Those are just some of the comments and/or answers received by our team here at SalesCoach2 each time we ask people about their movitivation for geting into sales.
A career in sales can help to increase your annual salary and quality of life, given the right personality, determination and skills. While it is true that "sales" is not for everyone, our entire team here at Atlanta based SalesCoach2 still believe that "sales is the engine that drives economic development". And yes, not every one in sales make a ton of money given the fact that some people are better at selling solutions, while some do a great job selling products. It is also true that the "risk" taking aspect of some sales jobs serves as a deterrent when deciding on a payment structure - salary vs commission or base salary plus commission or full commission. For instance, while a retail sales clerk (salaried) position may be restricted to earning in the range of US$8.50 - 9.50 per hour, a retail furniture sales associate working on full commision may earn between US$35,000 - 95,000 annually.
Results from a recent research completed by our team here at SalesCoach2 showed that while there are is a close relationship between income and quality of life, there are still some barriers that restrict earning potentials.
When all is said and done, our team here at SalesCoach2 want to encourage more people to get into some type of sales. This can be on a part time basis within a corporate and/or retail sales environment or through some type of entrepreneurial acitivity. We truly believe that one of the best ways to give yourself a quick raise or boost your income is to get involved in sales.
