Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. Today I want to talk about just being a good team player. You’ve heard me say it before and I’ll say it again: Sales is a team support. None of us succeeds alone, and like with any good, strong relationship, you’ve got to work at it. Sometimes you need to lean on them to help you pull together some crazy set of details you need for an important RFP response, or you need help with a presentation deck or legal redlines or executive air cover, or any number of things that happen throughout a sales process and all-around your business.
It’s so important not to just be a taker in those relationships. You’ve got to give back, you’ve got to pay it forward, sometimes you need to reduce the pressure because of what’s going on in the world or in their lives. If you haven’t picked up on it already, there’s usually something behind the tips that I share here. They’re usually based on something I’m working on, something I’ve done that’s helped me, something I’m thinking about, or just something that I’m seeing. In this case, this idea of supporting those who support you is really personal.
All of the design work that you see around Sales Success Everything is produced by an incredible husband and wife design team who are based in Moldova. They were the first members of team Sales Success and they have come through for me again and again and again. But right now things are kinda crazy for them. They’ve got a lot of family members in Ukraine and there are all kinds of impacts that are spilling over into their country and into their lives. I know it’s unbelievably stressful for them. There’s only so much I can actually do to help from over 6,000 miles away, but sometimes it’s just listening or providing that little extra leeway. This is maybe an extreme example, but it’s good to know what’s going on, in the lives of the people around you. It’s important to make sure that you’re doing everything you can to take care of and support the people who are taking care of you and supporting you, whether that’s in business or in life. Think about it.
And now I’m going to turn around and ask too much of my audio editor, because I’m way late in getting this to him, but I’ll find a way to make it up to him. Thank you Emin, this doesn’t happen without you, and you too Joanna. Thanks for being so consistent in your support of me.
