      Thanks for the message. Read your link. Some good points about the benefits of being in sales.

      As I read your article, I was reminded of the fine book by Daniel Pink “To Sell is Human”. (http://www.amazon.com/To-Sell-Is-Human-Surprising/dp/1594631905)

      He makes the point that we are ALL in sales, although only about 1 in 9 people carry the title of “sales”.

      Thanks again for your comment.
