There is an old adage that says, “Nothing happens until someone sells something.” That is especially true in business. You may have the greatest product or service in the world, but unless someone sells it for you, you are not going to be in business for very long. Even Tim Forbes — creator of Forbes magazine — said, “We make our money selling our advice, not following it.” Selling is everything.
A college professor once said, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, sell.” However, selling is an art all its own. It’s a skill, just like anything else. Whether you are selling a service like a Denver divorce lawyer or a maid in Beverly Hills who cleans the homes of celebrities, you have to have a skill to help position your product or service so that people are willing to purchase it.
If you can sell, you should. If you can’t, you should at least give it a try. Whether you are doing a garage sale in your front yard or you have a hovercraft for sale, it is true: nothing happens until someone sells something.
