No matter what field you are in, ask yourself the question,
Why should someone use me as compared to my competition?
Personal Branding/ Growth
- Do My Actions reflect what I say my brand is?
- To dangerous of a time to blend in with the crowd!
- Competitive Edge
- It's not who you know, its who knows you.
- All About them
- Do we sell in terms of the Client.
- How you can help them
- Professional Sales vs Rep
- Self Education
- Bill Gates dedicates an hour a day to reading/ Education
Many people say the they are too busy to read or go to seminars. I challenge this thought tremendously and quote Stephen Covey. He would say " we must sharpen the saw." A lumberjack must sharpen the saw on a routine basis otherwise chopping down the tree becomes extremely difficult. Same thing with our minds.
Self Education can create unique problem solving opportunities and truly differentiate yourself from your competition.
I know that personally I have to fight to make the time to study, however there are always ways of getting things done if you schedule it. Also, Audiobooks make it extremely easy to stay plugged in.
