Funsters: Todays Kudos & Encouragement (Thurs 8-5-15)

Why do you love sales? Know why I love sales? I mean, besides WalMart, where else do we get to meet such a crazy arrangement of this world’s population? Sales professionals have a tough go sometimes. Either people summarily don't trust us, hang signs in their offices about how they shoot every third sales person (and the second one just left,) and are thought of as a bunch of people that are fast talkers who never know when (or how) to shut up. Sure, though that last one might be truer in some than others.  Well, the truth is that we can find integrity challenges and an over-abundance of gregariousness in practically every occupation, but consider these few reasons why we are just fun people.

It may not feel like it sometimes, but we DO handle stress very well – I have to guess because we are given so many chances to learn that skill. And we know how to get things done. In fact, any sales pro worthy of their position usually has more things to do in a given day than hours to do them in.  There's an old saying that if you want something done, assign the task to a busy person. Need something done? Go find your nearest sales professional.

We have to stay highly motivated, without internal motivation, we will simply not enjoy long-term success. Being around self-motivated people is so much easier than to be around people whose main hobby is to complain about how things are in the world. Self-motivated people may recognize the same "bad things" in the world but instead of complaining about them, we find a way how to solve the problems. Being around problem solvers is much more fun than being around problem regurgitators.

So we put together the above three traits and it becomes obvious that we are the cure for your next get together. No longer will our guests leave our party because of boredom. Sales people, in general, have opinions and have the confidence needed to express them. We are trained in both listening and presentation skills, making us talented debaters. Assemble a group of us together in one room and get ready for some very interesting and animated conversations!

Sell the problem you solve, not the product. – Dan Thompson
