I’ve always been a terrible salesman.  I used to get really worried about it.  “Everyone’s selling something,” the successful people said.  “Whether you’re selling yourself at a job interview or selling your personal brand to a client.”  They even said, “Maybe you’re selling an idea to your husband that he needs to take out the trash.”  It took me a long time to figure out what they meant by that.  And then one day, I finally figured it out: salesmen are fucking assholes.
