Self-doubt is a common obstacle that many salespeople face. It can cripple our ability to perform at our best and hinder our success. But what if we could learn from someone who never wavered in His belief? In my book, “The Master Salesman: Jesus and the Art of Service”, I explore how Jesus’ unwavering belief in Himself and His mission can guide us in overcoming self-doubt and building confidence in sales.
