Let’s face it…sales is one of the toughest jobs of being a retailer. This is especially true if you are the only one running the business, and the thought of “sales” feels very unnatural and uncomfortable for you. Many entrepreneurs don’t like the idea of “selling” to their customers, and if you are one of them, then you don’t have any other choice but to get over it and start embracing it as part of your career.
There are a few possible reasons why many retailers detest or avoid the idea of selling. Many entrepreneurs don’t want to be associated with the word “salesman” as it stirs up negative connotation for most people.
