Just to laugh

A young couple is golfing one day on a very exclusive course lined with million-dollar houses. On the third tee, the wife slices her shot right through the large front window of the biggest house along the course. They walk up, knock on the door, and hear a voice say, “Come on in.” Opening the door, they see glass everywhere and a broken bottle lying on the floor.

A man on the couch says, “Are you the people who broke my window?” The husband begins to apologize, but the man cuts him… Continue

More thoughts on Sales Skills are Life Skills

I found the replies to my last post interesting...

Rayanne's comment went straight to my point; how many people have that negative view of "sales"? Yet, if we communicate at all - we sell. (see Sales Skills are Life Skills)

It is definitely not about "selling someone" and I understand where Ben is coming from. That being said, to lump all into "you Americans" is not exactly fair. I think Jim's point lends to motivation and persistence. Our solutions may not help everyone.… Continue

Effective Blog Comments

Great advice.....especially if you type and think at the same time - vs. thinking then typing then thinking again. All good tips but IMO the most significant is not being reactive....where you could hurt yourself the most.

Your Company's Direction - HR's Contribution

In an Op-Ed column in the New York Times, David Brooks tackles the notion of an emerging group in the United States that he refers to as the formerly middle class.

This is a vast swathe of unhappy professionals who, in their halycon days(last month), would consume lattes, IPods and SUVs with the reckless abandon of a cashed out dot com millionaire. They now find that what they had become to… Continue

The Upside Down that is Detroit

It’s a ditch that is so deep, it’s really mind boggling how we are going to get out. The ditch I’m referring to is Detroit.

Though I’ve long since moved away to pursue a career in high tech, I have an affinity for the area that is rooted in a respect and awe that goes back to my childhood. The Ford plant in our home town was one of the biggest buildings I had ever seen and all those employee cars in the parking lot–wow, it seemed like they… Continue

Sales Skills are Life Skills

I love the art of selling. LOVE IT. When I first entered

the field of sales, the one thing I quickly grew to

appreciate was the fact that anything I did to increase

my ability in selling also increased my ability in life.

Sales skills are life skills.

"There's a born salesman!" I have yet to read, or hear

on the evening news, of a lady who gave birth to a

sales person. Or an attorney, or doctor, or for that

matter an embezzler or swindler. Birth is… Continue
