Sales People, I Salute You
We need to spread the word that tomorrow is National Salesperson Day. It's always observed the second Friday in December.
I encourage you to just sit and think about it for a moment - how important sales people are to our economy. Granted sales techniques and methods have changed over the years, but without sales people, - nothing moves - and this country comes to a screeching halt.
I'll use the radio station as an example. Without our salespeople - who by the way are the absolute best I've ever worked with - there are no commercials, which means there is no paycheck for those of us behind the mic.
And without those commercials, merchandise in area stores doesn't move off the shelves; which then ultimately affects those who work at that particular business - and so on and so on.
It's the same thing in a factory setting; you can make the best widget in the world, but unless you have someone on the front line selling that item, they're nothing more than a paper weight.
So I encourage everyone to thank a salesperson tomorrow, whether they're in your office or in a store you're shopping at. Because without them, your life - and mine - would be pretty empty.
Thank you salespeople!
