It may be called the “summer slump,” but it’s really a revenue slump.

It happens every summer. It is the phenomenon called the “summer slump.”While vacations can be fun, it’s also a time of decreased productivity and missing creativity. Inaccurate forecasts and missed revenue targets are the norm.  To exaggerate the point, Europe is practically closed in July and August as people go on holiday.  Truly, the summer slump happens long before summer.  The cure for it, a way for you to bring distinctive advantage to your business, can be summed upin a word: activity.

Whether you’re the CEO or a sales representative, you’re a seller. You know that in order for your company to be competitive, you’ve got to continually make new sales.

Still, it isn’t enough to just make sales. In this business environment, you’ve got to do such a stellar job for your customers that they return to you again and again – and become lifelong customers.

There’s just one problem: Such sellers are a minority.

1. Go for the standing ovation every time.

The ultimate downfall for most business people is their inability to handle rejection. But if you’re going to make it as an entrepreneur, you have to be able to take rejection… lots of it. My mentor told me a long time ago to count the number of “no’s” I get and realize that each “no” simply moves you closer to a “yes.”

“Give each pitch your best shot each time,” he told me. “Never take a shortcut.”
