1) Customer service you don't want your customer feeling like you took advantage of them.
2) Understand what it is your trying to sell research it, read up on it.
3) Sales people have to be able to take rejection and keep going (LOOK FOR THE YES)

THERE ARE MANY EXCELLLENT WAYS TO BUILD A CUSTOMER BASE- THE CLIENT BOOK IS GREAT BUT IT IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS ACCEPTING WHO YOUR CUSTOMER IS AND WHO SHE WANTS TO BE. SHE IS A TOURIST AND YOUR THE GUIDE- YOU CAN NOT GUARANTEE HER TRIP TO BE SUCCESSFUL BUT BY WATCHING HER EYES AND LISTENING YOU CAN ALMOST KNOW WHAT HER NEEDS AND GOAL ARE THAT WAY.

Balassimo is correct! You have to find out what your customer's needs and desires are, so ask questions to better know how to help your customers.

Darling Debbie,
I wish you well :)
It sounds like you have a great attitude! It does not matter what happened in the past; today is your PRESENT! It is a gift (a present for you, lol!). And there is ALWAYS hope! With a positive attitude and the willingness to do some work, you can do anything your heart desires. You wrote that you did not have very much education, and that you are now 36. It is never too late for education. Contact someone in your community to find out about adult learning centres. Adult learning centres are a great way to learn new skills in a welcoming environment. Good Luck to you, here is a shooting star ~* Make a wish :)
