For the Sellers
Obvious Plant x Valentino Garavani VSLING bag, contact for availability
Microbags were big (small?) in Fall 2019, and the trend is expected to continue into next year. Lizzo sported this limited edition bag at the AMA's saying it fit all the f-s she had to give.
The path to Sales Glory is paved in rejections, so we think that captures the right sentiment.
A Smaller Bag, free
You might not be able to get your hands on Lizzo's bag, but you can shrink the bag your sales team is carrying. Modern Sales Pros + Concert's survey of nearly 100 companies with 9,000 reps shows that comp plans that break down large quotas into smaller, more achievable goals perform much better.
Find out how to do this in our free guide, or book a demo to see how our platform can help you.

Domaine de Pellehaut Armagnac, $86
Armagnacs are expected to be the big spirit of the winter, so if your team is still calculating commissions in Excel, this should keep their *spirits* up as they manually get through year-end commissions statements.
On second thought, maybe give it to them after they finish!
