Clip from Episode 40: Top Cintas Sales Executive – Paul DiVincenzo – Relationships, Focus, Adaptability and Action:
For just getting started. It’s funny because I think a lot of people come out and there you know especially now with the environment of entrepreneurialism people really want to try to be a great business person from day one. And a lot of times you just can’t do that. So for news sellers I really tell them to focus on becoming an expert in what they’re doing and then really learning how to how to excel at that. And so the reason the focus on that in the beginning is because you cannot be successful unless you are really great at what you’re doing. So I think a lot of people skip over that. And in the world that we live in right now it’s easy to swipe this way or click on that thing and really studying what you’re doing and becoming an expert at it leads to credibility. It leads to building your reputation. It leads to building your internal brand. It bleeds to all those things that allow you to be successful. And I haven’t even talked about work ethic.
