Now happily retired after 32 amazing years with Princess Cruises, I agree 100% with this article. Through mergers, acquisitions, 911, a recession that seem to never end, oh and did I mention a couple of wars, if you do not possess all or most of the bullet points in this article “what makes a good sales person” you will run a ground quickly. On the other hand even if you do possess 100% of the bullet points in this article, having a great boss helps to unlock all of your potential. Fortunately for me I did.
And don’t forget that a salesperson should be Friendly and Helpful.
Yes a good sales person having friendly nature
And helpful to everyone
