You’ve got to have a lot of personality to sell to a politician.
You’ve also got to be likable.
You also have to have something positive to say about your situation.
And you’ve got some serious skills at the tradecraft and public relations departments.
The list of these skills is long.
The most important skill is to be believable.
When you’re being told you’re not going to be elected because you have a certain personality, that’s a big red flag that you should know to watch out for.
I’ll bet you’ll never be elected to office again, but you may get a few opportunities to do your part.
I hope you can use my experience to make sure you have as many chances to win as possible.
The first thing you should do is learn how to sell.
How to get elected to Washington, D.C. isn’t easy.
You don’t need to be a great salesman, but if you’re a candidate who has a solid resume and you’re willing to talk, then you can at least start selling yourself.
Don’t just think about the details, though.
Focus on the core message that you want to get across.
The key is to say something that the voters want to hear, and that means something that can’t be said by anybody else.
If you’re going to sell, you need to sell your heart and soul.
If that means selling your ability to do the job as a public servant, then sell it.
Be an idealist.
The biggest mistake a politician can make is not being an idealistic politician.
We can’t always do all that we want in politics, but it’s better than not being.
Be realistic about your chances.
And when you do get in there, remember that most people won’t be able to help you, and most politicians are not as bad as they think they are.
If the campaign isn’t going well, you can always call it quits.
You may not have a good shot at winning, but the sooner you do, the better for yourself.
But when it comes to your chances of winning, the more important you should be.
And if you don’t like what you’re seeing, then keep working to improve.
I like the idea of a “no bullshit” politics.
There’s no one right way to run a campaign, and there’s always going to have to be someone who gets it wrong.
But in the end, the voters have the final say, and it’s up to you to show them that you’re better than the other guy.
