I think infomercials truly shaped a generation worth of salespeople. It allowed the same playbook to be handed down from one player to the next, adding new chapters to the exact blueprint.

When the lady spoke about her clients’ challenges, their needs didn’t fit the same playbook many career and…

She gave me 20 minutes of her time.
