Hear hear Joe, beautifully articulated. I’ve heard you touch on this topic before but this completed it.
I completely agree, could not have been better explained.
I had a very similar conversation about design and was told over and over again that design is not as important as the academic subjects that children study. As someone who loves design I pointed out the fact that whether you love or hate design we’re surrounded by something that was designed by someone. It’s all to make life easier for others.
I think when people become SO accustomed to doing something they often forget that they even do it and like you said that goes for selling and being sold to.
Joe, you had to get the “Carpet” in there… for a moment, i thought you’d miss throwing that in. I must say, you are right on the money with this. In fact the biggest sale I ever made was was get my girl to marry me.
Great collection of arguments in 3 minutes (fired off in Machine Gun fashion so no reasonable selling-hater survives :p). You should write a book about selling, capitalism,… and market it really well!!
Keep sharing, thanks for all the great free info!
Best definition I’ve ever heard on Selling, awesome work Joe,
