Power of Pride in Sales & Advertising

No matter who you are or where you come from, your opinions about sales can be divisive. Often met with disdain and skepticism, individuals in this field find themselves defending their choice of profession. “You’re the obnoxious guy that calls me the second I fill out a form online,” they say. It’s a common sentiment that can leave professionals questioning their path.

Embracing Change: A Personal Journey

Reflecting on my early days in sales back in ’09, I used to introduce myself as “the guy who called you out of the blue.” Admittedly, I lacked pride in my work, merely going through the motions to keep a job. Unsurprisingly, my results mirrored my lack of enthusiasm, marking me as the worst salesman at the company for a staggering 91 days.

It was a turning point when I discovered the transformative power of taking pride in my work. As I embraced this newfound perspective, my fortunes changed, propelling me from the bottom to the pinnacle of success within the company and beyond.

The Elation of Entrepreneurship

In 2016, I took a leap and opened my own business. The moment captured in my memory is still vivid – the elation of securing a deal entirely on my own. It was a confirmation that someone valued what I had to offer, a feeling that transcended financial success. The satisfaction of knowing I had built something valuable became the driving force behind my work.

Walking into a new client’s space and witnessing their success mirrors my own journey. It transports me back to the days when I shifted from being the worst salesman to the best. In those moments, derogatory comments about my profession fade away because I understand the joy and relief experienced by the client.

Beyond Stereotypes: The Impact of Sales and Advertising

Critics may belittle sales and advertising, but I’ve witnessed firsthand the profound impact it can have. It has been the catalyst for providing stability to my family, covering rent, fixing broken cars, facilitating cross-country moves, and affording vacations that once seemed reserved for the privileged. Sales and advertising saved my life in more ways than one.

As a salesman, I recognize the pivotal role I play in keeping the gears of industry turning. It’s a responsibility that extends beyond business transactions, touching on jobs, marriages, politics, and the freedom of thought. Far from a hindrance, I proudly serve my family, fellow man, and country through the invaluable work of sales and advertising.
