Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’ Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life. – Mary Kay Ash

Sales isn’t just for retailers and big companies. It’s a process that everyone in business has to go through to bring in new clients or customers. Yet many freelancers and sole traders may never have to have ever do sales. Maybe you went from full time employee to full time contractor and never had to pitch for new work. Or perhaps you have always been referred new work by others. However, 2020 is not your average year, and many freelancers and sole traders have seen their customer base leave or even close down.
