The economy is in a downturn. Budgets will tighten, fewer dollars will be spent and you will struggle for every penny of sales revenue that you generate in the coming year.
Or will you?
Turn off your television and radio. Stop reading the paper. Above all, stop listening to the doom and gloom about the economy. The economy is what the economy is. If you spend all of your time listening to bad news, it gets more and more difficult to sell. Instead, take action. Call a prospect. Call a current customer and ask for more business. Call a current customer and ask for a referral. Call someone and sell something.
Stop thinking, “Recession” start thinking, “Opportunity.” There is always opportunity when the market is shifting. Find it. Economic downturns can also be times when fortunes are made, so keep looking. This mind set will give you the power and energy to keep selling.
