Learning How To Sell And Learning To Love It

By Rebecca David

 

I used to cringe at the word “sales” and the very thought of sales as a career choice terrified me.  In fact, the first time I stepped onto the sales floor, even for just a trial sale during training, I felt sick to my stomach; I stuttered, laughed nervously, and couldn’t think straight.  I’m naturally shy and reserved; although I’m not afraid of people, the idea of meeting new people every day and trying to encourage them to buy a product was far beyond my comfort level.  I also wondered how or why any customer would ever trust me, a 20-year-old college intern.  Despite my reservations, I decided to give sales a shot and toss my misconceptions out the window.

When I first started working at Blinds To Go, I didn’t think I was going to make it. The first day of work felt like the worst day of my life. I felt out of place and could not foresee myself ever being comfortable being on the sales floor and interacting with customers for 8+ hours. You see, I am on the quiet side of the personality spectrum. For some reason I thought because of this fact I would not be able to be a good salesperson (which as it would later turn out, couldn’t be further than the truth). One of the biggest things I came away with from working at Blinds To Go was a better understanding of the art of conversation.
