Much like lawyers and politicians, many sales reps face terrible and all-too-common stereotypes about their chosen profession.

In fact, sales is full of creative, intelligent, and widely different people who believe strongly in the products they’re selling. So forget the bad toupee, the gold pinky rings and the cheesy sales lines – get ready to bust some sales myths.
