The Houston Ship Channel, hosting the Port of Houston, is the largest port in the United States in international tonnage and its airport system is the top ten in the nation and #3 in flights to the Americas.

Houston’s leadership position will be strengthened with the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled to the finalized in the first half of 2016. The expansion will position Houston as the principal port of Central USA, with large implications for the trade and investment. The Houston port is the presently deepening its container port to accommodate post-Panamax ships while at the same time installing new container cranes.

The conference will serve to strengthen the “connection” between Houston and the Americas, enhancing its position as the true gateway. It will undoubtedly expand on existing trade and lead to additional transfer of technology, education, tourism and other areas.

A business team of three sitting in office and planning work

Increase your sales – and your happiness – by forming winning habits that set you up for achievement.


Start putting these habits into play to improve your performance and generate more revenue.
  • Practice Empathy: Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. It is crucial to sales success. So, commit yourself to empathizing in personal and professional interactions. Do this often enough and it will become habit. You’ll be able to better understand your clients’ pain points, needs and objectives; this will help you develop better solutions that earn you client loyalty and more sales.

  • Constantly Strive To Improve: Upper echelon performers in every field always work to get better. Do the same. Look to learn from more senior sales pros. Look to younger reps, too, for new perspectives. Seek insights from quality sales videos, articles and seminars produced by reputable sources. Most importantly, analyze your own performance. After each interaction with a client and prospect, question how you could have performed better. If you do this when calls go poorly and when they go well, you’re bound to improve your bottom line.
  • Maintain a Strong and Steady Work Ethic: High-achieving sales reps are consistent in their business efforts. Strategic and persistent, they routinely apply the methods and work habits that lead to success, always resisting the temptation to slack off. “With consistency in your work habits, you’re more apt to be motivated, hopeful and have enough deals in your pipeline to keep your sales levels where you want them to be,” says Jonathan M. Bell, author of Suddenly Successful.
  • Train Your Brain To Focus On The Positive: Be forward-thinking, focusing your attention on goals and the practical steps needed to achieve them. Start building this sunny outlook by being more mindful of your thought monologue. Catch those negative thoughts as they creep in and then reform them into positive ones. Turn, for instance, “This prospect is just going to buy from the Internet” into “I have a good plan for bringing value to this client that will encourage him to order from me.” A positive outlook will strengthen your confidence, which will radiate to prospects, making it more likely that they will order from you.
  • Plan Your Day, Every Day: Writing down what you aim to accomplish in the day significantly increases the chances those things will get done. Prioritize the list, putting at the top the tasks that must be addressed. You may have to deviate from the list, but starting out with a framework gives you structure, keeps you organized and clarifies where you should be devoting attention. Such focus will make you more productive, enabling you to serve clients better. And superior service directly contributes to stronger sales.
  • Practice Tactful Persistence: Top salespeople are consistently assertive without being aggressive. They pursue the sale with great passion using humor, scheduling follow-up times, bringing added value to the table and always having a valid reason for contacting the prospect. With strategic persistence, they keep client relationships amiable and earn more business.
