Albert Einstein once said, "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity." It was true then and it's true now.  This article contains the 13 steppingstones to selling success!

Here's a little information about one of the greatest thinkers in the 20th century.

He was born March 14,Guest Posting 1879 and died April 18, 1955.

He was a German born theoretical physicist who is best known for his theory of relativity.

In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.

He authored more than 50 scientific papers and in 1999 Time Magazine honored him by naming him "Person Of The Century."

You're probably wondering how I'm going to connect Einstein with the subject of sales.

One of the most memorable quotes in my collection of quotations belongs to Einstein.

I'll bet you recognize it immediately.

It was Albert Einstein who defined insanity this way.  He said, "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity."
