What makes a salesperson a superstar?  Veteran sales trainers Bill Caskey and Bryan Neale get into today’s Mailbag Monday episode with a conversation with Butch Bellah, author of Sales Management for Dummies and The 10 Essentials of Sales Superstars.   They discuss Butch’s recommendations for how salespeople can truly become superstars, including understanding that people buy what they want and not what they need.
