Have you ever had a direct seller coming at you too aggressively, trying their hardest to sell their products that you just awkwardly start closing up and walking away? Often, people get so passionate about their products and services that they tend to skip the part where they had to make an actual conversation.

One skill that all sellers need to have is networking. And the misconception around networking is that it’s all about selling. Well, we’re here today to get rid of that misconception and help you connect better with your ideal customers.
