I am willing to bet that the answer you give at parties to the question “what do you do” is actually completely different to what you actually do to be successful in your job.
My answer: “I’m a pharmaceutical rep. I sell drugs to pharmacies…you could say I am a legalized drug dealer. ”
What I really do: What I really do is more like what they do in the movie Inception than sales. I spend the majority of my day using my words to open the minds of really smart people. I make people see that they can and will achieve more. I get them to believe what was previously impossible is now possible, and that they can do it too.
It just happens that by doing that it generates more sales for my company and more success for my customers.
What do you really do?
