Working in sales is one of the most exciting jobs if you know how to do it. You have to be like a wave in the ocean, by which I mean that your working diagram should be like a jigsaw. You need to focus especially on the high selling points and flows due to economic changes around the world.

Before we get started, remember every day what Robert Kiyosaki says,”Most people never get wealthy simply because they are not trained to recognize opportunities right in front of them.”

Here you can find some tips for this ideal job.

Tips 1: Motivation is everything

You can find this saying almost everywhere because this is your first step for your live, job, family and so many. You have to be self-motivated day by day because you are the only one in this world who knows what is good for you.

First of all, you need to know who you are, and who you want to surround yourself with. Do you see, in sales, it is very easy to be on the top but also on the bottom. If you have the right key, you can be a master of sales. But how can you find it?

Let me tell you something: you can make your own path to success. Motivation is its name. In my case for example, when I’m doing sales, my motivation is that I know what I want to do after a good accomplishment. On my desk, at the office, I have written what St. Jerome once said, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.” I’m full of motivation after reading this cause, I know that this is my plan for sales, to do something better every time.

Tips 2: Why do I…?

This is a very good question for sales. Do you have an answer to “Why do I do sales?”. If not, give yourself some time to find a solution to this. Take things step by step. Many of us are doing sales for money because we now that there is a lot of profit involved. Only just some of us are doing this for our own pleasure.

In both cases it is ok to continue if you have that “why” answered. You have to know where you are heading, and what your ending goals are. In case you can’t find your answer, you must rethink your position. You could also check the internet for some real salespeople who focus on what buyers need. And if you know that you’re doing sales because you want to have a better lifestyle, a lot more possibilities will open up. And guess what? Once you found your motivation, some good money will follow.

Tips 3: Wake up before 6 A.M. every morning

Waking up before 6 A.M it sounds dreadful for most of us. But you have to know that you’re in the best shape if working early in the morning, and no later than the middle of the day. You have to find your perfect schedule forward? A notebook will really help you. Waking up in the early morning, drinking your coffee at the right time, and writing down your thoughts and goals for the day will help you a lot. Why? Because it will keep you structured and determined to work hard. Pursuing this type of working life will also help you find your “why.”

Tips 4: Have a break as often as you can

Having a break is good for you. Doesn’t matter if is a 30 minutes break between 2 sales or a 4 days trip in the mountains with your friend. These breaks make you feel completely relaxed and also satisfied because after some hard work, everyone should rest. You can recharge your batteries and take it again from the beginning. You have to know when you need to reward yourself because is something like a win-win situation for you.

Dan James, freelancer at a proficient essay service, shares his opinion. “Work hard some weeks, take a city break in which you can think about your next plans or simply relax, and go back to working hard again. You could also change your working time for productivity purposes – try changing from 8 to 6 hours or maybe less, depending on your efficiency.”

Tip 5: Knowing when to say thank you

We are doing a lot of things in this life but most often we forgot to say “Thank You” to us and to everybody who helped us. In sales, nothing happens without a reason. You could find a “why” in almost everything. And more often, we work with the same buyers so if you know to say at least “Thanks” to all of your customers, they will return. If not, they might change partners, and you might find it challenging to make them come back.


Working in sales is not the easiest job, but as long as you find your why, stick to your plans, and set the right goals, you are definitely on the right path.
