"Be The CEO of Your Own Territory" By Farah Patel
There are three types of sales people:
1. The Lazy Salesperson
2. The Employee Salesperson and,
3. The CEO Salesperson
Good, Great, and Exceptional: Imagine you are looking at a yardstick where the Lazy Salesperson is equal to a value of Good and the Employee Salesperson equals Great, while the CEO Salesperson is Exceptional. The distance between Good and Great is one foot apart; the distance between Great and Exceptional is miles apart. It’s a chasm that some sales people can get to the brink of, but not to the other side. When you find someone who has made it across, grab them before anyone else can – pay them well, stay hands off, let them be the CEO of their own territory and watch your revenue skyrocket.
