I hate selling. I went to college to be a writer, ended up a TV reporter/producer/director/editor. And then I became a teacher. Nowhere did I have any desire to become an accountant or work in sales. In fact, I despise anything to do with selling stuff.
The way I figure it, if you want something, you will buy it. If you don’t, you won’t. I hate all the garbage about advertising appeals and pitches, etc. I hate collecting, counting and accounting for money even more.
It is a necessary evil when it comes to yearbooks. Today, I turned in yearbook sales money. The amount of paperwork involved to account for each sale is amazing. In addition, we keep a database in a secure online server as well. The total work of making one payment for a yearbook is easily five minutes of data entry, printing, filing and accounting.
I don’t even want to talk about selling yearbook ads.
