  • 1. If you feel guilty about selling then don't be! Some people look down their noses at salesmen but what they need to realise is it is all well and good to make a great product but that great product has to be sold! Usually the person who talks about sales people with contempt depend on a salesperson for their paycheque (or paycheck as they say it in America)! A Quick Word on Price. On the internet there are a lot of free resources and there are some very good free resources but you will find the best resources require a price, even if it is small.
