Tom Peters - "we are all salesmen"

Quick. What does "marketing" mean? While you are thinking about that on the back burner, what does "salesman" mean? Is the picture getting clearer?

Tom Peters says, "Every single person on the marketing team is a salesman."

"If the MBA were wiped off the face of the earth we would live in a better world."

About China, "They are developing MBAs which means they are on the slippery slope to oblivion."

I agree with Tom Peters. Each person inside a company needs to be a salesman for the company. Ideally, as an owner you would like them to be an evangelist for the company, but you would be happy if the employee at least felt like a salesman.

Even the coders for the websites fit into the saleman designation.

See for yourself......
