In the wake of some unexpected time at home or away from your customers, you may be overwhelmed with the new responsibilities of a life at home. As well as finding new ways to stay in front of your customers (such as LinkedIn, cold-calling, and one-to-one videos), this is an optimal time to sharpen your craft and learn how to be an even more valuable asset for your customers.

To help in this endeavor, we’ve compiled a list of the Top Ten sales blogs, podcasts, and websites that our team regularly follows and thinks you would enjoy, too.
