Do You “Sell Like A Girl”?
Hey gang …
You know I am always wanting to bring you the best stuff so here is a blog post from a friend of mine, and a real sales expert Jill Konrath! And no! I am not the least bit concerned about sending you to someone else’s site that you might want to buy from instead of me! If Jill’s stuff helps you and you want to buy from her not only am I ok with it … I want you to! At the end of the day what I want for you is to see you build the sales career, and life, you want!
So, check it out …

I’ve been rebelling from the day I entered this (still) male-dominated profession. I didn’t intend to. In fact, when I first started out, I tried really hard to do what the guys did.
But being pushy, wasn’t part of my nature. I hated pitching; it felt so self-serving. I detested anything that smacked of manipulation. And I never was able to bring myself to use the trite closing techniques that my male colleagues claimed were so effective.
I was repeatedly told that I needed to “play with the big boys” and to “get in bed” with my customers. I learned that it was a “war” out there; that my competitors were the enemy and my job was to destroy them.
