TSE 117: One Simple Activity I Learned as a Mormon Missionary Which Has Revolutionize My Sales Prospecting

LDS Missionary, Sales Training, Donald Kelly This, my friends, is not an episode about preaching or religion but this is about helping you learn to OPEN YOUR MOUTH.

What many of you probably don’t know is that I went to Brigham Young University-Idaho and I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.When you’re 18 years old, as a member of the LDS church, you have an opportunity to do a two year proselytizing missionary trip anywhere in the world. Mormon missionaries can be easily distinguished by their white shirts and ties, riding on bicycles.  I was called to serve in the Detroit, Michigan area. I lived in the city of Detroit and the surrounding suburbs during the two year period.

Here are some of the great things I’ve learned from that mission trip which has helped catapult the way I do sales:

  1. Open your mouth to everyone.
  2. Be ready to sell every moment of the day and share your message (even when you’re not in your sales mode).
  3. Talk to everyone that you come in contact with.

There are so many people around you everyday and all you have to do is just talk you them. You’ll be amazed how many opportunities you’ll comes across. Not all are ideal customers, but one thing I know for sure – they may know an ideal customer for YOU.

So… Be prepared!

Have your business card.

Have a message or know how to clearly state your purpose/what you do and why others need what you have to offer.

Just open your mouth!
