At this point you may be thinking that you are a lot like one breed, but recognize traits of one of the other breeds too, and you may be confused.
If you think you are more than one breed-you probably are. Each of us has a “dominant breed” with a little something else thrown in!
In the canine world, pure breeds are prized and expensive animals. In the world of the SalesDog they are just as expensive and uncommon, but perhaps not so prized! Some salespeople are proud members of a single breed and refuse to adopt the qualities of others.
However, the most successful salespeople are those who understand their natural strengths and work hard to acquire the favorable traits of other breeds. In the world of SalesDogs, the SuperMutt rules.
I have a friend in Texas who is one of the most brilliant business owners that I know. She was formerly the top real-estate agent in Austin. Now she and her husband own the most successful real-estate school in the state.
She is definitely a Pit Bull in Poodle clothing. She is tenacious and merciless in business, but can genuinely charm the socks off you with her grace, charm and beauty. As a matter of fact, the most potent and potentially lethal dog of any pack is the female mutt-specifical-ly the Pit Bull in Poodle clothing. (And they are just as devastating at breaking your heart!)
Dogs like these amaze people with their ability to take large bites of market share without the competition knowing they've even been bitten. Moreover, prospects are so wooed and smitten by their grace and elegance that they are frequently unaware that they are being sold.
Learn your strengths and weaknesses, tips on increasing personal sales and tips for avoiding the pitfalls so you can play to your natural talent.
