A non-judgemental, and non derogatory, posting about Comic Relief. Enjoy! Unless you are from over the borrrrrda! Hoots ya dog! Well. Comic Relief has been and gone thankfully. I don’t know about you but I am fed up with people begging. It’s either this campaign, this flood, this famine or this lame excuse. I am not tight. I am not miserable. I just object to the whole scenario. What gets on my nerves more than the begging? The fakeness of it all. People wearing their pyja
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, \’I\’ll give each of you just one wish.\’
\’Me first! Me first!\’ says the admin clerk. \’I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.\’
Puff! She\’s gone.
\’Me next! Me next!\’ says the sales rep. \’I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an en
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, \’Can I also sit like you and do nothing?\’
The eagle answered: \’Sure, why not.\’
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested.
All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up. http://themooreconsortium.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default #NLP #Firewal
Pro-Brook are a publishing company who were working out of serviced offices in Borough High Street but have now moved to a small room in Woodbridge having trimmed down the work force to one person working from home. They publish a few magazines, twice a year-published annually (??) and I worked for them for a couple of years at their London Bridge office. They class themselves as a next generation publisher. Their website is under construction….
But now, here\’s an interesti
How many people do you know say, \’Let\’s just sign the paperwork and we will get all the other stuff sorted out at a later date!\’?
Here is something I find really strange. Why on earth would anyone, if they are in their right mind, allow you to lock them into a contract that at a later date may change?
Would you want to be signing a piece of paper that would be either worthless, or worse, turn out to be even more costly to you and have deep implications into your business o
\”Referrals\” Are a Waste – Introductions are Gold. Referrals get your calls answered and open otherwise closed doors, right? Not really, explains Paul McCord, a leading authority on referral selling.
Rick\’s client was somewhat uncomfortable with his request. The sale had gone well enough–everything considered. But this last question about referrals was a little uncomfortable. His client was completely caught off guard. He wasn\’t the least prepared to give a referral and w
For many of us, amateur commentary and critique of \’professional\’ football is a national pastime. It\’s a shame we don\’t pay such close attention to our business. Take a moment to ponder this……
* How would you feel about investing £millions in a new player for your team without having seen him play beforehand?
* Once the player joined your team, how regularly would you want to see him play in order to assess his ability, strengths and weaknesses?
* How personalised would h
If you\’re involved in sales for your company, think about all the things your employer does for you. Your employer pays for virtually 100% of your training, your marketing, your gas and cell phone expenses, as well as client lunches and entertainment. Your employer invests hundreds of dollars per month in your career, yet knowingly allows you to:
– waste time or blow off work.
– go home early or come in late.
– stand around and complain with other salespeople.
– pad your cal
Wow! I understand stage fright, but I don\’t understand this… Odds are, if you\’re much of an internet surfer, you\’ve seen this clip already:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=WALIARHHLII It\’s a clip of Laura Caitlin Upton, the Miss Teen America contestant from South Carolina, giving her answer to a question about education and geography: \”Recent polls have shown that a fifth of Americans can\’t locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?\”

Here\’s a situation I heard several times while reviewing recorded calls from salespeople.
Prospect: \”We\’re not ready yet. Give me a call back later in the quarter.\”
Sales Rep: \”Umm, how about the beginning of November?\”
Prospect: \”Sure.\” Here\’s another.
Prospect: \”We\’re still giving it some consideration. Just not ready yet.\”
Sales Rep: \”OK, how about if I call you back in a couple of months?\”
Prospect: That\’s fine. One more:
Prospect: \”Not a good time for it
You know you are living in 2007 because…
1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven\’t played solitaire with real cards for years.
3. You have a list of 15 numbers to reach a family of 3.
4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and relatives is because they don\’t have an e-mail address.
6. Every commercial on TV has a website at the bottom.
7. Leaving the house without
In the late eighties I took delivery of a Sky satellite system. At the time I was selling Timeshare Ownership’s to unsuspecting customers in Leicester Square and I was taking home around two thousand pounds a week in commission. It was a phenomenal amount of money to earn in those days but the SKY system was a phenomenal amount of money to buy so, in my head, it balanced out. My then girlfriend, Wanda, came over and we sat down that first night on the sofa and we ate pizza an
How about this for a Job Spec?? Superb Ad for a Sales Manager. It doesn\’t mention \’one hand tied behind the back\’ but…

Now here is one for the archives. Please remember this point before reading on: A company (let\’s call it RoboKrop) gives you a contract, you read it, you sign it. Nowhere in that contract does it say that if your client decides not to pay, we will clawback your commission. OK? Well, hang on, because you are in for a bumpy ride. You are a salesperson selling advertising space over the telephone. Your job is to convince your prospect that advertising in one of the magazines an
