She knocked on my door and I turned her down

A lady knocked on my door a few minutes ago. She said she sold perfume oils and came to see if I was interested.

If you know me personally, you know that I am not interested in such. Also, I am not an impulsive buyer in every sense of the word.

Out of a feeling to reward her guts to knock on my door, I told her to come by the weekend and perhaps there will be people in the house who would be interested.

As for me, I am definitely not buying. But then I replayed this scenario in my head, what could have made me buy from her?

You see, I need clothes. It was about time I changed my wardrobe. And I don’t just want any kind of outfit, I want professional and comfortable outfits with a few designer names.

However, I hate shopping for clothes. It has been over 10 years since I shopped in person for clothes. I always send someone to do it for me with my specifications.

You see; if she had come in to ask about my outward appearance challenges, maybe she would have a client. But because she was so preoccupied with what she had to sell, I didn’t connect.

This is how people lose potential clients

Forget about what you sell. Care about what the market wants. And the best way to do that is by asking questions.

The juice is really on today. I hope you learned something.
