The pressure felt is enormous. In today world, sales is one of the most highly-paid professions. But it is equally challenging. A person in sales will become an expert in:
1 .Time management Fixing up appointments prior to a day or a week and then meeting clients at that appropriate time is their regular affair. In case they are not able to reach, they end up stating I will be late or I am just 10 minutes away when in actuality they are 20 minutes away.
2. Number and Money drove Only numbers talk, bullshit walks. They work hard to achieve targets and earn incentives to buy what they desire.3. Excellent in interpersonal skills All sales persons are good speakers and have amazing negotiation skills. They believe in listening and showing empathy to their clients.
5. Commitments are meant to be postponed Morning meetings commitments to their managers seldom see being delivered on time. Postponed client meeting postponed or a lead turning bad, is just a part of the job.

10. Meeting strangers and asking questions is their daily affair Every new sales call is like going for a blind date. They don’t know how the person will look but then once they meet them they instantly connect and never hesitate to ask questions.
