BA and Sales are very different roles

To prepare to be a BA, it would be helpful to learn more about the business, and specifically how IT solutions solve business problems.

Sales is a totally different animal. My opinion is that you can teach some of the basic fundamentals of sales, but the individual must have the people skills, motivation, and mental toughness that you are born with, not something that you would learn in a classroom.

You can definitely swim if you scope out the priorities based on your mandate. If you wear "many-hats" as an analyst you must first support core org functions and business processes as applicable to your mandate. Use your skills of communication, analytical and problem-solving to resolve the strategic issues of complaints. It is a job that you may not always be understood by your peers, but it is a balancing act of respect and appreciation. Good luck.
