We need to sell. I get it. We need to pay to live. I get it. But.....
Don't think of others as (sales) opportunities. How would you feel if you were on the receiving end? And the impression that creates?
Be careful that people don't feel like you just want to sell to them. It will push them away if it feels like you're not there to help them. I will make people want to avoid you. They will loose trust in you.
Find ways to help. Understand what people's needs are, how they make decisions. Listen, ask questions - with the focus to HELP them. And if you can truly help them, then do it!
They will come to you and open up for the sale once they trust you.
