The Power of Velocity Mindset Explained


Great Sellers

For over 36 years Ron Karr has been in sales and leadership positions and is widely recognized as a sales success expert. Ron discusses his methodology, the Velocity Mindset, and 7 traits of great sellers.

This Sales Expert Interview covers:

What is a Velocity Mindset?

  • We all want to do more. But how do we gain speed? Ron talks about what we need to do, and not do, to achieve this.

Lack of focus

  • The right kind of focus requires a customer-focused mindset.
  • Are you going into the sales process as a salesperson or a leader?

Emails and voicemails

  • Why don’t people reply to your emails or voicemails? Visualize your goals first and this might help. Don’t focus on the end-game.

Positioning and building alliances

  • Be careful how you are positioning yourself when talking to prospects. Great sellers are seen as trusted advisors.
  • Referrals are the best way to get business.

Asking good questions

  • Questioning is a fundamental skill that some people still struggle with. Don’t ask status based questions.
  • Make sure you aren’t making too many assumptions. Clarify, clarify, clarify!


  • If you don’t have empathy, you are more susceptible to a self-focused mindset. Help get people to where they want to be and you will reap the benefits.
  • There are a lot of things you need to understand about your buyer like what kind of risks they are taking.
  • Great sellers get to the heart before the mind.


  • Ask people about their goals. Get to know them and help them get there. They will be more likely to listen.


  • If you can’t keep promises to yourself, you can’t keep them to others.
  • Let people come to their own conclusions.
