Lot’s of people are afraid of sales jobs because they don’t come with a guaranteed monthly salary. The uncertainty of working for commission makes them so nervous that they opt for the “security” of a salaried role.
But the job security they think exists in marketing, operations, or other roles is a myth. No matter what role you are in, your job only exists so long as you create more than you earn. You need to create value regularly, or else that salary will disappear.
This isn’t a scary insight, it is empowering. It is the insight that allows you to view yourself as a company no matter what you do. Even if you are work for the same single employer for five years, you are a business selling a service to a customer. The more valuable that service compared to the price, the more secure you will be.
In this episode:

- There is no such thing as a secure job
- Every job demands value creation every day
