Everyone who earns a living does sales

To make a living, we must sell our service, whether selling:

  • Our services and expertise to a company in an interview to be an employee
  • Or selling our skill, creativity,  and productivity to keep our jobs, or get that promotion,
  • Or whether we sell our services as consultants to advise corporations or businesses,
  • Or we work independently and are offering our services to compete for contracts or sell products

in the end, it’s all marketing and sales.
