business with Sales
Nothing happens until you sell something
That’s a quote I once saw hanging on the wall at a big office. And it’s true. You will not create growth in your business (or for that matter, even have a business!) without sales. No matter how great your product is, how beautiful your logo is, how smart your website is or how wonderful your employee culture is – if you’re not selling, your business will cease to exist. Simple. And by the way, business growth is in itself one of the 7 Big Questions about how to build a beautiful business and life.
Sales is about skill, mindset and systems, but above all, it’s about making things easy for people. And that last word is the key to the whole shebang: it’s always about people.
What matters above all is that you remember that in small business especially, people do business with people they Know, Like and Trust. Your entire approach to sales must be built on a people-to-people philosophy and on building Trust.
