A masterful salesman convinces a completely uninterested customer into purchasing $100 worth of product.
I saw a tall, handsome man who was enticing passersby with skin care samples and asked him if he could share some tricks he’s picked up in the art of selling. The idea of convincing people to pay you money for something has always fascinated me, and I thought I could learn a thing or two from someone who does it day in day out. Although he was a bit perplexed as to why I wanted to learn about this if I didn’t work in sales, he was willing to entertain me.
Am I embarrassed about what happened? Of course. I was masterfully manipulated, and I have little choice but to admit that I received an unexpectedly expensive lesson in the art of selling. I got exactly what I had asked for.
