Are you selling passion or selling laptops?
Are you passionate about the products you are selling? I am passionate about selling used and refurbished computers. I know that each sale is putting a laptop in the hands of someone who cannot afford to buy a new laptop. I also know that we are delivering more computers to schools and businesses within the same budget.
For many of us, computers are a way of access to work or school. It can also be a way to stay in touch with friends and family. It even can be a way to get news, play games, and watch TV.
Many of our global resellers are selling computers to customers that have no computer or no access to the internet, or both. This is known as the “digital divide.” My focus and our passion is closing the digital divide by putting computers in the hands of many who cannot afford to buy new.
Here are some ideas to think about if you are passionate about the products you are selling.
First, the passion I am talking about is not your hobby. I think your hobby should be something you do during the weekends.
Your Skills: These are important and can sometimes relate to your passion. Being great at something doesn’t always mean you’re passionate about it. Try not to focus all your energy on making spreadsheets (unless you enjoy doing that).
Ask yourself these questions
- What kind of work makes me happy?
- What type of work do I like to start and love finishing?
- Does your position give you a sense of accomplishment?
- Does time fly?
- You will work hard for it and do whatever it takes to accomplish it.
Finally, ask yourself what success will look like?
