I did a sales meeting this morning for one of our automotive clients and presented this question to the sales staff. "Are you the CEO of this Dealership"? Everyone answered "NO"...think again I said!.
I believe to be successful you must have a CEO mentality. All successful sales people view themselves as a business within a business. Never forget that the dealership writes and signs your check, but you fill in the numbers. Always take responsibility for everything.
You are the CEO!
