My father has been a salesman for the past 50 years (medical equipment), his father was an entrepeneur (pajamas, textiles, etc.), and his father was an immigrant who made his living by working whatever sales jobs he could find (cigars at some point). On the other side, my mother's father was a shoe salesman, his father was a shoe salesman, and I have no idea past that.
Based on how quickly I bend to my baby daughter's will every time she smiles at me, I think she may have a future in sales as well.
