    My name is Stephen. I am a 25 years old boy now working at a small factory as an international salesman in China. As a newbie, I find it extremely hard to exploit the foreign market. Until today, two months have been passed I did not make any business. Our boss thought that he was paying me for nothing. I felt really depressed and helpless about this job. Could any nice guy help me with good advice? Should I stick to working here?:(

    Hey there, Stephen. I'm Dan. I'd like to live by myself as well...
    Can't help you though since I'm even younger than you. Good luck though, sending positive vibes your way. ;)

    I don't see how this has to do with CPA.
    If you're gifted with your job, I say find a way to make it happen. If not, immediately put yourself where you can utilize your best skills.

    You cant get depressed its been 2 months. I think you should change your method, try to find what you have been doing wrong and work on it and keep working on it until you perfect it. Never stop learning and dont let anyone discourage you from being a success.

    Goodluck

    Have you tried contacting as many international businesses as you can, you need to stick with phones and emails until someone buys your service and will follow from there.

    Sorry Mate, this is the nature of Sales. Are you on a Salary or Commission?
    You have to have a thick skin in sales or you will be crying into your pillow every night.
    It is NOT a career for everybody. Only YOU can decide if you are cut out for this.
    I really do, wish you all the best as I know how tough it can be.

    Thanks! Your encouragement makes me confident now. During last two months I keep searching for a lot of B2B websites and registering on them to be a free user. Then I fill out all the necessary company information and upload our products onto those websites. However, it seems not very useful as our products got very few views. Our boss is not considering paying extra money on investing such B2B sites because he had invested several thousands dollars before. Maybe I need to try other promotion methods.
