I am a salesman because I had to be, not because I wanted to be. Truth be told I hated sales when I got into it. I hear people say, “you are a natural salesman.” Wrong. I am the most unnatural sales person you would ever meet and hated sales the first eight years I was in it. At the age of 17 on my first sales job in a clothing store my card said, “sales associate” and I hated it.
