Tonight I found myself at an industry event networking with a mix of people I’ve never met before and others I’ve known for years. Normally I hold my own in events like this, but tonight I didn’t want to play the game. But I try to be a professional, and professionalism dictated that I needed to participate in the event.
“If you want to do anything in this world, it’s all about creating a vision for others to join.”
Sell the vision. Gain some measure of traction and engagement. Repeat. It’s the life in sales. They say you can tell when a sales person’s heart isn’t into it. Tomorrow is another day, and I plan on being dynamic and compelling in making my case for that vision. But tonight I rest.
