A Deceitful Sales Strategy
By: Rick Boxx

As a financially-strapped college kid I discovered a job offering a higher hourly wage than normal. Because I was hungry for work I overlooked their deceptions.

Instead of an hourly wage, each time I demonstrated their vacuum cleaner to a customer I received a flat fee. They also promised to line me up appointments.

That was their second of many lies. The only appointments were those I arranged after pressure from my boss!

This company used deception regularly to enhance their bottom line, which undermined their credibility.

1 Peter 3:10 teaches, “For, “The one who desires life, to love and see good days, Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.”

If you desire a sales organization that honors God, deceit cannot be a part of your strategy.
