Bonnie’s East Coast Service Update

We have had many inquires about the details for Bonnie’s East Coast memorial service. It will be held on Friday, June 1 at 12pm. The location is 8th Street, Surf City, Long Beach Island, New Jersey. The service will be on the beach and last about 60 minutes. Casual dress is requested, food and drinks to follow.

50 MARATHONS IN 50 STATES!

Well, I ran my first Marathon in 1994 and at that time had no idea that this was in my future – what a journey! After falling short of my goal of a sub 4 hour finish in that first marathon, I ran another and went sub 4 three months later. Found I got a little bit of a Marathon bug and ran 10 over the next 10 years. Then, in 2004 in LA Marathon a guy passed me with a shirt that said he had run a Marathon in all 50 states. I caught up with him to learn more, and within 24 hours, it landed on my Bucket List. In April of 2018, I finally crossed the finish line in New Jersey, the state in which I grew up and met my wife to be Bonnie. It sure was a joy to be surrounded by so many family and friends cheering me on (compared to plenty of lonely marathons in the journey).

Crossing the finish line in any marathon is a sweet feeling of accomplishment, so you can just imagine how sweet state 50 was. A bonus that day was making it to the podium for my age group, coming in 3rd place! Many have asked “what’s next?” and that sure is an easy answer: The Great Wall Marathon on May 20, which will complete my goal of a Marathon on all Continents.

All of this provides fodder for taking stock of how you are doing on your goals for 2018. Are they in writing? Do they have measurable specifics? Do you have an accountability process established? What steps can you take now that will get your goals accomplished by year end? People tell me regularly that they want to achieve success. They tell me they have goals in life. They tell me they are committed to their goals. Yet, all too many are lacking answers to the questions I just posed. Who are you and what actions will you be taking to “raise the bar” of your performance/results?

WHO ARE YOUR COACHES?

Who are your mentors? How well are you doing “modeling the masters”? I could be directed these questions to most anyone in life, and they would apply and have value. CEO’S, Sales Managers and Sales Professionals all!

These days I’m at best a casual participant in the triathlon sport. In my heyday, when I was competing at a level that got me to be a member of TEAM USA and to Kona in the Ironman World Championship, I had as many as 6 Coaches. No sense me making up the route to success; better to just go to those who have “been there, done that”. At 13 years old, I benefited from the experience of 200 successful business owners and learned the value and rewards of having goals in writing and a plan to achieve them. For decades I’ve had a “Board of Directors of my Life”, numbering 5, who hold me accountable to my personal goals and each meeting with me 4 times a year to ensure I’m making progress. And, over the years, I’ve typically relied on at least 3 Coaches on my business (beyond that of a Board of Directors or Advisory Board). All of this has served me well over the years.

Similar to my words earlier regarding Practice and the desire to be the BEST, pick whatever role model you like (someone at the top level of their field), and I would wager there are one or more Coaches involved. So, who are your Coaches, and when do you plan to get going here?

ASK QUESTIONS AND LISTEN

You’ve heard me say it often, this is the key to sales success. Most sales people are out there “showing up and throwing up”, with the focus all about their company and its products/services. People do not want to be sold. The successful sales professional is all about the client in focus. It’s about helping them with their pain and pleasure points. Helping them with their needs, opportunities and problems. And, the way to determine that, is by asking questions.

Before any call, we advise “pre-call preparation” to include: What is the purpose of this call? What do we know? What do we need to know? What do we need to get them talking about?

If I asked you for your top 10 questions, would you be ready to provide them to me? On the spot? How about questions you’ve made in the past that have proven to be effective? Or, are you like most sales people and just out there winging it?

If our aim is Building Relationships, questions centered around hobbies, sports, interests and personal/business accomplishments are great sources of finding personal commonalities.

When searching for identifying pain, how do you go about it?

When looking for opportunities to add value, what questions have you found that really opens up the prospect?

Often, while conducting role practice sessions, great questions and trails of questions can be identified and discovered.

The best sales people are canned, saying the same thing, the same way, when encountering a situation. So also is true of the skilled questioner. Be ready with your questions, so you can enhance your ability to LISTEN. Without such preparation, we find people thinking what they will say next is happening in lieu of truly listening. Be prepared before the call.
