    What’s Your Recovery Period?

    November 16, 2014 6:26PM by Tibor Shanto

    By Tibor Shanto – tibor.shanto@sellbetter.ca  No one likes rejection, and I would argue few professions have to put up with as much rejection as sales people do. We face rejection throughout the sale, from the time we try to prospect and engage with
