Ever feel like you're saying something but the other person just isn't quite understanding?
In sales, you’ll learn there are 4 basic types of people, and everyone is a combination of these four.
😃 Amiable: These people want to share their life story with you (AKA small talk works with these people).
😁Expressive: These people use a lot of descriptive words and see the big picture. They’re the dreamers.
🤔 Analytical: Analyticals need to understand everything, and they ask a lot of questions.
🤨 Driver: Drivers are no-nonsense. They want details and for you to map out every little thing from A to Z. They want to go straight to the negotiation.
Sales will teach you how to quickly identify which type a person is and adapt your pitch to the way they prefer.
Want to be a chameleon in any environment? Direct sales is the answer.
Which one do you tend to lean more towards?

Its become too easy to give up. What if we viewed the tough times as opportunities to test our perseverance? Push past self-doubt. You've got this.
How often do you stop and give yourself permission to think? Not to think about what's next on the to-do list or what's the next highest priority activity, but giving yourself permission to think about what you're grateful for? On this 4th day of July, as a nation, we have so much to be grateful for.
"Walking through the White House on our regional payoff trip was a very humbling and exciting experience ... to see the place where our great democracy is run - that provides the country that we get to live in and create the lives we want with the people we love! I'm grateful to run a business in America where we have the freedom to work hard, create opportunities for others, impact our local communities and build future leaders in all industries!" - Jake Dougherty, District Manager (Grand Rapids, MI)
"I love being able to represent something that is quality and in the same instance helping to build the US economy." - Will Bond , District Manager (Macomb, MI)
"I’m INCREDIBLY grateful to run a business in America because it’s freedom in its purest form. We have the ability to be entrepreneurs and dictate our own worth. I am SO proud that we are one of a few companies that have an American made product for the past 70 years!! Our owners take pride in that and so do I!" - Jeff Bry , Midwest Region Manager
🇺🇸What's ONE thing you're grateful for today?🇺🇸
⚾"T-ball" and "life lesson" don't typically go together. How about this one though ...⚾
"When we show up, we give ourselves the opportunity to make a great play. And if you don't, you're always going to be out." - Evan Keller, Vector Division Manager
Step up to the plate today. Tag a fellow t-ball teammate for old times sake.

Selling gets a bad rap, but it shouldn’t… and it doesn’t from millionaires like Mark Cuban and actors like David Walton. And that’s because, like it or not, life is sales.💥 Remember when you tried to talk your parents into staying out past curfew?
You were selling them. And remember when you tried to talk your teacher into rounding up that B+ to an A?🤔🤔 Again, you were selling.

A study by The Chronicle of Higher Education asked employers specifically what they were looking for in new college grads.
Only one of the top five priorities they listed related to candidates’ academic experience, even though this study was focused solely on new graduates who have yet to take a full-time job.

You're your biggest critic. (1) determine what you could do better (2) do that next time (3) focus on progress not perfection.
Employers value professional experience over a college degree.👔 In 2011, 21 million students enrolled in colleges across the U.S. yet only an estimated 2 million (14%) completed an internship. 😮
📣So the question is ... "this summer, should I be looking for an internship AND resume experience? A paid-position? Or a little of both?"🤷♀️

“The one detail of a handwritten note is just as important as the item, whether you're sending Cutco or custom leather goods or a Rolex. I don't care what you're sending, the note is just as important." - John Ruhlin (#1 Cutco Sales Rep of all time)
John Ruhlin is the #1 sales rep in the 70-year history of Cutco, with over $8.5 million in personal sales.

An internship used to be the ultimate resume trophy. Which is why ninety-one percent of companies expect job seekers to have one or two internships on their resume.
But not just any internship… a paid internship.
While 63.1 percent of students with a paid internship under their belt received at least one job offer, only 37 percent of former unpaid interns could say the same.
So is working for free one summer worth it? Good question. We know one thing is for sure.
People who are worth more get paid more. At any given time—student or not—your current income is an indicator of your value in the marketplace.
Our vote = gain experience WHILE making money. How? Try sales. You'll always be selling. Start here.

By 2020, 43 percent of the U.S. workforce will be freelancers.
Freelancer? Yep, basically working a part-time craft around your day job to earn extra income. There are (a lot) of people you know right now that already do this. And if they are your age and/or competing for the same job as you? They’re going to be hard to beat.
The old days of getting paid for just looking busy are about to be gone forever, as more organizations shift to being remote-based and results-driven.
Making sales is easy when you have a good product. It’s the self-discipline and self-motivation that many students lack.
