You Manipulator, You

Have you ever said to yourself, “I don’t like doing sales because they leave me feeling… pushy, slimy, sleazy, manipulative…” etc.? When you’re doing sales, do you experience them as something that doesn’t feel good – to you or the person you’re selling to? This is very common, and it’s one of the main reasons that I teach sales.
