What do you do when you get bored of something? You try to get rid of it ASAP. In other words, you become a good salesman. So when you are hiring your sales team, make sure they are not particularly in love with your product. Shocked…?
Ad Scheepbouwer, CEO of Dutch telco KPN said this while declaring his pitch for iPhone franchise in the Netherlands –
“I had one [iPhone] and I thought it was a pretty useless phone, to be quite honest. The battery ran out in no time. I didn’t like the touch screen….“We’d be more than happy to sell it.”
That’s snarky enough twist…ain’t it?
