By Mike Crandall | June 28, 2022

By Mike Crandall | April 26, 2022

Who is your sales competition? Most business owners, executives, and salespeople think about competition in sales completely wrong. It may seem crazy, but it is true.

When people think of those who are successful, they often think about individuals who did something others were afraid to do. However, most don’t truly explore what made them do those things.

Improving your BATing average

By Mike Crandall | November 23, 2021

Often times in business (and in life), we work on the wrong end of the problem. Frequently, we put time, energy, and money into things that truly will not fix the issue we are trying to resolve. This is far more common than most people realize, especially in the business world.
