Musings of an age grouper triathlete, technology sales leader and parent managing physical and mental health through exercise. The entire goal is to keep two feet out of the grave, push myself beyond my comfort zone, be a positive role model for my family and achieve success in my career.

Work is hard, training is hard.  There are a lot of questions that need answers, and a lot of things that create WTF moments.  How do you answer them all?  Is there only one right way?  Nope.

I have tons of questions every day...What is the best training plan?  What is the best SALES plan?  What is a good nutrition plan?  Why should I use this piece of equipment?  How can you find the best deal?  Where can I get the best management advice?  What books do you read?  How do you set goals, objectives, can you close a deal?

Things pop into my head everyday.  I would like to use this Blog to capture some of the interesting ones...Work and Play.  People aren't one dimensional...and neither is this Blog.  We'll see what it evolves into.

Circumstances get altered, targets move and goals get adjusted. Change is the only constant.

In life, and on your bike, use your wits...and shift.

Selling Has Changed – Because Buying Has Changed

Professional selling is changing because organizations - specifically, Buyers - have evolved at a much faster rate than we have in sales. Companies are buying by committee - and Sales Reps need to learn how to drive Value. Otherwise...they are transactional. Transactions are easy to handle...and that is a problem if you are a transactional seller. This section is a place for me to share ideas about how to break the cycle by creating a Sales Brand that adds value.
