The Five Star 5 – My Favourite Sales Quotes

I have complied a large collection of sales quotes over the past 2 years. Here are my five favourites:

  • Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble – Frank Tyger
  • Become the differentiator. What you sell can be copied but you can’t – Jill Konrath
  • Stop selling. Start helping – Zig Ziglar
  • Sales are contingent upon the attitude of the salesman, not the attitude of the prospect – W. Clement Stone
  • If you’re speaking and not getting a reaction, well, you are just making a speech – Unknown

I would love to know what your favourite sales and/or business quote is.

Send me an email at TimMushey@gmail.com and I will share the top 5 responses early in 2014!

Merry Christmas!
