Sales Dot Oh

 

 

Sales isn’t for anyone. Whether it be retail, commercial, residential real estate, or even various forms of corporate sales, a career in such a demanding field isn’t ideal for most who are even in it. Some of the best looking men and women from around the world work in some kind of sales since the general population is attracted to attractive people. But what gets a business or even a person involved in purchasing something they specifically need in their personal and/or professional life? How does a real sales person coerce a potential client or customer into buying a product or service of any kind?

 

Many people go through many years of extra schooling to learn how to sell. Selling is the most difficult career to have, for it involves patience of others. Many self-made multi-millionaires and billionaires have had numerous books printed in regard to having a career in sales. What most people fail to understand, is that some of the best sales men and women have created their own brand within themselves, in other words, they were practically born with it!

 

For most persons, sales of some kind was their first job as a youth and most took that experience into adulthood. Some people become successful in sales while most are just in that career merely because, they “needed” a job at the time, only to become miserable! Many college and university graduates have obtained corporate types of sales jobs upon graduation; but that degree doesn’t make the business major a good seller!

 

Sales requires a certain type of intelligence, humility, listener, friendly, and honest thinker. Not all ideal sales persons have to be a supermodel type! Just because a man or woman looks attractive to others, doesn’t mean they know how to realistically close a business deal. Selling also requires that people have a genuine smile showing their good teeth, clean appearance, and must have excellent hygiene. No potential customer would ever want anything to do with a person who has dandruff, sour body odor, and halitosis! How well does a sales persons listen to the needs of a client they’re trying to close a deal with and can thoroughly come up with the precise solution for what they do to make it apply?

 

Many business persons who’ve been receiving investments from companies in other parts of the world, have learned to speak and understand other languages other than their native tongue. This is also a sales tactic to consider if a person or a company is trying to generate successful leads. Some of the best business deals for certain successful start-ups, are those who’ve learned how to verbally communicate in another language as well as learn their culture so that they can apply what they do to them.

 

Business intelligence has changed in the past several years and it will continue to change for various needs based on the needs of the mass population of their community or even country. Good sales tactics and tricks are not taught in higher education course; they’re learned by personally observing one’s own surroundings. Whether a person is from a small town or metropolis, selling to just about anyone isn’t possible. Some people are better at sales in communities they weren’t raised because they took on a challenge to accomplish a greater task, where as some stayed within their home area.

 

How well does a sales person know their products for sale? How many real estate agents truly know about a home they’re trying to sell if they never built it themselves? What about car sales people; how many of them have actually worked on vehicles or even built one? How well does a retail sales associate know about what clothes and shoes looks on various body types and the colors that look best verses what’s in season? What kind of office space is needed for companies of a certain size? How well does a software sales person know about the programming that went into building it when they didn’t put it together? There are so many questions that have and will continue to rise, especially, very respectively.

 

In all truth, most persons need to reconsider that a career in sales just isn’t a good professional fit for them since they’re somewhat anti-social or even lacking patience. Good sales persons have love for all people in their heart and mind. They’re always very honest in their decision making skills. They are also very direct, straight to the point, don’t bullshit!

 

Sales people are likened to bartenders, therapists, and even hair stylists. All these people have to come up with a plan, to make sure you leave their presences content and extremely happy! A good bartender may offer a suggestion of wine over a beer or even liquor based on what they notice in a customer’s mood. A hair stylist will suggest that the recipient try something daring such as a short spiked haircut with different colors. A therapist will offer assistance in a person’s life to make them feel joyful instead of depressed. A sales person of any kind, will offer up not just any package deal, but a client base to keep them satisfied, returning for the newest product or service they’re being presented with. Even when it comes to B2B, a person from a certain particular company can still offer something to a customer that they wouldn’t normally accept their business.

 

So what can be said about how sales is being done today? Sales comes in all factors of life. Some people are meant to be in that career path while others, it’s not meant for them in the end. You can sell anything to anyone, but it takes the right sales man and/or woman to be able to sell a product or service to ANY customer who will never say, “I want my money back”.

“Mistakes Women Make”

 

 

I’ve mainly had male friends ever since I was a child. I notice that MOST women read and believe what they see in so-called magazine advice columns and listening to certain dating coaches. There’s a reason why many women are so desperate to be with a partner and can’t, and those who are in relationships are miserable. What are the mistake women have come to believe?

There’s a generalization that I’ve come to learn about men of various racial heritage. It’s MOSTLY accurate in my observances.

White male: Into big breasts on women majority of the time and if not, prefer extremely skinny as the idea of beautiful. A preference for plain and simple looking.

Black male: Into full figured women with the highest rate of into big butts. No matter rich or poor, they tend to go for women heavily into clothes and jewelry.

Hispanic males: prefer more fully figured women but depending which country of origin, the overall preference can and will vary

Asian males: MOSTLY prefer extremely petite and skinny women.

Men who are of numerous ethnicities will vary overall in the type of women they date or become friends with (female friendly gay man). Depending on which racial makeup they are either raised amongst or around in general will determine their preferred female.

 

The biggest problem today, is that no matter what ethnicity a man is, they’ve become just as much glued to their mobile phones as women, either to play games all the time or generally looking up even the slightest information. REAL men do allow their eyes to be taken away from their phone, but it takes a good woman to keep them physically engaging! Younger males nowadays are obsessed with texting instead of making phone calls as they used to, all while the majority are socially awkward because of this behavior. Young people are prone to find someone to date and have sex with from a “dating” app or website than from merely meeting initially in person.

Why are SOOOO many people miserable in their current romantic relationship or constantly dating life? People have allowed the media industry to dictate how they should date, look, and live outside of their comfortable means. Whether people admit it or not, usually they won’t, they chase after something that just isn’t ideal for their own self. MOST women are obsessed with wearing so much caked on cosmetics, but the reality is that good men, don’t like any of that! No matter the ethnicity of men, a good man despises whenever women wear excessive makeup! They prefer natural beauty with a happy smile!

The other REAL problem with women nowadays, is their attitude! Just because a woman has a nice figure, expensive clothes, and wears a lot of makeup, doesn’t mean she will have a good attitude. Most women who look that certain way, always appear to be angry and miserable in public, and that’s a fact – look around! Most women have subjectified themselves to stupidity and vanity rather than with intelligence. A true good man, will take intelligence and simplicity over “beauty” and stupidity any day, but that’s rare anywhere! Whenever a woman puts a lot of make-up on, she’s hiding not only who she really but her personality as well.

There’s nothing wrong with a woman identifying as a heterosexual feminist. Women have lost respect from men in a subtle manner from this newer idea of being a dominate feminist. When a woman is on a romantic date, the man is supposed to pick-up the whole tab and she is to teach him restraint from demanding sexual activity of any kind especially if it’s a new thing. When a woman is on a friendly date with a man, it’s OK for her to pay half or have him pay the whole tab, all while being mutual with one another. Women nowadays immediately ask for a man’s phone number. I don’t do so, and have told men who said they’ll give me their contact initially, “I don’t call (and/or text) a man first.” Some men were upset when I told them that, and only some have accepted that I taught them a certain set of manners! If a woman wants to dominate a man, she should teach him to respect her by educating him to have some good manners and not be stubborn about it, be in control! Men who’ve allowed themselves to be “controlled” in a subtle manner by the women they’re with, are more likely to be happier in life than those who continue to dominate “weak” women.

Women who continue to chase men ONLY for their wealth, will never be honestly happy in life. A good majority of the women from around the world have become materially selfish. True love isn’t about the biggest diamond a woman gets, she’ll never be happy deep inside her soul. “Gold-digging” women are generally numb and secretly miserable. Love isn’t about the money a man gives to a woman who refuses to work hard on her own. Most of the honestly happy women in the world are not extremely materially wealthy, but are those who’ve made their own personal financial success, even if it means they’re barely getting by with their housing and bills.

Some key things for women to remember:

Don’t initiate into a romantic relationship with a man.

Don’t get his contact first, give him yours!

Don’t hide behind a ton of make-up.

Learn to be financially independent.

Learn to have intelligent conversations.

Be simple.

Smile and show some teeth when doing so.

 

All it takes is to bring back the simpler things in life and not be in excess.

“Women in Tech: How Box Showed Diversity”

 

 

It’s been well over a week since Box Works ended for the 2016 year. I thought that I give it some time for people who attended and those who were unable to, grasp onto something that I caught on to.

The opening keynote for this year was by the CEO of Box, Aaron Levie. Not only did he give his own introductions for the company’s new products and services, but he also had mostly women on his panel that lasted a little over two hours in all. When it came to presenting new products from within the company and others, Aaron had mostly women demonstrate how the services are to operate. He even had a fireside chat with a woman from Google. I am impressed!

Now, I post this in time for major tech conferences such as Oracle Open World (OOW) and Dreamforce. All of these tech and business conferences happen in San Francisco, California in the brain of Silicon Valley.

As an attendee of tech events for the past five almost six years, I have seen that from the early days, there weren’t many women who were actively participating while in attendance. There was a lack of gender equality in which most women were initially afraid to enter into the male dominated industry. What most people don’t know is that the main founders for Box and Oracle are males who didn’t even finish college!

So there are women scheduled for various panels during OOW. Will that be enough to make other women interested to join the enterprise tech industry in non-secretarial roles? What was impressive at Box Works this year, is seeing women being able to give stutter-free presentations and talks about products for the work place. Some of the women were nervous, but most of them definitely had confidence in tackling gender inequality in tech.

Younger women nowadays have it much easier to enter the tech industry. My older female colleagues have been around long enough to have endured the pain of an industry they were bullied around in.

Women do know how to program. They know how to decipher what a glitch or other computer software issues happens to be and solve them immediately. Women can easily talk to a crowd of predominately men to showcase how something works. Sometimes it takes a good man to give women opportunities. In any case, women have proven to be dedicated and harder workers at what they do. Women are perfectionist and in the tech industry, it’s all about perfection.
