It’s March 1, and I love it when a Monday is the first day of a month.
Those of us who sell have 10 months left to make this year a success.
That’s over 83% of the year.
Even if you haven’t had a great start to the year, there’s plenty of time to center yourself, orient towards proactively communicating with customers and prospects and go help more people. They will thank you with their money.
I want to write a bit about what I see happening this year:
This pandemic is ending.
There is more hope than dread in the air — the light at the end of the tunnel is coming closer, glaring brighter.
It gets even better:
The stock market is at record highs.
Companies have a lot of cash saved from many months of slowed spending and hoarding cash.
If you sell to consumers, savings shot way up during the pandemic, because here, too, spending was cut way back.
For companies and consumers, where was there to travel? What was there to do for the past year but sock away money for better days?
Now, we all slowly emerge, our customers’ coffers filled with cash and enthusiasm for the future.
The better days are just about here my friends.
I believe we will look back at the coming years as the Roaring 2020s, where optimism mixes with joyful relief and companies — and consumers — invest greatly in themselves and their operations.
Are you ready to sell into this environment?
Are you prepared to take advantage of the most prosperous growth years for salespeople…possibly ever?
If not, I encourage you to sit down right now and spend some time mapping out what this looks like for you, in as much detail as possible.
And if you need a sounding board, or some help, call me — this is what I do.
The firehose of buying is about to open up.
Are you ready to take advantage?
