Moving on to Solution Sales

A solutions-focused sales team has to focus more on the customer’s requirements than pushing the vendors’ products. The team needs to have an in-depth knowledge of the customer’s business and processes to help them adopt technology or solutions that will drive results. It is pertinent to understand that no sales person will ever have the knowledge and capability to come up with a solution that would meet all the technological challenges in a customer account. Solution selling is about understanding and comprehending enough options, configurations and applications available to be able to have the situational fluency to give the confidence to the customer that your solution may work to suit his purpose with less risk of failure.
I am looking at a scenario, where, in the near future, the customer will start moving away from a vendor/product-based sales cycle to look at creating and buying platform services where one vendor’s product can effectively integrate with another vendor’s offering in creating a solution for the end customer. Products that can effectively create solutions with other products will see a lot of buyers.
The smarter the product portfolios available in the technology channel become, the smarter the sales person needs to be to sell them. What’s more, the smarter the sales person comes through, the smarter the buyer becomes. Moving to solution sales is in essence moving to a tactical marketing and sales process. To be adept at solution sales, the technology channel needs to ensure such a process will differentiate them from their competition.

SO WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN ?

We have been fighting a religion defined definition of “ when did the life of a fetus begin”. It is a trap. The debate around this whole concept is so ridiculous that when you see pages of theories being written about the exact time “life took a birth”

Why I call this entire argument ridiculous is because technically everything is life. A cell is a life. An ant is a life, a plant is a life. Zygotes are life too. However, if you choose to mourn the zygote the same way you chose to mourn taking the dead cells off the bottom off your feet- is a decision you need to make with yourself.



All of these arguments around “life” distract from the actual issue, which is that no human should be required to share their organs with another human. No human should be required to sacrifice their life for another human. The intention or reason behind abortion is irrelevant in the context of the right to bodily autonomy.
I would argue that the Liberal “pro-choice” people who aggressively insist that abortio…

THE ABORTION FIGHT IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION

It's about firing the 2020 base. And the mainstream media is helping Trump


When Trump spewed his most preposterous lie about abortion in a rally about how full-term babies were killed by Doctors; do you think no one in the crowd was grown up enough to know that it was a lie? These are full grown people who make more important and logical decisions in their lives every day- what to buy; what to do, where to spend, how to earn a living. Do you think they do not know that Trump was concocting imagery for the benefit of creating a national debate about disgust towards the concept of “abortion”? Abortion is painful. Emotionally, it never leaves a woman. I aborted in 1998, then miscarried in 2008 and 2011. Each time, I named those cells and fetuses, celebrate their lives and created a story for their absence in mine, those cells, which could not find viability, for one reason or the other. So for someone, and these 25 white men, and several others, who have never been through that life-…

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.
