101 Motivational Sales Quotes for Sales Managers

Sales managers live in a beautiful world of constant mixed emotions -negative and positive. Apart from pressures arising from sales targets, sales team and management, sales managers still have to contend with keeping the right frame of mind to deliver optimally.

We are constantly dealing with happy emotions that come from closing deals, and painful moments of near-close-but-never-closed deals.

As salepreneurs, we need inspirations to keep the winning momentum. To remain upbeat is essential to successful sales results, and other business relationship.

Bills have to be paid!
