This post is to let you know about a couple of interesting things coming up.
My friend, Jim Keenan, has started an interesting event, Sales Smack. It is an open discussion of issues important to sales professionals. Jim has honored me by asking me to participate in the discussions.
The goal is to have a discussion every 2 weeks, at 7:00 PM Eastern. Each session, we will have a variety of participants and will be tackling a different topic. Tomorrow, January 12, the inaugural session will discuss, “Is Sales Responsible For A Company’s Growth.” As you might expect, I preparing my usual provocative and contrarian position.
There is a great group of people joining us to start the conversation, including: Skip Anderson, Tibor Shanto, Jerry Kennedy, Paul Dunay, and Jim Keenan. With a group like this, you can be sure the conversation will be interesting—but we hope that you join and add to the discussion.

I was also honored by my colleague and friend, Anthony Iannarino to be included in his list of Top 10 Sales Blogs. Again, it seems strange to be included with such distinguished company. Anthony’s blog should also be on the list (I guess modesty kept him from listing his blog.) Read his other suggestions: http://www.blogs.com/topten/top-10-sales-blogs/
