Referral Tip #33 – Chapter 5: The Sales Saboteurs

Negative attitudes towards salespeople are everywhere.

So it is not surprising that the Sales Saboteurs are likely to rear their ugly heads, in whole or in part, when business professionals become responsible for new business development within their own firms.

Or when they put up a shingle with their name, and reputation, on it.

When they become the brand.

Business professionals do not want to be associated with these nasty, negative stereotypes of salespeople. Their fear of being associated with this group grows quickly, even as their dependence on building sales and generating their own business revenue becomes more important to their financial picture.

Exposing, or “naming” these Sales Saboteurs is the best way for you to start to move forward, and away from the dangerous impact of these negative images on your confidence.

In their honour, or more precisely, their dishonour, please see below 10 Sales Saboteurs of a total 22 Saboteurs from Stop the Saboteurs: Conquer Negative Thoughts that Hurt Your Revenue and Your Brand.
