Thanks for the reply and the positive reinforcement.
But I have to disagree with you on the above point. Yes- its ethical
to believe in your own services and products. But thats not a necesity.
I've been conned by a lot of slick salesmen who personally would never use their own products- from cell phones, to ISPs, computer dealers, books, hell! even personal development guys!.....in fact from what i've seen the best
salemen , defining a good saleman as someone who can sell the most, are the guys who are slick, have word power, who seem to have no conscience, can lie with a straight face and whatnot.
Guys like me, who concentrate on giving value, really searching for people who need your products, will never be able to measure upto a guy whose sole focus is selling and just getting money by any means possible.
That sucks- something that I hate
- but I've realised that thats the reality. What matters is not products/services but pure marketing/business system.
