16 Fun – You Gotta Have It!

Another mini-sode in the can!  Jeff and Christie have a ton of fun in this short episode that is all about FUN! In fact, we say fun 63 times in this short episode.

So why an episode on fun you ask?  Well, we believe you’ve got to have fun to make sales worthwhile.  We don’t know a single successful sales person that just collects a paycheck and if you do, don’t be surprised if your customers start running for the hills.  Don’t let yourself become robotic in your interactions and make it your mission to ensure others have fun too.

If you aren't having fun, you are doing something wrong. Work hard, sell hard, but have fun doing it. Click To Tweet
