Tweetable Quotes:

  • “We can’t work with everyone, right? There have to be some core principles that you have in place, right? I don’t want someone that’s looking for a 30-day quick fix because that’s not what we do. If anybody promises that you should run, right? Like, there’s no such thing as a quick fix.” – Mick Hunt
  • “If you’re not willing to make the phone calls, do the follow-ups, or not willing to learn then it’s not gonna work. There’s nothing that I can say that’s gonna make you better. Nothing that my coaches can tell you that’s gonna make you better if you don’t have that trait. It’s not gonna work.” – Mick Hunt
  • “If you were fresh out of college and you kind of had that mantra about you, you are definitely coming on board. I just look for that sales trait because that’s the one thing that I can’t teach. I can’t teach you how to go get it and that you’re going to get told no more than you’re going to get told yes, and love it.” – Mick Hunt
