How he says we are all salespeople is very true. We are all selling our lives and stories, we sell a lot of information to one and another. He says that we are also ambassadors 24/7 just as we are salesmen 24/7. This is a great aspect to use in your life it could be very helpful in your career by adding potential new customers and clients.

Saying that everyone is a salesperson is very true. No matter what job you have, you represent the company you work for. How you handle yourself and your attitude reflects on the company as well. If you are doing a poor job then people will notice and might not come back to that company. You should show people that you can handle and task and do a great job at it and that you can be reliable to that company. Everyone who is employed represents themselves and their company. first impressions are everything so make sure you give a good one!

I think it is a good idea to see yourself as an ambassador in your workplace. I really liked his statement of everybody who is in business is a sales person. I noticed this everyday at various older jobs I had. Working in a grocery store, I would often find while helping a customer find an item they needed, my input on what brand I thought was the best actually influenced them to buy that brand of what they were looking for. This video was an eye opener on how anyone in any workplace can be a sales person.
Totally agree! Everything at anytime represents yourself and the company you work for. I strongly believe that some professions shouldn't even do things when there not on the clock. Such as, doctors should not smoke or drink. If your suppose to be promoting health and safety then this is something you should not be seen doing. So I do feel that every aspect of your life is a representation of your company.

This is a true statement anyone can be a salesperson. The keying to selling is selling yourself and knowing the product. The key to sales is being confident and i believe that you are confident and take control of the situation that you and anybody can be successful at sales.

This is a very important video. I learned a great deal about this in my marketing class. Selling skills doesn't just mean you can convince someone they need a product, you need to be able to brand and sell yourself. It's also important to keep in mind who you represent on a daily basis. A customer's impression of a salesman can make or break a deal and permanently brand that company. I participated in a lot of personal selling and branding in my previous job as I dealt with managerial duties and customer needs. Building a good brand for your company through your actions builds respect and loyalty that is irreplaceable. This is also a constant duty, at any time someone could receive a positive or a negative impression.

Not sure how I feel about this one. Everyone is unique and has their own way of doing things and so to say selling themselves or services or whatever it is. But not sure that this video made me feel that everyone is a salesperson. Just didn't enjoy this one.
I agree with this video completely. Someone sees everything you do, no matter how little or big the action is. I like how he emphasizes that you are an ambassador for the company you work for. This reminds me of how companies often have policies about how an employees acts outside of the workplace. You are constantly representing your company. It also reminds me of the new things companies are doing: monitoring employees facebooks or other social media. At my current job, one of my coworkers was fired for something she put on social media about some people that she had interacted with earlier in the day. While I hated to see her go, I completely understood and agreed with the actions taken by management to remove her from her position.

You are always selling yourself no matter what. Whether to upper level management or customers or coworkers, there is a part of you that you are selling to them. Job interviews are perfect examples of selling yourself.
You are your own brand is very important. Not everyone realizes this and goes around making a fool of themselves. I think that once you realize that you are your own brand you soon try to develop that brand.
