This is one of my favorite questions to ask. I ask it of myself, I ask it of my clients, I ask it when I am on stage speaking. I make sure that on a continual basis I am checking myself and making others aware of this. That question is, “Are you selling or are you closing?” See, sales in itself is such a wide topic. It is so broad and so deep, and there’s so many different sales trainings out there, so many different negotiation trainings, so many entrepreneurs, business owners, and sales professionals who are constantly seeking more and more knowledge on selling. I am going to share with you to absolutely, continually hone your sales skills, because it is that. Sales is a skillset. It is definitely a learned behavior.
