TED talks to inspire you after a bad sales day

Here are some TED talks that are sure to pump you up and keep you in perspective after a setback.

“Embrace the near win” by Sarah Lewis


No one knows the frustration of a drop sale at the very end moment better than a sales person. Your client was about to sign the deal but then he suddenly decides to hold it back.
