Niraj is forthright on salespeople becoming irrelevant and he is on a mission to change this. Most people are not aware that they work in sales, he says. Sales are the foundation of a business, if you do not sell you cannot invest. Buyers have become savvier, while sellers have not! Salespeople try to sell by email. People buy people and this involves a conversation. The problem is salespeople don’t answer questions, they do not research their client and they do not listen enough. Listen to the discussion to discover what needs to change.

Niraj says, “I was lucky I grew up with a strong mother and Grandmother and have a strong daughter. I gravitate to their intelligence and I’m not intimidated by Women. It doesn’t scare me like I know it does many men. Many men cannot work for women as it hurts their fragile egos. Many of my bosses were women and they were the decision-makers, tough which is OK and fair.” Both Niraj and I would love to hear your views.
