While I was writing my recent post on the last two Sales Experiences I have had this week, I was reminded of a conversation I had with a friend I went to school with who contacted me with some questions about hosting a home party in her house. Knowing that I work with Home Party Plan Consultants all over the world, she came to me for support on how to Hostess a successful home party. The conversation that ensued highlighted one of the problems with the "old school" trainings still being taught today.
One of the blessings/Curse to working from home is that door-to-door salesman are hard to avoid. Because I am in sales, and have been in sales for many years, my heart goes out to these guys every time they knock on my door. This week I had two very different experiences of these sales guys that I wanted to share with you.
