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.

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
