The Sales Evangelist

As we move into 2022, there’s no time like the present to set new goals and be prepared for the year ahead. So what is Donald doing to prepare for 2022?  He’s adding three books to his reading list (and you should too.)

The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks:

  •  Getting past your comfort zone can be a challenge. When it comes to quotas, commissions, and sales targets, many salespeople trap themselves into thinking that they can only do a certain amount. 
  • But I’ll ask you this – why can’t you make more? Don’t be your own worst enemy!
  • If your company limits your commissions, maybe it’s time to find a new job to break through and get to the next level. 

The Billion Dollar Secret by Rafael Badziag:

  • This guy interviewed billionaire people and asked them what it takes to make a billion dollars.
  • You may not get a billion dollars in sales revenue yourself, but why can’t you get six or seven figures?
  • Get past limits you set yourself to unlock more money for you.
  • Salespeople reap what they sow – focusing on the ideal customer who makes more significant purchases can be what brings onto the 7-figure level.

The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran:

  • Salespeople are super productive between October and December because of the shorter quarter. But why can’t you have this same urgency throughout the year?
  • The 12 Week Year breaks down overarching goals into smaller, 12-week-long goals that help you achieve whatever goals you’ve set for yourself.

And now, the bonus book: Donald’s Sales Planner!

  • (Yes, this is a shameless plug.) When searching for a sales planner, Donald realized those in the market weren’t what he wanted. 
  • Instead of a reactive planner, he wanted one that kept him focused on his goals and moving forward.
  • His planner encourages you to focus on tasks that directly correlate to success by utilizing the 12-week concept framework.
  • It features a performance tracker at the end of each day or week.
  • It is a 3-month planner, promoting focus on each quarter, and features a performance tracker for each day and week to ensure you’re on track to reach quotas.
  • Even if you don’t use this planner, plan! Spend 30 minutes each day planning the next day to see more success in the new year. 
  • To order the planner for the start of 2022, visit donaldk4.sg-host.com/salesplanner.
