When you say the word salesman you automatically picture someone who is slimy and out to make money on you so as a business owner you reject the idea of being pushy because its just not your personality.
Reality is everything can and is sales....
If you are married right now then you know to be with your partner, you had to do some selling of yourself or if you ever went on an interview, then you know you had to present yourself in the best light possible and explain how that job would benefit by hiring you.
Most people dread selling anything or coming across as "salesy"
