Both.ย  There is a science to the process and an art to how it is implemented.

I believe itโ€™s an art.. At least to me. To me, itโ€™s a great stage production; I get to act and be whom I think the prospects want me to be. In turn, they do what I want and I get paid handsomely for it.ย

Much like a sport it is both, you couldnโ€™t teach someone how to be as smooth as Ken Griffey Jr. and if you stick so firm to the science itโ€™s like talking to a robot. I believe sales is a matter of knowing when to use the science and when tot utilize the art.ย

Definitely both. Art because it's a performance and science because there is always a process

An Art, A Science, An Absolute Chessgame where the people who are stuck playing checkers will fall behind.

Both. You can't find success by being all flair or all process/product. Well, you can... But not for the long term.ย

Art, you are born with it but have to work on it.
