I wrote this article last month, it's probably going to get published by The Shambhala Times e-zine. I'll send out the link when it gets published. Let me know your comments.

thanks
In the modern world of B2C and B2B commerce it doesn't seem like anyone today would look at a salesperson's role in society as being sacred. It doesn't take much effort to find a social media post with scathing comments ...

Sales is an activity to be held as a sacred trust between the seller and the buyer. The sales executive facilitates the exchange of value between 2 others. That value is what each has put their life into creating and both deserve to be honored and respected in the exchange.

I help people get what they want!
Introduction
I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs love selling what they do. That is, I believe when we remember why we do what we do, selling it becomes much easier than trying to sell it to make the money.

My life is about making sure people get what they want so that we all experience more peace in our lives, in our communities and in the world. What I want is peace. But I can't buy that. And I can't sell it. In the sense of buying and selling, I can't have it. But I can have peace, and I can help others have some peace, too. I do not believe that we get peace from the things we can buy. I do believe that it's too hard to experience peace when we don't get what we need or want. 

Since I have been selling for so many years I have noticed that the biggest barrier to people getting what they want is that we so often have to buy it from a salesperson! There are things we need and want, and even if getting them doesn't give us peace, getting them removes some of the barriers to experiencing peace. Unfortunately, over the last century or so, the profession of sales has come to stand in the way of many people getting what they want. By and large I don't know many people who like dealing with salespeople. It is something of a necessary evil to be tolerated.

I am here to engage a new conversation about what it means to sell, and to buy from a seller. What will it take to return selling to a noble activity that honors the value of the creation of something to be bought and of the money to be spent? Let's have a conversation about this - really. What you experience when you spend your money is way too important for us to continue on the road we are on. 
Bragging rights
I have sold stuff, services and people for over 30 years. I have enjoyed some of it. Some people told me they enjoyed buying from me!

I love this place. It is the best example I have seen of what happens when you mix love with commerce. It's Haley House Bakery. It is clear that the Haley House organization loves the people they work with because the people who work in the Cafe clearly love those of us who come in for a cup of coffee and food. The food is excellent! I am completely comfortable the food is from clean, ethical sources and the quality of preparation is full of love and craft! This is the place to go if you believe that doing business together can be both enriching and commercially viable.

I ordered coffee and bagels for a Saturday morning meeting. Everything was ready right on time, packaged up beautifully, ready to serve. Met the owner, he's a lovely man. Love the fact that they roast their own fair trade coffee right on site!

We held our wedding and reception at Exchange Hall in September 2013. It was a perfect and lovely day. The owners are a pleasure to work with. They are knowledgeable, friendly and have great connections to be very helpful. The Hall is lovely and quaint in an old Yankee-sort of way that is very enjoyable.
