Thoughts on Selling
I don't know how it started but the career in selling never attracted me. I wanted an office job and an office job I got. The images of tindera's and maglalako's are not the usual images for a lucrative career, right? I also find it hard to dissociate lying with selling. I don't want to be another mambobola. And I hate faking a smile!
Nevertheless, I have admired some people who have made selling part of their lives. There's a former office-mate who had/has a stall for poultry products in Nepa QMart. There's another friend who have been selling almost anything from t-shirts to balloons and cellphone loads. Last year she bought a car. A current office-mate is selling street food like fishballs and kikiam while another has a burger joint.
I read a self-help book that explains that there should be no shame in selling. In the current time, the book added, we can no longer rely on regular salaries. Long gone are they days where people can rely on their retirement benefits. With everything that has been happening, I seem to understand.
But I know nothing about selling...
But the best way to learn how to do something is to actually do it. I'm opening myself to learn from my mistakes because I'm sure I will make one or more. So somewhere out there in the world wide web, a doll is being sold. (It's not a doll you've seen here.) And I don't want to sell dolls for life. I hope I can sell something bigger someday. It's just a start.
