Habits Sizzling Salespeople Have In Common

Patricia Drain, author of Sell the Sizzle, had the opportunity to interview 177 top sales producers, both male and female, from all backgrounds. She discovered several main points in common.

"Each of these individuals knew exactly what I meant when I talked about selling the sizzle. After interviewing them, I discovered that each individual followed certain daily habits that took them to the level of Top Producer in their profession," says Patricia.
