#015: The Importance Of Sales


“Sales is not a bad thing to focus on.  Sales shouldn’t be a way to get people to do something that they shouldn’t be doing.  You should have a product that you’re proud of, that you have a lot of passion for, and be providing value to people; and sales is just your way to get them over the mental roadblock to taking action.” – Jared Paul

Sales can sometimes be viewed with a negative connotation.  Not many people want to be called a “salesperson.”  But sales is one of the most important parts of any business, and a skill that can help accelerate your success.
