Mañana Man's Fan Mail —DeWese
It wasn’t long before Junior came to me and offered to sell me the company. I decided to play hardball and told him, ‘Junior, this is a printing company. You are supposed to pay me to take it.’ Well, we reached a fair price, and now I’m the owner and president. I still sell, and I let Billy Ray Daniels run the administration management stuff. I’m also on the board at the bank, and I bought the Ford dealership, so I can get a new F150 whenever I want.
My old best friend Brenda Wanda drives one of our trucks since she left Derek Dewayne.
But, best of all, plant clean-up maintenance is handled by my ex. I personally sign his pay check.
Your book gave me all this success, and I love you Mañana Man!
Well, Mr. Mañana Man, I heard you are coming out with two more books, and I want you to send them to me immediately. Same deal, right? $2 per month.

OK, it’s a deal. But you will have to stay out there and sell something!
