If any of you are fans of The Apprentice or similar you'll know that Lord Sugar places a great deal of emphasis on people's ability to do sales. Yeah, I know the programme is a bit daft but it's entertaining, so I enjoy watching it.
Anyway, he insists that you have to be able to SELL to make money. Well, yes, I agree up to a point. Unfortunately, sales is not in my skill set - nor is it in Dave's (my husband and colleague). Sometimes I've even considered hiring a sales person or outsourcing this task in some kind of way.
I can do lots of things and so can Dave, but we're running a business with this huge gap in our skill sets. Maybe you don't think it matters. Maybe some of you think you can make good money online without being able to sell. I really don't know. I think I might do a bit better if was good at selling...
Mind you, I had to run a stall at a car boot sale once and despite my initial fear (yes, fear!) I was soon in my element chatting up the punters and flogging stuff like there was no tomorrow.
So, can you sell? And how much does it matter?
