Summary of The Career Salesperson
Recharge Your Drive and Ambition, No Matter What Your Age
If you are an older salesperson, treat your many years of experience in sales as an asset, not a liability.
Some business professionals say selling is a young person’s game, but not Stephan Schiffman. He offers excellent advice to older salespeople who want to retain their competitive edge. Over three decades, Schiffman personally trained hundreds of thousands of salespeople, so he brings great expertise to the subject. Some readers may find his periodic reminders to buy his books and sign up for his training courses a smidge pushy. However, his guidance is useful and getAbstract recommends this book to longtime sales professionals who want to re-energize their approach to serving their employers and marketing themselves.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the business world can be tough for older salespeople
- How they can develop viable relationships with younger managers and customers
- How older salespeople can re-energize their careers
- How they can find new jobs
