I hope mine isn't too off-topic - I was inspired by Peg's hub and loved how she used real examples from her career. It made me think 'hold on, I have worked in retail for years, what advice could I share?'
Are you kidding? Sales skills DEFINITELY fall under the category of business skills, and it's awesome that you're drawing on personal experience. That's the best way to go!
I love the advice you've shared and all the original images you've used. They really do add authenticity to the Hub, which is big, because a lot of business-related guides online are written by people who don't really know what they're doing.
You know, with that in mind, I might even recommend mentioning your experience somewhere in the first text capsule to let readers know right away that you have had real experience and really know your stuff
I just saw my name and did a double take! Wow. Thank you for that and I read your article and it was fabulous and I think, right on target for this inspirational topic and the challenge. If retail sales improved then it might improve the economy, Right? Hooray!
Great advice: "Don't be lazy in learning." I wish I could count the times my co-workers have scoffed at the idea of taking a course or learning something new. They say, "is it going to cost me money?" or "I don't have any time," or "I'm too old to go back to school..."
This was a really fun topic. I haven't tried these inspiration hub ideas before, but I think I'll have to try it again in the future. I ended up wrting a hub I wouldn't have wrote otherwise, but I really enjoyed doing it.
This hub may change my mind about personality tests...We have a running joke in my family of when my son took an assessment test to find out what type of career he should have and one of the top answers was "River Boat Captain". He has no desire to have anything to do with bodies of water. I still sometimes refer to it and call him "Captain". Yet, as I think about it, he is his own boss and works outside...hmmm
farmloft- Thanks, yes sometimes it is hard to escape from the office and be with the staff; but I have worked with managers who have made it into an art form- Putting video clips in is easy- though I have not tried making my own videos yet!
