The World is Sales

To me, job titles don’t matter. Everyone is in sales. It’s the only way we stay in business.

    I couldn’t agree more with this quote. Right after High School everyone wants to be “someone”. Have a title like a doctor or a lawyer. Something prestigious. Something that says I’ve work hard to get this title. Something that says, I’ve earned this title, this title was not simply given to me. In the American culture – and I can only speak of the American culture because I do not know how it works in other parts of the world – college is somewhat expected right after high school. But does having a college degree the only way to titles? I do not think so. I’ve earned my title and I am a college dropout. I’ve worked by butt off to get were I am at and perhaps you get paid more than me but I’m pretty sure you’ve earned it as well.

    Everyone is in sales. I quickly understood the realization of this quote. Basic economics teaches us about supply and demand. A product and/or service only exists because there is a need for it or the illusion of a needed has been created. This is why in my blog I sometimes finish with, “happy buying and happy selling” because I understand the unique relationship between the two.

    But please understand the difference between a professional sales representative and a 16 year old who just got a job at the mall so he/she can have some “going out” money. There is a clear distinction but sometimes customers treat both the same, and that should not happen.

    Let’s change the sales experience, together.
