My “Why” for Writing the Book Carry That Quota

The excerpt below is taken from the book, Carry That Quota. This excerpt gives further context on “my why” for writing this book over the past 5+ years. Carry That Quota is available on September 22nd, 2020 via Amazon, Audible, and other online channels.

“I see sales—and work in general—in the broader context of our purpose in life and what we leave behind. Thus, the title of this book, Carry That Quota, is not just about exceeding a sales target but also about the quota we carry in life. What I mean by this is that there should be a sense that we all stand for something. To me, that means embracing the concept of leaving a place better than we found it, in our lives and at work. I care deeply about my legacy and want to share what I’ve learned with you. I’ve felt the pain from preventable failures and can give you strategies, so you don’t have to make those mistakes. I’ve hit the road long and often and want to make it easier for those who come after me. I’ve carefully crafted a work-life balance that helps me be more productive during my “on” hours so I can enjoy my “off” hours more. So, I amassed my notes to share all of these things and more with you. I hope my ideas and experiences improve not only your work but also your life.”
