Stop a Sales Slump in its Tracks

bust your slump cover outline 150x150 p1[1]I know a few salespeople who are in the middle of some incredible sales slumps.  They are suddenly not finding new opportunities, having trouble moving existing opportunities in their pipeline, not getting the opportunities that are closable, closed, and starting to feel down about the whole turn of events. Where to start!

I have wanted to write a book on how to reverse a slump for a long time.  For years I've watched how baseball players get into hitting slumps, pitching slumps and fielding slumps and how some bust out of those slumps while others remain mired in slumps for way too long.  Some of those slumps are technical or mechanical, some are mental and some are nothing other than chance.

Well, Paul McCord, author of Bust Your Slump, beat me to the punch. His brand new book, released today, has a dozen slump busting strategies to fill your pipeline in 30 days.  If you order the book from for $14.95 today (9-23-10) or tomorrow, he'll include dozens of valuable bonus gifts from some of the best sales minds in the business that are sure to make you happy .  Even if you're not in the middle of a slump today, you should have this book around for the next time things slow down.
