Summer has arrived, and with it welcomes the bright sunshine that brings just the right amount of vitamin D you need to put that extra pep in your step. With all the fun summer activities on the horizon, the last thing you need is rejection to bring you down. You work hard and have the determination and persistence needed to be successful. The problem is that knowing you are doing everything right makes it even more difficult to not feel the sting when a potential client decides to list with someone else.

During a popular workshop, leading trainer for sales organizations, Bruce Keith, shared a helpful acronym an attendee brought to his attention, QTIP. Standing for “Quit Taking it Personally” this acronym reminds you that this decision should not be taken personally. Your clients are worried about their best interest, so instead of dwelling on what could have been, focus on your next client meeting.
