Let’s face it: almost anything can cause stress. Stressors are different
for each person, and they can be positive or negative. There’s no doubt about
it – selling can be a very stressful profession. There is pressure to prospect,
sell, service, deliver, and make your numbers – and still try to balance your
personal life and sales career. How can you cope? Plan your work and work your
plan. Set achievable, not impossible, goals. If you can, delegate tasks to
other people and concentrate on what you do best – selling. Remember that if
there’s a problem with a customer, it’s not personal; it’s just business.
