I am Franco Chavez, a Peruvian student from Lima on the Associate Degree Program at the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA), Los Angeles, CA. I always asked myself why there were so many salesmen that couldn’t sell or why there were so many salesmen that have this superficial interest in you because deep inside they are thinking of something else? At least a couple of times, I’ve encountered some salesman in such a bad mood that I felt sad about it. While doing this apprenticeship, I realized that it really is hard, if not impossible, to sell a product that you have no interest in. If all these salesmen had at least some minimal interest in what they were selling, their jobs would be so much easier. From the very first moment my apprenticeship supervisor told me about Vibrant Life as a site for my sales apprenticeship, I was very interested. I like all subjects about nutrition and exercising. So I had good affinity with the product. The vitamins and creams were a great product for me to sell, because I knew that by selling them I was in some way helping the buyers to improve their health. So I personally think that these two ingredients are basic to getting a sale: 1) interest or affinity in the product you are selling and 2) interest in the person that you are selling the product to. This is applicable to anything that you want to sell. The HCA is a self-paced business school that offers an exceptional business administration curriculum, unique learning technology, life-changing apprenticeships and internships, assistance with job placement and a lifetime warranty for students. I am currently on the Marketing Apprenticeship.
