We can all be d#@kheads sometimes!! I know I can be a hard boss to work for! That’s because I have high expectations and care for my clients, and when that care isn’t shared, I’m not happy!
But!!! That doesn’t give me, you or any boss the right to treat staff with total disrespect, abuse or create a toxic environment for your staff.
Today I was blessed to spend the day with sales managers from Honda Australia in Victoria. It’s so good to have a room filled with people that want to make a difference in their industry and focus on investing, training, coaching and equipping their staff rather than tearing them down.
In 2017, the number one reason people quit their job is that didn’t like their boss. Crazy! If you want to have influence over people, you better understand that leadership starts with caring for your team. Caring for the individuals. Caring for their goals.
Let’s make a decision today to start believing in our team, investing into them and stop being a d#@khead!!! Dave Benson #saleshustlers

I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a special talent... I wasn’t the top of my class at school, I wasn’t the superstar sports player, I don’t play a musical instrument and can’t sing... (even though I did sing a song for my wife at our wedding...) yeah I’m lucky she still married me!
Even the career I’ve made my own as a sales person, I have never been “talented” at. In fact when I started in car sales in 2001 I was a below average sales person and ended up getting fired from 2 dealerships.
BUT... I chose to hustle... I continue to choose to hustle. Because while others might be more talented and gifted than me, I’ve learnt that nothing replaces hustle, drive and determination to succeed.
I remember watching a video by Eric Thomas many years ago that said, “you might be smarter than me, you might have been born into better circumstances than me, but you won’t outwork me.” Let me encourage you to not let go of your dream to be great! You are destined to be great, and regardless of how much talent you think you have or don’t have, regardless of what others say about your goals, be determined to hustle harder than everyone else and you will see the rewards!
The thing I love (and hate!) about being a hustler, is doing things outside my comfort zone.
When I was 11 years old I wanted to be school captain at my primary school, only I had to get up in front of the entire school and tell them why they should vote for me... I totally bombed! I have no idea how much I lost by, but it wasn’t event close!
But I knew speaking in front of large audiences was not only something I wanted to do, but felt called to.
25 years later, public speaking is what I do... it’s what my business is based on... it’s what I love!!! Imagine I had have given up because it was uncomfortable?? Oh and I didn’t tell you I had a speech impediment growing up to, hated the sound of my own voice and had terrible acne even in my twenties... But I chose to continue to practice and improve my skills, be inspired by others and keep the dream alive!
Let me encourage you to never settle for tasks that you’re comfortable doing! Your success is on the other side of your comfort zone! Dave Benson @davebenson247 #comfortzone#saleshustlers
