Selling has been described as an art, a profession, a career, an occupation, a science, and even a game. In the right context, those terms are valid. However, the very best producers in sales think of themselves as the CEO's of their own businesses. They act in accordance with their own business choices and business decisions. It follows then that the decisions they make will determine their ultimate success or ultimate failure. The rewards of good decision-making are far-reaching and observable. Equally, the fruits of poor decision-making, or the common reluctance to make personal choices, are often frustration, discouragement, and lesser material rewards.
