Knockout sales champions have an insatiable appetite for knowledge. They know that their customers look to them for expert advice and know it’s their responsibility to stay on top business trends, changes, and competitive activity.
Part of their core competency is the acquisition of “New Knowledge,” and they turn it into an art form and business discipline. They are always prepared to think through all sides of an opportunity.
Their customers view them as experts and respond accordingly, and as a result the “TRUE” Sales Champions out sell, out earn, and KO their competition repeatedly.
Don’t be a slug and keep putting off your acquisition of knowledge.
