Many people despise the typical salesperson. If I were to ask the average person walking down the street if they were in sales, I'd probably hear a resounding and collective, "NO!" And guess what my response would be: "Oh, you're not? Well, I hate to break it to you, but we are all in sales. Nothing happens until something is sold."
That's important so I'll say it again: nothing happens until something is sold! It's no secret, sales people have received a bad reputation over the years; and in all honesty, it may have been warranted at times. Ask someone how they feel about car salesmen, insurance salesman, or even a kitchen knife salesmen, and you will probably see their nose turn up or a grimace appear on their face. I can't tell you how many times I've heard,
"Oh my goodness, I hate sales! There is no way I would ever consider selling in any capacity!"
