Everyone lives by selling something

Robert Louis Stevenson

Thought for the week

If we think about it, we are all selling something. Teachers are selling us the idea that knowledge is useful. Mothers are selling the notion that getting to bed early is good for you. Employees are selling themselves at interviews and coaches are selling the benefits of making changes. Yet so many of us are very uncomfortable with the notion that we are salespeople.

Challenge for the week

What would happen if you were to embrace the salesperson in you? In what small way can you improve your selling skills this week?
