TN123: What door-to-door sales taught me about entrepreneurship

What do door-to-door sales have to do with succeeding as an entrepreneur?

About 15 years ago, I held a position selling encyclopedias door-to-door with a publishing company called Southwestern. That job is now long in the past, but the lessons I learned during that period have shaped my understanding business and sales, and they continue to influence my career as an entrepreneur.
