Stay True To Your Beliefs with Salman Mohiuddin

Salman: "One thing that my faith teaches me is that after every difficulty will come ease. With every difficulty comes ease. Meaning that, you're gonna go through some tough times, guaranteed. No matter who you are. You've been through it, I've been through it I'm sure, in our life. But there's gonna be light at the end of the tunnel."
Salman: "If you do not have conviction and belief in what you're selling, if you don't believe that this is the best product in the market that you believe will solve your business challenges, customers will see value in it, if you don't truly have conviction and belief in what you're selling, you won't enjoy what you're doing, you won't be successful, and you won't be inspired to wake up every morning."
Salman: "As I was learning more about the product, as I was sitting down with customers, I felt, I don't know if I'm completely sold on this product. I don't know if I believe in this product. I don't know if I have conviction in this product, in what I'm selling. And I realized I couldn't be successful, I didn't enjoy what I was doing."
Salman: "Sales is about building a connection in some way. Sales is about uncovering business problems and helping solve them. And you don't need to chug down a couple of cold ones to do that."
