A few bad apples spoil the bunch. Have you heard that saying before?
Here’s the problem. We’re the rotten apples that this saying is talking about! In the world of sales, we’ve taken too many liberties with our buyers. Quite frankly, we’ve treated them like dirt. Although this isn’t entirely all our fault, the sheer fact that we’ve participated and gone along with this way of doing things has put us here.
Again, I’m not blaming YOU per se… I’m blaming the ENTIRE system. We’re all part and parcel of this wonderful sales industry. But, why is it that buyers want to escape us? Could it be that we’ve been too disrespectful of their time and space? As my friends in Minnesota would say, “You betcha!”.
