Sales is a critically important part of your business success.  In fact, it’s arguably the most important part. Most business owners have to learn to sell and position their products and services with blood, sweat and tears.  When they figure it out, they hold on to this part with tenacity and refuse to let go.  Meanwhile, there are others eager to hire someone to do the networking, relationship building and the endless calls to prospects.  Well, one of the most important hires you will make as a business owner will be the one that makes it rain (rain with money that is).
