Believe it or not…we’re ALL salesmen. That includes YOU and ME! Think about it for a moment. We HAVE to sell ourselves first before we can sell anything to anyone. We have to sell management on new ideas, personnel, services, new technology, strategy, and products. Then the REAL SALESMAN comes in to do the hard work….INK-THE-DEAL. He must be attuned to selling high-end, low-end; junk or treasure, New-Year, Mid-Year, or Year-end. If he’s a real estate salesman, then he’s selling good land, bad land, desert, urban, mountain, beach, mid-town or out-of-town, small lots or large, beside the ditch, in the ditch, commercial or residential. He’s having, always, to contend with close-outs, new-products, and good economy or bad; high interest or low. And, I’d venture to say…they’re on commission only, and they EARN every dime they get. To me, they’re the BACK-BONE of the economy. NOTE: I remember when telephone systems were so large and complex, that they housed in a 10×10 “telephone-room,” now the come to you on a “disk.” Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise. …Blessings…cjlb…11/15/13
