During this war-for-talent-economy, it’s difficult to find top tier talent. Business owners are looking for Millennials who defy the stereotypes. They want hunters and BDR’s who are hungry for new business. They want to hire salespeople with the sales DNA needed to overcome obstacles, take responsibility for their performance, and deliver results.

My husband, Gordon, and I, love to go on long motorcycle trips. Right now we are on the road again to witness the gorgeous explosion of red, orange, and yellow on the maple trees of Vermont.

What are you doing to help your Millennial Sales Leaders to beat workplace burnout?
