Selling water to a thirsty man is easy. The need is essential, the requirement clear. But what if you needed to convince the man he was thirsty?  What if he didn’t quite get that he needed to drink? What would you do? What would you say?  That’s why you’ll be great at selling services. You’ll be consulting with companies to help them understand the danger they are in and the best solutions they can use.  You’ll need to rise to the challenge, winning new clients and paving the way to achieving a successful budget.
