The expression “earning one’s stripes” comes from the military practice of awarding service members with crests, often resembling stripes. The stripes indicate rank – and one’s rank means a lot!
The US Army awards a single stripe for each 3-year period of service.
The Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard … stretch it to 4 years.
Now, the concept of “earning your stripes” doesn’t only apply to the military.
At Match and Fable we talk to a hell of a lot of sales professionals – from newbies to ultra-experienced!
New sales professionals pine for the day they can meet the requirements of the senior, big money roles!
The path to getting there is … successful experience.
They have to earn their “sales stripes”.
The best way to earn these stripes is to join a company that will invest in your training.
A company with a blueprint on how to be successful and a Sales Manager who will provide the guidance as long as you bring the desire to learn.
