Two and a Half Hours

I used to sell with a guy who would say, "Jeff I can sell our product in 2 1/2 hours. The problem is I only get it 5 minutes at a time." It was an important dose of perspective to a young seller like myself. For as excited as I was about what I was selling, and for as simple of a sale as it seemed, there were a lot of things that needed to happen in order for everything to go through. There were also a lot of things that could've gotten in the way. When was the last time you stepped back and took a different perspective on what you sell? Are you so stuck in the weeds that you can't see the b ..read more

"What Am I Supposed To Do Now?"

by Jeff Bajorek

I was standing in an operating room with someone who had been a surgeon longer than I had been alive. He turned around and asked me, "What am I supposed to do now?" There's an industry term for what I felt next (peep the video to learn more), but once we took a collective deep breath, remembered the goal, and took one step after another, we got to a desirable outcome much sooner than we would have thought. Not only is this a reminder to trust the process. It's a reminder that your customers need you to lead them, often by reminding them of what they're capable of. Are you willing to speak up ..read more

Slow Down. Take Up Space. Think.

I see a lot of reps rush through their delivery as soon as they get the chance. It could be on a cold call when somebody answers. It could be during discovery when you feel like you have too much to talk about in a short period of time. Relax. Remember you've earned the right to their time (that's why they gave it to you), and if you continue to earn it, they'll give you more. I learned this lesson from an unlikely source at an unlikely time in my career, but it's as true today as it was 20+ years ago before I even got into sales. Don't be afraid to take up space. The value you ..read more

Longevity Benefits Your Personal Brand

Something has come up a few times over the past week, and I didn't expect it- longevity. A lot of sellers are moving around trying to advance their career, and I absolutely advocate that you find the right spot for yourself, because you'll never do your best work if you're not in the right position with the right company. But before you decide to make that next leap, I want you to consider the benefits of staying where you are, or at least staying in the same industry. After several years in the field, the logo on my business card didn't matter as much as my name. While a well-recognized ..read more

Joe Will Never Be Eddie

It was a long weekend, and I hope you got some rest before the race to the end of the year. I recorded a quick video this week because of the holiday and because a story I read a few days ago reminded me that the principles behind #SellLikeYou are valid at the highest levels. One of the best guitarists to ever play the instrument is struggling with the concept of filling Eddie Van Halen's shoes on tour. It's hard to blame him, but he's not afraid of the spotlight. What's bugging him is that his approach to the instrument is radically different. He has to shut off what makes him great in ..read more

The Company You Keep

Yesterday was my favorite day of the year. Since 1999, my friends and I have been gathering together for a pre-Thanksgiving party in my home. It started as kind of a gag- "Let's get dressed up and do something fancy" (you know, while sitting on the floor, eating off of paper plates with a keg of beer in the bathtub). We called it a Thanksgiving Feast with Merriment to Follow. I mailed paper invitations. The food wasn't great, but there was a novelty to it, and we did it again the next year. And the next year... This was our 24th gathering, having only missed in 2020 because putting 40+ people ..read more
