Sales isn’t for everyone!
Sales is probably one of the most hated jobs!
I asked a class full of MBA freshers- Who want to go in sales?
The ‘hands up’ will tell you a story! There were 11 hands up in a class of 100 where MARKETING was the compulsory specialization!
However, I wasn’t surprised, and I thought it’s not really fair without telling them- What’s A Selling Job, to get a better response.
So I told them a story! What sales is!
Sales has tremendous growth opportunity guys! I have seen people rising from a 6000 Rs a month to grow to a Lac Rs. per month and more just in 4 years!
Yes you have huge pressure, targets to achieve- daily, insults on mail and in cabins and in Morning meetings when you miss the targets! But that’s what makes you learn! Sales job most times make you travel – 100 kms per day 6 days a week; also 7 days a week. Those who don’t take break even work 7 days a week achieve higher numbers and get higher and higher incentives.
Sales is one profession where monthly incentives, can be 3X of your own salary! And 3X is the figure which I personally have achieved on an average 6 months in 12!
Yes you may not have times for parties, and crave for 1 day off but if you give your 3 years of your life completely, you will see yourself grow in a way that you will never never need to worry!
