How to make your sales recipe work
Mostly all of us have tried to cook with the help of cookbooks, Youtube videos or specialized websites. We tried to follow the recipe strictly to mix ingredients all together and to get the result that we see on the picture or the one we expected it to be. Mostly if you try to do it for the first time you don’t get what you want and usually this result can disappoint you and you don’t want to continue practicing.
The same thing goes with sales. There is a basic algorithm you try to follow and think that you do everything right, but still, you don’t get the result which you were expecting. ales is an art as well as cooking is. You need to love the things you do and don’t cry over spilled milk, but continue practicing and mastering your techniques. This will help to show others that you are well competent in what you do and they will love to work with you as they will be able to see your professionalism.
