So you don't like sales? Well, you'd better start.
Grant Cardone, the author of "Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and Life," is this week's guest on Salary Talk and he sells sales -- and with good reason. Even those who don't think they are salesmen in their current jobs actually do sell, says Cardone. Every time you ask for a raise, go for a promotion or pitch a new idea to your boss, you're selling yourself. Sales is nothing more than getting someone to see your side, and that's an essential component of career success.
Cardone, who is also a TV and radio host, has some great explanations as well as tips to become a better salesman and enjoy more success in your job. Listen in to get a whole new perspective on sales and how it relates to your career.
