Q&A: If I'm not a natural salesman, is it worth going into a sales training position to develop these skills?
It absolutely is worth committing your time and your resources to developing the right skills and habits that sales professionals use in every industry.
Realize that the profession of sales can be the most critical, responsible position you could ever pursue. Nothing happens until something is sold. I’ve been a commission only sales professional since 1986. It is deeply rewarding to see your products and services that are used by your clients. The salesperson is the most important position in our economy. Keep it honorable, value your business and make sure it’s a win/win for both the buyer and the seller.
