If I ask you right now whether or not you are in sales, chances are you would say, “No, I’m in accounts payable or customer service or marketing.” You might even say, “I’m the CEO.”

No matter what your job is, you are in sales. Every time you interact with a customer, you are selling your professional credibility, the company’s products or services, and the company’s image. So, even if you don’t work in the sales department, read on.
