Life changing5 star

I’ve been in corporate sales for just over 10 years, predominately in Saas and telecommunications. I recently switched over to a PEO/Broker role and found myself hitting the proverbial wall. I started reading “Fanatical Prospecting” at the advice of a sales trainer and it’s truly changed my thinking, approach, and life overall. I have applied so many of the techniques from Jeb’s book into my day to day routines and it’s already paying serious dividends! I strongly recommend this book to any sales people out there regardless of tenure or role. This is an absolute must read! Also check out Jeb’s sales gravy podcast!! It’s money, no pun intended!55

Sales is the Million Dollar Skill5 star

This is one of the few books on Sales that I have really enjoyed. Jeb does a great job and I absorbed the book via audio. As the Author of G.U.T.S. Sales Method I like a book that exemplifies the Chutzpah in Persuasion. There is a reason that 1%’s make Millions and the rest struggle. You need 3 things to succeed in Sales -Knowledge-Leads-Sales Skill. Claude Diamond J.D. "How to sell with G.U.T.S."55
