Earning Money Is Never Easy, I've Truly Understood That Now; COMEX 2014

Day 2 of Comex 2014.  It has been quite some time since I ended my Internship, experiencing the life of a full time working employee. As such, I was completely unprepared for Comex to be honest.

The commission of selling $100+ items works about to roughly $0.50-$1/ item. I had to talk and talk until my mouth was parched and my throat was unbearably painful just to close a few sales.

The life of a salesman is simply not easy.

Having the ability to talk fluently to customers and being able to have full product knowledge with one day of training that lasted 3 hours is vastly impossible. As such, promoters mostly pick up knowledge during the job itself, and many times we give wrong information to our customers either knowingly or unknowingly in an effort to make more sales.

Such is human nature, because we all see $ as king. You will truly understand this when you experience it for yourself.

I urge everyone to try a sales job at least once for the experience. You need to be good to persuade your customers. If you keep silent and stand at a corner you'll lose out :) This applies to life as well. Especially if you're in the customer service line.
