There’s nothing more motivating than feeling empowered by some real hard-hitting words. If you’re in the sales or marketing industries, then you definitely have experienced the highs and lows. Sometimes all you need is just a little pick-me-up or a motivational quote that will spark a change.
Understanding what motivates people helps us to better tailor our content and overall messaging to speak to their needs.

It’s that time of year when we take a step back and appreciate what has made a big difference in our lives and our business for the year. At the top of both lists this time around is Social Selling, which has enriched relationships and brought success in the marketplace for many.
Here’s a review of Social Selling success stories over the year. Our list includes some of the top accomplishments at the corporate level, including expanding the pipeline and higher revenue overall.

Don’t worry, be happy.
Let me give you some background. Us wonderful sales professionals are constantly worried. Worried about quota/targets, meetings, pipeline, closing the deal, you name it! It’s enough to make us want to develop a habit of biting our nails.
And now that social selling is in the picture, the majority of us worry about what to say, how to say it, when to say it, who to say it to, you get the picture. But I’m here to assure you that all worrying does is lead to fear. And this fear will stop you dead in your tracks!
You see amigos/amigas, the fear is all in your head. Do what I suggest here and I promise you that you’ll be unstoppable. Before I begin, let me say this: I’m not promising incredible results – if that’s your expectation then I respectfully question your understanding of our sales profession.

Everyone in the sales & marketing industry hits motivational lows from time to time. It unfortunately comes with the territory. Perhaps no one has been returning your calls today or engaging with your content. Maybe you just lost a big deal or have hit writers block trying to meet a deadline for a new blog post.
It happens to ALL of us so fear not if this is currently your situation because you are assuredly not alone. This low you experience may last a day, a month or even a year at times. And there is no mistaking it, the feeling just down right sucks.
Luckily though inspiration is all around us in this brilliant age of information that we live in. On the other side of one simple mouse click could be a quote, video, picture or message that picks you back up again and puts a smile on your face. As some of you may have noticed (if we’re connected on LinkedIn) I love sharing inspirational quotes with me network. This is partly because it is a nice break from the constant Social Selling content that I post out and also partly because I hope that maybe, just maybe, someone out there who is experiencing one of these low points happens upon my post and it brightens their day a little bit.
So by popular demand, here is a list of my favorite quotes that individuals within my network have liked, reshared and commented on because they have also found a little inspiration hidden within… I hope you do too 🙂
