Do you want to know the most amazing sales ever done in front of me ?
I had just sold my goods to a big wholesaler in Kathmandu and we were just sitting there exchanging usual pleasantries. All of a sudden I see a guide walking in the showroom with some Chinese tourists. The guide asked about the Buddha statue and the wholesaler points it out. The guide then tries to convince the highly disinterested Chinese tourist about the Buddha statue but as we all know the guide is neither a salesman who can sell or businessman who knows and is confident about his products.
Bored with the guide non stop yammering, the Chinese tourist moved towards the exit of the showroom. As his
first leg crossed the exit door, the Chinese tourist hears, "Do you want quality goods or cheap one ? ”你要便宜 的还是好的？’ . He stopped , pulled his leg inside, turned back and with a smile said "The best quality, in the most reasonable price of course "
Not only the whole-seller sold huge amount of goods that day, he taught me something even more priceless. ❝The
limits of my language are the limits of my world. If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to
his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.❞ ‒Nelson Mandela. The next day I joined Language Hub.
