How do I start a Career in Sales Management?

I am very curious about a Career in Sales Management. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Sales Management is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Sales Management. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Sales Management, when I came across:
