Post Your Best Sales Story Here!

Last Updated Jul 9, 2009 4:06 PM EDT

I recently wrote a story for SellingPower magazine (it's the June '09 cover story, in fact) about medical products sales reps. One guy I interviewed had his first selling experience in an Emergency Room while doctors were taking a machete out of a guy's chest. Great "bath of fire" story.

I was thinking about that anecdote when I realized that nearly every sales pro I know has a great story or two -- maybe about a crazy customer, a weird boss, a big win, a cosmic blunder, or something else entirely. This blog is well-read (actually it's getting absurdly popular), so I thought I'd offer you readers an opportunity to share.

Post your best story here. Don't worry about getting all literary; we're all "in the business" anyway. Just share whatever sales story comes to mind.
