Lot's of people are afraid of sales jobs because they don't come with a guaranteed monthly salary. The uncertainty of working for commission makes them nervous so they opt for the security of a salaried role. 
But the job security they think exists in marketing, operations, or other jobs is a myth. No matter what role you are in, your job only exists so long as you create more than you earn. You need to create value regularly, or else that salary will disappear. 
This isn’t a scary insight, it is empowering. It is the insight that allows you to view yourself as a company no matter what role you are in.
Even if you are working for only one employer, you are selling a service to a customer. The more valuable that service compared to the price, the more secure you will be. 
In this episode:
  • Terror of working in sales
  • There is no such thing as a secure job
  • Every job demands value creation every day
  • Contractor vs. employee
  • The post-job era
  • You are your own company
