I bet you didn’t know that a huge proportion of the most successful people on this planet started out in sales.
Whatever job you do, I promise you that knowing how to sell will help you.
So get yourself some training – formal, informal, online, face to face, books, podcasts, videos, whatever. Then practice. And practice again and again and again.
(I’m good at sales, but I never stop learning and practising)
Do this and you never know, one day, you might be as successful as these people who started out in sales:
