How To Overcome A Slow Month Fast
Do Exactly The Opposite
The majority of your colleagues will do exactly what their attitude suggests: They will panic, they will be unmotivated, they will start to complain and finally, they will stop focusing on their goals waiting for a miracle to happen and the phones to start ringing again.

How to survive this scourge? Stay light-years away from all these energy-suckers and do the exactly opposite of what most of your colleagues are doing: Stay positive, stay focused, work on your daily sales activities and focus on extra activities.
