Are You On Autopilot? (The FRONT #69) – LIVE!

by Mike Phillips

Well… are you on autopilot? I’ve talked before about how it is important to have a plan, and have a process to go with that plan. Routine, in general, is good for many reasons. When we get accustomed to doing same or similar things, it takes the guesswork out of things. When there is less […]

Fast Forward 7 Years…

by Mike Phillips

This came through my feed (my wife’s actually) from 7 years ago today. Sometimes, it’s worth looking back only to see how far along we’ve come. It’s also fun to see what was relevant in our lives before and what is important now. I think the principles I was discussing seven years ago are still […]

Some Leadership Notes (The FRONT #67)

by Mike Phillips

Today, I just compiled some of my thoughts on paper and put together five leadership notes. Many people think they are leaders. Some are correct… and frankly, some are not. Sometimes people are just wrong in their assessment. Right now, in 2018, anyone with some social accounts and money to spend on ads can stake […]

And The #1 Sales Skill Is…

by Mike Phillips

Listening. That’s right, whether outside sales, inside sales, sales development rep, business development rep, B2B sales, or “other” sales. I believe that listening is still the number one determining factor in sales success. You’ve heard the adage, “God gave you two ears and one mouth so you should listen twice as much as you speak.” […]

🔥 Working Through Burn Out 🔥 (The FRONT #64)

by Mike Phillips

I have had several salespeople lately refer to “burn out.” So I thought I would put my spin on how to work through it. What determines if you are burned out? By definition, burn out is physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress. (Unless you are Mike Davenport – here – LOL) Overwork […]

Do Social Ads Work? … Only If You Do!

And note, I’m not an employee or an affiliate of TECOBI; I am a fan, however. I believe in Facebook and other social advertising to generate sales leads. This can be […]
