I used to see a career coach who told me that in order to get to where I wanted to be, I had to start from the bottom.
While I waited for folks to get on board and agree that I was the greatest thing since sliced bread – and pay me handsomely for my opinions and presence – I had to get a job.
And since I was transitioning from law to tech, I should use my gift of gab in an area that he thought would be a natural fit: sales.
The thing about his advice, while 100% accurate – I can sell – was the fact that I hate selling.
Well hate may be a bit strong.
I dislike it greatly.
And it’s not the act of selling that I dislike. I am a hunter.
It’s the things I have to sell that I generally dislike.
