What’s the difference between people who dominate their industry and those who struggle? Is it luck? Is it connections? While those factors might play a role, science has actually found that people who have certain personality traits have a better chance of succeeding in sales than others. It’s these inner characteristics than can mean the difference between bringing in new clients on a consistent basis or not.
