When it comes to creating a strategy for LinkedIn, a mindset for LinkedIn, the first thing I want to know is what is your plan? Who are the people that you're targeting? Then what is the promise that you need to deliver to those people so that they help you get to your plan?"

We block our blessings every single day, every single time we have a conversation. I want to ask every single person, the next time you have a conversation where you feel a little bit hesitant, a little bit afraid, a little fear of like, I’m not sure that I should do that, give yourself permission to do it.” SHELLY’S TIP: “I challenge you to make three asks of some kind and that can be in your business or your personal life. But when we develop a habit of asking and get comfortable with asking and get consistent in asking, we have to go through the uncomfortable to get to comfortable. Asking for three referrals or three reviews or three testimonials each day will change your sales career.”

Then I'm back to the food again. If you can eat half a plate, during your meals, eat half cooked vegetables, half protein. Try that Crystal Geyser and Ozarka water. People say they're refreshed in a new way once they do that.

Avoiding Sales Burnout with Gayle Lantz
This is episode 538. Read the complete transcription on the Sales Game Changers Podcast website. Tips for sales career success. GAYLE’S TIP: “A couple of things to avoid burnout. One is the internal perspective. If you are facing this personally, to get quiet, to really do some introspective thinking about what matters most to you right now so that you can get clarity. Often when we’re overwhelmed or burned out, there’s total lack of clarity. So just settling yourself down and getting a clearer sense of what matters to you most now is important. From the employer perspective, they can help facilitate that process to give employees openings to have these kinds of conversations that they really need to be having ideally with their leaders or management so that they can support, drive, become more aware of some of the issues that employees are facing. There’s a line of questioning that you can do, there are assessments that you can use to incorporate all kinds of tools that can help you gain that awareness and clarity that’s needed when you get to that point.”

Seven Emotional Triggers That Get People to Buy with Debbie Allen
This is episode 535. Tips for sales career success. Read the complete transcription on the Sales Game Changers Podcast website. DEBBIE'S TIP: "Believe in yourself enough that you can achieve your goals, whatever sales goals they are. Because again, I was just selling one gig at a time, and it went from that to people running to the back of the room buying. I at first felt, Fred, "I can't do this," because I kept bombing. I would hire another coach and I would learn a little bit and a little bit until I hired somebody and paid a lot of money. Like, "Take me through this process and teach me how to do it," because it is a system. You still put your emotions, your heart in with your education, but there's a process to this, and I just hung on. I wouldn't give up. Then I just kept believing, "I'm going to learn this. I'm going to learn it because I'm not going to quit." If you're stuck right now and you're doubting yourself, just hang in there. Believe you can do it and don't give up, because you can take your sales to the next level just learning another skill."
