon graduation from the U.S. Air Force Academy, it was time to get back to family. After a unique turn of events (and a 3-year arbitration case that I eventually, painfully and anticlimactically won) I found myself unemployed in a town where the only people I knew were my father, step-mother, and step-sister just six months after resigning my commission as an Air Force officer.

Why Do Celebrities Do Drugs and Sales People Need Hugs?

When you have a great sales attitude you don't need drugs or hugs. Selling Is The Transference of Confidence Why do those who "have it all," i.e. athletes, movie stars, musicians, and other celebrities do drugs and why do so many salespeople hobble along in their careers barely scraping by despite Forbes and Glassdoor listing "business development" as one of the top 5 most promising jobs of last year.  (I first wrote this on 2/1/10 when a celebrity overdosed and died. I updated it on 2/2/14 when another celebrity overdosed and died. Now I'm updating it on 7/20/17 because Chester Bennington of Linkin Park dies at 41. While this post is on a sales and marketing website, understanding the role confidence, faith, and hope play in all areas of our lives applies to all of us, in anything we do. Please take this message to heart to not only sell better, but to live better.)
