Let’s consider today the possibility that children may be the greatest salespeople the universe has ever known.
How is this possible?
- Kids are creative
- Kids are persistent
- Kids are enthusiastic
- Kids have positive attitudes
Do children EVER take no for an answer? NO, THEY DO NOT!
They just take “No” as “Not now” or “Not that way, find another way to ask.”
Wouldn’t you like to be able to bottle all of that energy, and upbeat, positive thinking and sprinkle it over yourself, your salespeople, and while you’re at it, all of your co-workers?
Try having a child-like demeanor at the office tomorrow, look at things with fresh, wondering eyes, look through the eyes of a child. See if you have any new ideas, a creative way to approach a recurring problem, or a refreshing alternative to a nagging issue.
And, DON’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!
Anyone who thinks the art of conversation is dead ought to tell a child to go to bed. ~Robert Gallagher
