The profession of sales has just gone the way of all the others. Everyone today is a writer, a photographer, a networker, a sales pro … the real professions are being taken over by the masses.
But cream does rise to the top. Eventually.
Likewise all professions requires training - and the hucksters we see and feel are simply panicked people who have realized that nobody is going to promote them - they have to do it themselves … and they haven’t been trained in that art.
You won’t see or hear good sales people ‘in the networks’ … because that is not where they are.
The problem is also going to get worse.
The Future of Work is not the corporation - we are moving into the ‘everyone for themselves / survival’ stage.
But nobody is being trained or educated for that scenario.
