20 Inspirational Sales & Marketing Quotes to Honor Chet Holmes

Today marks the three-year anniversary of the passing of our founder, my father, Chet Holmes. I could have written a lengthy blog post in his honor for the occasion, but it occurred to me that in life my father was never the longwinded type. Certainly there were events where he spoke on stage for upwards of ten hours, but he did so only because he had so much knowledge to share–there wasn’t a wasted breath. “Straight to the point” was truly his modus operandi. So Instead I’ve decided to keep it short and to the point. Today we celebrate Chet Holmes’ life, his work, and his pithy wisdom by collecting his very BEST quotes.

In celebration of my father’s life, here are a couple of free videos for you to enjoy:

    What’s your favorite quote?! One of my favorites is definitely the one in there that says, “Maturity is when all your mirrors turn into windows.” It was one of my father’s favorite quotes. He’d been telling me that since I was 6. Definitely a fav. What about you??

    So many great quotes come to mind, but “The one with the most passion wins!” is a top favorite!

    Though it’s afternoon now, I’m still out prospecting. It’s encouraging to read “I love cold calling in the morning,” as your first quote. I’ll start even earlier tomorrow.

    Wow! So many good ones. My favorite ones have to do with determination and persistence. That’s what moves mountains. That’s what separates the great from the average.

    “Follow up makes the difference between mediocrity and greatness”. I have found that really good sales people who lack excellent follow up stay just really good. However, those with average selling skills that have outstanding follow up skills slaughter those with average follow up skills in the results dept.

    One of my personal favorites: Do what you love, and love what you do, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life!

    Pig headed seems more apt as it is the same determination as my wife has in our business.
