Outting Sales Slackers —DeWese
See, I’m smug. I don’t play games on my personal computer. I don’t know how, don’t know the rules and I am never good at that stuff. I only use the Internet to research my clients in the printing industry. I visit a lot of printing company Websites, and I can tell you there are some brutally awful sites and others that are works of art.
I either do my investment banking work stuff, which I do very efficiently since I have been doing it for so long, or I work outside doing manual labor in my gardens or mowing on my tractor. I help my neighbor mow his 12.5 acres because the work clears my head and I have great ideas as I bump along sweating in the sun.
Example of Hard Work
Here is the definition of work. His name is Nozario Tapia. He is a U.S. citizen who immigrated here when he was 15 and then earned his
citizenship. He is now 43 and already a grandfather. He turned that age in July and told me that I am his only American friend who ever gave him a birthday present. There was a little tear in his throat when he thanked me.
Nozario has worked for me for eight years as a landscaper and a hardscaper. In that time he has bought two homes in the U.S., one home in Mexico, two new trucks, two new SUVs, a grocery store, a Mexican restaurant, a tavern and is in big demand as a landscaper.
From the moment that Nozario and his crew arrive, they work non-stop. I never see them take a break or even take a leak. They take 30 minutes for lunch and then are back on the job planting trees, building my walls, paving my walkways or building and rebuilding my ponds and a multitude of other stuff I dream up. There is no needless chatter. No Internet. No Solitaire. Just work. No squabbling. No office politics. And everyone wants to work for Nozario.
