[Video] Why You Need to Go Into a Sales Meeting Naked

All those brochures and handouts you bring into your initial sales meetings are actually getting in your way of making a sale. Why is that happening?

But in the back of their mind, they're thinking -- another self-serving salesperson just trying to pitch me stuff. And they dismiss you mentally. You're gone. Never to be invited back again. If you don't want that to happen, then you need leave the brochures behind. Go naked. At least... (more)
