When you’re looking to sell your products or services, it’s not the head of your customer that you’re trying to win. Instead, you’re trying to win their hearts. What’s the best way to do this? By telling a story that has your client or customer demanding to work with you.
Dale Carnegie came from humble means but he was driven to be and do more. He completed high school and went on to college, but in that time he learned all about the art of selling. He’d always been an influential speaker and he realized that it was his ability to speak that helped him become an in demand salesperson.
