, to discuss what a career in door-to-sales is like. “This is not just a profession – this is an art. It’s something you can be proud of,” he says.

There are many people who think of door-to-door sales as just a solid summer job for college kids in between semesters, and yet Sam is clearly quite passionate about it. He talks about what makes a great salesman, and why good salesmen are so valuable.


So what is it that inspires this passion in him?

What makes door-to-door sales such a meaningful career?

Rewarding the Effort

Some people get into the sales industry because they want to make a lot of money. Most of them don’t know just how big a paycheck they can actually achieve if they put in the work.

One of the great things about door-to-sales is that hard work directly pays off. A lazy salesman may receive a small amount of money for his efforts, but the salesman who is working twice as hard as everyone else, will see the direct benefits of that work in his compensation.

There are few other professions where you have such control over your own pay. Most salaried employees put in a hard day’s work one day, and maybe a slightly harder day’s work the next, with little or no change in pay.

As Sam Taggart puts it, “A new salesman will come in and say they want to make $100,000 in a year. I tell them, why stop there? The only upper limit on your pay is in the amount of effort you are willing to put in.”

Sales is truly the career for those who know they can work hard and want to reap the benefits of that hard work. It is not for the weak of heart or the lazy. Hard workers will have a difficult time finding anywhere that values them so much.

Valuable Life Skills

Not every job teaches you skills that are applicable in every other aspect of life, but door-to-door salesmen gain skills that can greatly improve interpersonal relationships. While knocking doors and meeting new people, salesmen hone their face-to-face communication skills and learn how to ensure people feel respected.

Sales is a highly social profession. The amount of people a salesman interacts with in a day is often higher than in most other professions. It’s imperative to be able to communicate effectively and form positive relationships with each of these people.


Being in the digital age, not everyone has these face-to-face communication skills anymore. So many people are capable of sending an email or text, but don’t know how to communicate with respect and ease.

The best salesmen are those who understand how to connect with a variety of people. Because we live in a diverse society, this skill is one of the most valuable things gained on the job.

Lessons In Resiliency

Good door-to-door salesmen have a tremendous amount of grit. They understand how to take rejection and figure out a way to grow from it. This makes salesmen some of the most resilient people you’ll meet.

A day on the job in door-to-door is often not easy. Sometimes rejections can feel relentless, but it’s important to keep going despite any feelings of disappointment or discouragement.

Sam Taggart encourages salesman to not let emotions get in the way of their work. He says, “If you let your emotions drive your actions, you will always be inconsistent. You have to form good habits, and let your habits drive your actions, despite whatever emotions you are experiencing. This leads to consistent success.”

Consistency and resiliency go hand-in-hand. It isn’t easy to stick to habits while feeling fear of failure or discouragement at rejection. That’s why it takes a lot of grit to be a successful salesman.

A Positive Mindset

Sam Taggart puts a huge emphasis on having a positive mindset from the start. He says, “Your actions every day compound. The belief system you create in your first month of sales can carry with you your whole career. Be sure that belief system is a positive one.”

There are good moments and bad moments in door-to-door sales, but the best salesmen don’t let the bad moments determine their mindset. They know sometimes the rejections come all at once, but it doesn’t necessarily mean failure.

If the lesson you learn from your failures is that you must be a failure, you will never succeed in sales. Door-to-door salesmen learn how to keep their successes in mind to motivate them through each low point.

This positive mindset is imperative for success in selling a product while knocking doors because the people you are selling to can sense negativity. It takes focus and determination, to keep negativity at bay. Those who choose to pursue a career in door-to-door sales are some of the most focused and determined people you will meet.
