5 Points that will help you sell....ANYTHING

We're all salesmen in one way or another. If you go on a job interview, you're selling yourself. If you're a barber, you're selling a service. If you're in sales, you....well you get it. Sales is one of the highest paid professions whether you like it or not. If you do like it, here are a few pointers that might help.

1) People buy from who they like
-People would much rather spend money/do business with who they like. Nobody likes the greasy guy that'll do ANYTHING to get a sale. Establish trust early by being yourself. People smell fake.

2) People don't care what you have to say
-Again,People dont care what you have to say. They care how you can be a benefit to them. Shut up and listen to their needs, try to meet them. Thank me later.

3)People don't like pushy
-People don't want to be sold, they want to purchase. A wise man once said, "Let people do what they want to do, they're going to do it anyway." Don't oversell
Provide info, state how it benefits them, answer questions...

4) Know your product/service
-Know what you're selling. If someone asks you about your product and you don't know, you look stupid. Have a good knowledge of what you have to offer, or at least have a way of finding out what you don't know. If you don't know something, be honest, tell them you'll find out the best answer and get back with them. You'll sound stupid if you try to make it up as you go. Save yourself the embarrassment and be truthful. the truth shall set you free!

5) Build a relationship
To reiterate, people buy from who they like. Show that you're likable. Show you're a regular person too, not just some guy trying to make a buck. Crack a joke, find something in common, or even give a compliment. Build rapport. If people feel good about you, they'll buy MORE from you. Build relationships.

If you're going to sell, sell for yourself. Get or build a product you believe in, and go compete in the marketplace.

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

Massive Equifax Breach: What you need to know to protect yourself

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
