This is the second book from Vince Burruano. While the first book focused on next-level wisdom and refinement techniques for experienced professionals and leaders, this book starts at the beginning with the new sales rep. Start your sales career with this book and then, as you learn the ropes, you can move on to read A Daily Dose of Sales Wisdom. In both cases, Vince focuses on practical sales wisdom to achieve success.
Not every new sales professional has the benefit of a well-designed training program. This resource is meant to give new sales professionals the tools they need to jumpstart their career. It starts with the most important tasks, the ones you will need in the first weeks working in sales. Then it reviews the sales process and how to move through it effectively for each opportunity. Finally, as you build some proficiency in sales, the book reviews additional considerations to maximize your efforts and become a high-performing sales professional.
Regardless of your industry, The New Sales Professional’s Playbook will help you with practical advice, easy-to-understand ideas, and proven recommendations. The secret to sales success is you–capitalize on your greatest asset by starting off your career the right way!
Vince has also developed a wealth of online resources to supplement the book and make it easier to implement the strategies and tactics found in its pages. His passion for the sales profession and his desire to help others improve their craft are as evident in this book as in his first publication.

“There are countless books and training resources out there meant to help people improve their selling skills. But the majority tend to focus on theoretical concepts that are often difficult to put into practice. Vince Burruano has created an actual playbook for aspiring sales professionals that does the exact opposite. This book is an absolute gift filled with tactical, actionable, and impactful guidance that can be implemented immediately. I would call it a must-have, ‘how-to’ guide filled with tangible insights, based on actual experiences. Effective selling is so much more than what happens during customer meetings. Vince knows this better than anyone. He shares what it takes to help move the needle for anyone who has made the decision to embark on a journey toward achieving excellence in one of the greatest professions in the world…SALES!”
