I once read a saying from Mike Litman “If you don’t know how to sell, you will live on pay check to pay check hell”. I think that is a strong sentence he made regarding on how we make our living. Not everyone has the ability, talent or skill of being a businessman or not every one likes selling.He also said, it is the secret of millionaires.
It is very obvious that no employee will get rich because they are all in the mercy of their employers. So why I say that? Even the government can’t force employers to increase the laborers wages according to their wishes and the final say is always on the employers. When a worker is on his retirement age, he has to leave the company whatever great things he have done to his employers or the business itself. And the employer will just hire another younger employee to replace him. That is really unfair, but who says that life is fair? and those things will happen if you don’t know how to sell.
So what is the bottom line? what ever kind business you can think of, maybe starting to have one is the hardest part because you don’t know where to start. Whether how small it is or how ridiculous you thought it will be, what is important is to act now. Remember the quote from a Chinese philosopher Laozi? “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
