This weekend I watched the Iris Apfel documentary and I loved it. I love her.
She is not a sales person but part of me sees her as someone that sales people can learn from and relate to.
She is an odd duck but in an amazingly, funny way. I dig her.
She sells herself due to her personality and style. We can all learn something from that in sales. As a sales person you need to own your style, own who you are and what you are all about as a sales rep. If sales people were more interesting, more bold and more like their selves maybe companies wouldn't hate talking to us or being prospected by us as much. If you have a sense of style in your sales process you are likely to stick out and that is always a good thing. :)
Here are some quotes and things that stood out to me in her documentary that I thought apply to being in sales.
Or else why do it in the first place?
