Looking for business growth? Your website's FINE!… just start SELLING!

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Tue, Sep 29, 2015

So I had a phone conversation today with a business owner looking to update his website and maybe a website redesign. He knew he needed help making the improvements he wanted and so we started a conversation.

Here's the deal… overall the company website was good. Did it have several areas that could be improved? YES!, but then as we continued the conversation I realized, look man, the BIGGER ISSUE is SALES! You are talking about needing business growth.

Reaching Sales Mastery: Why 3 Day Seminars Don't Get You To Mastery

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Fri, Feb 06, 2015

As a CEO of my business I sometimes think about "Mastery" and what this means.

  • How does one define Mastery?
  • How does one reach Mastery?
  • How can I hire people who have reached the level of Mastery?
  • How can I train or support training to help employees reach Mastery?
  • What kind of training does it take to reach Mastery?
  • How important is mastery and why the hell does this even matter?

Okay, you get the picture. In the book by Malcolm Gladwell titled Outliers: The Story of Success I understand (I have not read this one yet) that Malcolm says it takes 10,000 hours to reach mastery. This makes sense to me but makes me think about that 10,000 hours. So let's say you have 10 or 20 years of selling or any other skill under your belt, does that make you a master? Let's dig in a bit…

Every business has a variety of customers… some are quiet and appreciate what you do or provide; some are annoying and constantly asking for things outside of your agreement; some are profitable and some are not. Do you know who your best customers really are?

If not, perhaps it's time you give it some thought. A little bit of work in this area can provide you with some clarity and focus that can help you land more "best customers" and avoid customers that can cost you money versus make you money.

CEO Growth Mistake: Moving Top-Salesperson to Sales Manager Role

Posted by Dale Berkebile on Thu, Dec 11, 2014


You are a growing company and you have a few salespeople.

As the company grows you feel you need to step out of managing the sales team, so you can focus on bigger picture items to run and grow the company better.

So what do you do?

Often CEOs decide that the best solution is hire inside the company. This is respectable and sometimes a great solution. However make sure you understand what success in the sales manager role looks like before you hire or promote an employee to this position.
