Sales is one of the most difficult jobs out there. It’s not difficult because it’s complicated (although it definitely can be), it’s difficult because you’re constantly getting rejected, ignored, or spending time that you’ll never get back with people who don’t end up working with you. This is why staying motivated and energized is so critical to a salesperson’s success.

Some people are naturally motivated, but the majority of us need inspiration, whether that comes in the form of some really strong coffee, a photo of our families, or a Lamborghini Aventador. Spiro can also help, with a sales assistant that motivates you by rewarding you with images and hilarious reminders on what actions to take.
