Teach me, teach you!

It’s funny to me that people presume to tell me how to sell things.  I have made a very successful little life for myself in sales, and they try to “teach” me how to gain a customer’s/client’s respect.  In truth, the simplest way for me is to be genuine.  Honesty.  I enjoy just sitting down and getting to the root of what someone really wants.  Whether it is advertising for the success of their business or which shoe style would work best for what they are needing it for.  I don’t push, it’s not necessary and if they merely want to try the shoes on and just need to be treated nicely for a minute, okay.  Those are the people who will be back when they have a need and then, I can fill it.

I fully realize that not everyone can be the “honest” salesperson, but it works for me and I don’t know how else to do it.

I sell shoes.  It isn’t anything overwhelmingly benevolent, but it pays the bills.  I feel like maybe I should do more with my life.  I want to do more with my life.  I wonder if any other mothers feel like I do.  Doesn’t there have to be something more?
