Top 10 Reasons Selling is Better than Sex

Yesterday's post about the sexy sales rep Debrahlee Lorenzana got me thinking. The men in the office should have been thinking about their jobs -- and making th...eir numbers -- rather than what Debbie was wearing. With that in mind, I thought I'd help them out by pointing out 10 good reasons that selling is better than sex. Here's my list:
  • Reason #10: If the sales launches a new product, you don't have to take care of it for 18 years.
  • Reason #9: You can talk about your sales wins on a blog and not get a letter from a lawyer.
  • Reason #8: A new customer won't get angry if you sell to another customer later that afternoon.
  • Reason #7: Zig Ziglar and Brian Tracy aren't nearly as creepy-looking as Hugh Hefner.
  • Reason #6: After you land a new account, there's never any pressure for you spend the night.
  • Reason #5: You can sell a dozen times a day and still be ready to sell some more.
  • Reason #4: If your kids find your collection of sales tools you don't have to be embarrassed.
  • Reason #3: With sales, there's nearly always somebody new and interesting involved.
  • Reason #2: Selling is as enjoyable over the phone as it is in person. Maybe even better.
  • Reason #1: Nobody complains if your sales process is completed in less than 60 seconds.
