With these attributes, you are certain to succeed in sales. Without them, selling well is difficult (and without a few of them, impossible).
The more business leaders I talk to in my career, the more I've learned to cringe at the follow-the-lemming mentality steering most companies. Want spectacular results in business? Find out where everyone else is going - and run, don't walk, in the opposite direction!
