Do you feel like someone is bullying you? As a result, it greatly affects you emotionally and financially.
Most sellers encounter business bullies. They’re not just pushy, but an emotional or intellectual bully. These people are not common, but they can be a ball of negative energy. They can make you do things you wouldn’t do for/with anyone else. Most of the time, they manipulate you and put you on pressure to make decisions you don’t feel good about, don’t enjoy when you do them, and will most likely regret later.
These bullies can be your employees, business partners, contractors, and even your customers.
