There’s no doubt about it, salespeople are a busy bunch. From sunrise to sunset the main objective is to sell, sell, sell.

No matter what your profession, taking a step back and making some time for learning is difficult. But investing in learning can have so many benefits. It opens your mind to new ideas and perspectives, showcases creative examples from the industry and lets you grow and develop your career. Plus it gives you something to talk about if you get stuck in an awkward silence by the kettle.

So we’re in agreement that learning is good and we’d all like to do it. ‘BUT WHERE DO I GET THE TIME’ I hear you cry. And I will answer you like a mystic sensei; you must make time. Everyone has 30-40 minutes to spare during the day.
