Always Be Closing: Sink every shot like Dwyane Wade

Always Be Closing: Master the Hidden “I”‘s in “Team”

"There is no I in team". Despite those who swear by it, there is no evidence Green Bay Packers Head Coach Vince Lombardi was first to use the phrase. He certainly may have been a devotee of the phrase and it's meaning, and he might have even coined it somewhere down the line, but [...]

Always Be Closing: Never Work for Free

It's one of the clear and present professional dangers, whether you're someone seeking a position with a new employer, or a firm of any kind seeking to convince a potential client that you, and only you, are the right person for the job. Like how I weaved that Tom Clancy reference into the first [...]
