Growing sales weary and overcoming it
Can you really blame people? Everyone seems to be getting a little sales weary. From the second we get up in the morning until the moment our heads hit the pillow and our lids close on our eyes we are getting pitched, asked, negotiated, told, closed, cold called, prospected, and more! You and I are both in sales or sales management and I protect myself all of time from it and I believe it is your right to protect yourself as well. Some may think that if you are in the sales industry you should embrace it and let every pitch fall on you. But while I try to learn and observe from the pitches if I do get them I believe we should only need to listen to those with something to offer that will improve a component of our lives. The question then is how can we get around this in our careers?
