Before starting at Sales by 5, Erik asked me what I'd like to do in life. I told him I was up for anything except accounting or being in sales. The funny part is, I sell and I love it. I don't realize I'm doing it while I'm doing it and I never thought of myself as being a "salesman".
I don't sell in the traditional sense of the word - knocking on doors, cold calling, etc. I sell because what I believe in, know, learn about and then recommend, makes people's lives better! I can't keep myself from selling Blackberrys because I'm convinced that they make people's lives better! Over 90% of my close friends now own Blackberrys because I told them they needed one and they listened. They thank me; their bosses, friends and co-workers now want one.
So you now know that everyone sells, but what is it that you really sell? Do you sell yourself, your ideas, your hobbies, your passions? Is there a career buried in there that you should be chasing? Are there opportunities that are passing you by because you're too scared? There is no better time than right now to get moving in life. Become remarkable, do something great, be the person you want to be. Take action.
