Are you doing the selling or are you getting sold to?

grant

I want to dive into the topic of selling today recently I started reading the book sell or be sold by Grant Cardone and in audio form which is teaching me a lot about what actually selling is.

Selling is the ability to convince someone to buy into your mission and your vision. Its the ability to influence and get other people to buy into your vision. There is nothing wrong with selling. There is social stigma around selling that gives this word such a bad negative feeling to it but selling is vital to every part of your life. Everyone is a sales man, we just have to accept it wield that power, you do not have to make your livlihood in sales to be considered a sales men. You are always pitching something to get your way in life.

Whether that’s dating the girl you wanted or convincing your mother to take you to the friends house, we have always used our power to persuade and get our way.

The other day I had a tree that fell down into the drive way and I needed a tree removal badly, I called few companies up in Lansing but all of them were booked for the next 3 days, well this wasn’t going to cut it, so I persistently called up several tree removal companies over and over again insisting that they come out to the property to remove the tree as an emergency service, some of them would not return my calls while this one company did finally answer my call and was willing to listen to my situation and I was able to persuade him to coming over to the home at the end of the day when his schedule was cleared and his last client for the day was served. He had to work overtime from his normal shift but the point is he did the job and I had the tree removed that desperately needed someone to take care of before the morning.

As I was writing the check for the service, it suddenly dawned on me that this was exactly what Grant Cardone was talking about when he said everyone is a sales person. Yes I was the guy paying him for the service, but I was the one that convinced him to come to m property at the very end of the day because i don’t have the luxury of waiting till tomorrow morning to make this happen.

I was definitely doing the selling because I convinced him to take time out of his busy schedule and get the tree removed.

and later in the evening I saw the sales power in my little children as they persuaded me to play with them after dinner and give them some yogurt treats after dinner.

How do you develop this skill?

Every skill needs repetition and hours to get better at, especially sales 10,000 hours of mastery is where we should all be head for sales and its what I recommend for any start up and young entrepreneur that wants to quickly rise to the top, sales is essential in my humble opinion.

Sales will get you to the brand new level

Grant Cardone Drops the Hammer

It is always refreshing to hear someone that knows what they are talking about.

Sales is the most fundamental skill that is required for the entrepreneur

Sales is what drives in new revenue and without new revenue the company stagnates

And when company stagnates it dies.

Sales training is important for anyone becoming a business owner because without sales, the business cannot survive. This is why it is imperative that one works on their sales skills and closes deals. Whether its to influence someone to do business with you or persuade someone to invest in your dream & vision, sales training is very crucial to making it big in the world.

The problem is there is distaste for sales people, people that lack the ambition to make those calls because the telephone brings in dollars. The telephone is the great equalizer. With the telephone you can go into a market and carve out a big piece of the pie, with the telephone you grow into a large operation that takes care of business.

With telephone, you develop a skill that many people lack that’s learning how to sell, convincing others to buy into your goals and your vision. In sales the most important factor is to ¬†get the sale to take place.

As a entrepreneur we should be learning everything there is to know about the telephone, every detail of it and make sure that we are excelling in this skill and honing your craft and growing your confidence.

It is my priority to grow my confidence, it is my priority to become the best I can be, it is my priority to hone my skills and become the best person and grow so much confidence behind the phone that you become a giant magnet for success.

I hope you guys have a great day while I go make more sales calls and hone my skills

Hi My name is Alan Parsons

Hi my name is Alan Parsons and I’m a young entrepreneur that is learning about how to become successful starting your own business. In school they taught you about addition, multiplication, science, biology & science yet not one class was on success. About how to go out into the world and make money. Not one thing in school was about how to set goals and reach them, not one class was about commitment follow through, drive, optimism and hustling.

It is no wonder that middle class Americans are struggling today, we do not have the mental fortitude anymore to go out there and hustle so they will be forced to be employed and work like a slave, so in the end they will suffer. We are in a slave matrix that most do not want to openly admit but in this matrix the employed or the salary workers are hired to be the slaves of an organization. The amount each person is paid is set by their superior and that superior is controlled by the organization.

This is a pyramid and slave matrix that we are under and people think slavery is over. The hero is the entrepeneur the ones that break out of this matrix and shows others that this is possible for you. It’s like becoming Neo in the movie matrix.

#1 success people do that average people severely lack. They read 1 new book every month.

#2 successful people invest in themselves

#3 Successful people wake up early

Now the third element seems kind of too simple to be true perhaps but begin practicing waking up 5 AM everyday and watch how you begin to gain clarity over your life, get more done, go after your dreams, and disassociate more and more from your pain body.

In the coming weeks I will be sharing more about my recent discoveries on success.
