Death of a “nice” salesman!
As a culture, we are brought up and trained as people who are always nice.
Mostly being nice is confused with laziness, being on “back foot” or simply not asking for actions.
Or worse in sales world, being nice is mixed with unwillingness to be insistent and persistent to close the deal.
Result??? People put too much significance on being nice and not enough emphasis on getting results…
This can be a serious crime in business!
Sometimes pushing through doesn’t make you “not nice” but rather it demonstrates that you understand the effectiveness of your product for the customer!
The word nice comes from Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary is French, and it came from the word foolish, simple, silly, ignorant, and not to know.
Nice sales people finish last.
Or perhaps never finish!
