If you made a list of the top 5 hated professions today, Sales would probably be on the list right behind Lawyer and Politician. I think that’s weird because there aren’t many careers as fulfilling or lucrative as one in sales, and even fewer with so much autonomy and transferrable experience. So why does sales feel like a dirty word? Because it’s deceptively hard to be successful in sales, and too many unscrupulous salespeople have given the profession a bad name. It’s time to undo that damage. Let’s reclaim the profession so we can be proud to say we’re in sales. 

Each episode we’ll feature interviews with successful sales professionals who have mastered the ability to balance their own needs with those of the company. Real people who have figured out how to meet their sales goals and still sleep soundly at night. People who have discovered how to do their job with honor, confidence, and integrity.
