Wisdom. No MBA Required -- DeWese
Here are three more Will Rogersisms. I’m running out of space, so I’m going to challenge all of you readers to e-mail, fax or mail me a letter (that’s a piece of paper with writing on it) in care of this publication, and tell me how any one of these quotes relates to sales. The best five ideas will be published with your picture in the August issue of the magazine. I’ll try to persuade Attila the Editor to give something good to the five winners.
Here are three more quotes to choose from.
“There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.”
“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.”
“If you’re riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.”
Next month, I’ll present the Mañana Man’s Stimulus Package. It won’t include any bailout money, since I’m tapped out. But it will include a lot of “Stimulating” programs that you can use to improve your business and personal prosperity.
Meanwhile, stimulate your sales and “Get Out There and Sell Something.”
Oh, I almost forgot. I do have a money-making scheme. Remember how I criticized blogs in my April column. Well, now I have one, so visit me at www.hubpages.com/author/Manana+Man/hot/. It’s intended to be a productive respite for lonely and tired salespeople. If I have a lot of visitors, they may pay me a couple of bucks. PI
