Sales. It’s a dirty word for some of you. Most of our experiences with “Sales” people are unpleasant. Sales has a bad rap. Because it’s often perpetrated by people who use manipulative, high-pressure techniques and will stop at nothing to get the sale.

If this has been your experience and exposure to what it means to sell, then it’s probably not much of a leap to assume you avoid selling at all costs. You know you need to for the sake of your business, but you don’t want to feel slimy afterward. In this video, Chris is going to break down what sales is, and give you a different way of approaching it.
