This week on #WorkTrends we went beyond selling products and services and looked at how 2017 can be the year of selling yourself. We are all salespeople whether you realize it or not.

Host Meghan M. Biro was joined by best-selling author and expert salesman Anthony Iannarino to discuss what people need to do to rise above the crowd at work and be a standout employee.

Anthony shared tips and ideas that you will be able to use during 2017 and beyond.

Here are a few key points he shared:

  • Selling is not a bad word. It is all about relationship and building trust
  • Selling yourself requires transparency, authenticity, and knowing what unique product only you have to offer
  • The more you care about other people, the easier it is to gain trust
