The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Tyler Jack Harris set an insane goal, to sell almost three times the number of policies a great salesperson would in a year. Then he did it, for three years straight. When 7 miles was the longest distance he had ever run, he took on two ultramarathons in one week. He completed both. He sets audacious goals and achieves them. WHY? Because he said he would. In this interview, he shares his ultimate sales technique ( which happens to be a form of respect) and his goal attacking process. He sets a goal, simplifies his target, creates an action plan, and goes forth full speed, trampling over any excuse to accomplish the task. It’s your choice, he says, honor excuses or honor your word. Be in service to others Spartans & get it done!
