If I asked you if you are a salesperson, you are more likely to say, “no, I’m a photographer or a chef or a graphic designer.” Many who own small businesses define themselves by their skill or talent, not the skills it takes to run a profitable business.

Learn everything from buildilng rapport to making a great sale to what happens after the sale to reinforce the buying decision and encourage referrals. Over the next few weeks we will be exposing you to industry leaders, favorite bloggers and stirring up conversations about fear and the “s” word.
