Everyone lives by selling something

 Robert Louis Stevenson

A while ago I met a young woman starting out in the corporate world. She was bright, well-spoken, funny and an apparent asset to any organisation. At least, those were my thoughts before she told me in no uncertain terms that she “… wasn’t into selling that much.”

Say what?

Not to put too fine a point on it, but selling is arguably the most important skill you need to have for the survival and growth of your business. No spreadsheet, business plan, SWOT analysis, business book, or anything else will be of any use if you haven’t managed to convince someone else to buy your product or make use of your services.

We’re all selling something

In the young lady’s world, selling was some kind of dark art practised by shady characters who smoke cheap cigarettes and who try to pawn off inferior products to unsuspecting victims in grey parking lots.

In the real world, we are all selling something. (Click here to tweet this)

You were selling something when you asked your wife to marry you. You’re selling something when you tell your kids they can watch the movie once they’ve cleaned their rooms. You’re selling something when you convince your friend to start a business with you.

How to get better at it

Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.

    Hi, very interesting article I guess it might be a matter of people not preferring to do sales rather than not being able to sell…

      Thanks for your comment, Annemarie. You’re absolutely right. Many people have a mental block against anything that sounds like selling. They’ll have to work on their mindsets more than their skills.
