Two years ago I was reading thru some of my old journal entries and one theme I’d consistently stumbled across in my professional life was that most of the people whom I knew, loved, and respected … hated sales (and avoided sales people in general.) In fact, most didn’t want to be associated with selling anything, or they were envious of sales people (“My God do you know how much money he made for one deal?”) Others were terrified at the thought of being perceived as a “salesperson.”

Then it hit me – while companies are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars annually into sales training, who is training non-sales professionals who are doing the buying? Why is selling and buying so hard? What has been the impact of this in-congruence on businesses and families? Why not change the game? So I did… and began creating the But I Hate Sales™ Series of seminars and products with the inaugural seminar taking place on Thursday September 13that the Columbia Hilton in Columbia, Maryland.  Welcome to But I Hate Sales™
