Selling 101

Selling 101


Selling 101 will help you reinvent yourself

  • Are you someone that didn’t choose to go to college?
  • Did you not go because you didn’t have the money?
  • Your family didn’t have the money?
  • Are you someone that didn’t do well in high school and told you wouldn’t amount to anything?
  • You are smart and intelligent and know that you are more than what others think you are?

These are only some of the questions that I could ask you.  The point is you think you have few options.  You might be stuck in a low paying job, making minimum wage with no option for advancement.

Do you feel Lost & Alone?

Scared that your life won’t turn out how you

pictured it?

Or maybe you didn’t really have a vision for your life and are just taking it as it comes.  For you there aren’t many options.  You can work at McDonalds, or Burger King.  You might work in one of those quick oil change places.  You may only see yourself earning $25, 000 to $35,000 a year if you’re lucky.

Are you thinking there’s no way out?  Are you thinking what the hell is the use?  Have you thought why should you try harder and try to prove yourself when you can’t see down the road to a future that is bright with hope?

Have you given up hope?

Don’t give up.  It’s not your fault that you find yourself in this position.  It’s not your fault that you only qualify for the low playing jobs that have the most competition because there are so many people like you that are in the same place.

Today is your Lucky day!

I have been where you find yourself today.  I didn’t want to go to college, I was done with school.  It turns out that what they teach you in school is all good enough for learning the basics, like reading, writing and arithmetic.  But what if you don’t want to be a scientist, or a biologist or a computer programmer, or whatever the career of the day happens to be?

What happens to those that don’t fit into those career paths?  What happens when you don’t want to work as an auto mechanic or a fast food worker?  Where do you turn when the career options seem so limiting to you?

The solution is to learn how to sell.  What they don’t tell you in school is that everyone needs to know how to sell.  EVERYONE!!

I have heard so many people say to me and others, “I’m just not a salesman!”  and then they go on to tell you and anyone that will listen about how they’re not a salesman.  They will list the reasons why you should buy their reasons why they can’t sell.

  • I don’t want to lie to people just to get them to buy something from me.
  • I’m not good with people.
  • I don’t know how to talk with people
  • I don’t know how to convince people
  • People don’t trust salespeople
  • I don’t want to work for commission only
  • I don’t want to cheat people

You have heard all of this and more.  They are selling you on why they don’t want to sell.  And they are doing a damn good job of it as well. They are passionate about not selling and they are really selling hard on not selling.  They are doing such a good job that everyone around them is buying what they are selling.  Now if they could just monetize that product.

The Wolves of Yellowstone

This video is amazing and should be seen by everyone that cares about sustainability.  This is such a poignant story that has shown the clear benefits of re-introducing the wolf back into Yellowstone Park.  What a story.


Peak Performance on Line

Peak Performance on Line

I have finally decided to get this blog going and to start putting some of the things that I am working on out in the public domain.  I no longer wish to remain anonymous and keep my ideas, products, enterprises and ventures hidden.  It is with the full light of day that they will either flourish or die. And in either case that will be ok with me.

Peak Performance on Line is a new business for us.  The us being my wife Kathy and me.  It evolved from a business that we already started called Equine Peak Performance.  This new site started out being about Equine Health, which is fairly obvious, and there are a couple of products that are designed for dogs.

But then I started thinking about other things, which had mostly to do with me and some of the health and fitness issues I am being faced with now that I am no longer clinging to my youth.  I’ve had a couple of scares this year and have been faced with personal problems with health and with fitness that I never thought I would have to face.

Peak Performance has one meaning for all intents and purposes but that definition changes with time.  When I was in my twenties, I never gave it a thought.  I was bullet proof and there was nothing that could stop me.  The truth of the matter is that I am now paying for some of the decisions I made in my twenties that at the time didn’t seem foolish at all.  The cost for me today is starting to rear it’s ugly head.

The other side of the equation is that both my parents are alive, and in case you didn’t get a gander at my handsome mug, I am no spring chicken.  So guess what.  The folks are shall we say “elderly”?  Yeah, dad is 89 and ma is 88.  They are dealing with their own issues which I won’t go into here but suffice it to say, their issues have made me become much more aware of my own mortality.  At first it was somewhat scary, then it became a real eye opener, and then I decided to use them as my own cautionary tale.

So these events around my life and that of my parents has made me think much more deeply and seriously about what life means to me and how I can maximize whatever time I have left on this planet in terms of health and accomplishment.  Hopefully the two go hand in hand.

Therefore, I will be posting about what progress and achievements I make, the failures, the trial and error, the solutions and the products that have and will become a part of the ongoing journey.

Peak Performance is about the products, the lifestyle, the conditions and the motivations that for me will define those two words going forward.  I hope you join me in my journey, and that I can have some effect on your life, to motivate you to be all that you can be.

As always, please leave comments here to join the conversation.

More Later.
