Tom Hopkins, a fairly well known sales "guru", claims that sales is the highest paying hard work and the lowest paying easy work he knows of.
I personally do not feel that sales work is my "cup of tea". The idea of needing to talk to proportionately WAY more "no's" than "yes's" does not really appeal to me. I am one of those people that thrive on being liked. It is hard for me NOT to take a "no" personally.
Tom teaches that anyone can learn to sell, and that it is not really pivotal on personality. That may be true (or not) but ultimately the question probably comes down to whether or not you think becoming a pro in this field is worth it.
Mary Kay or otherwise, sales is the one profession that truly has an unlimited earning potential. It is just the nature of it. You are genuinely only limited by yourself.
Most of you that leave comments are obviously of the variety that have embraced sales. But what was your journey? How did you become the sales(wo)man that you are? What do you do to improve your sales(wo)manship? What helps you when you feel you are in a slump? Do you ever doubt your ability? If so, how do you reaffirm yourself?
If you don't think you could ever "do" sales, you are wrong. You may (like me) have little to no DESIRE to learn... but to say that you CAN'T is inaccurate. Like Auguste Gusteau in Ratatouille said, "Anyone can cook" the same (I think) is true for sales. ANYONE can sell. Do you want to?
