7 | Nature vs Nurture
Can you actually train someone to be a great salesperson? Or do they have to come by it naturally.

And I know some great salespeople who fit that description. But I also know some really introverted, analytical salespeople who are also really successful.
There are only three common traits that I have seen in all successful sellers.
