Job titles don’t matter. Everyone is in sales. It’s the only way we stay in business. – Harvey Mackay

No sales, no business. It’s the most fundamental fact of commerce. However, Sales is often one of the most misunderstood and mismanaged aspect of business, despite its obvious and enormous importance.

Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust. – Zig Ziglar
