Being pushy [Part 2]

Your job depends on selling $120 dollars per sale. You will put people deeper into credit card debt.

You will sell someone something they don't really need and didn't come for. They will say "I'm going to have to work a lot of extra hours for this!"

I once sold $240 worth of stuff to someone who had her current credit card balance written directly on the card in Sharpie: $5,550.00

It's either that or enjoy not having a job.

As I am COMPLETELY understanding of your situation, I believe the $5500. written on the back of her credit card was probably her "limit" and not her "balance". I, myself, follow this practice and I know a lot of others that do also. It does break your heart to push portraits down the throat of someone who is recently laid off or who can't afford decent clothes in which their child will be photographed.
