Sales Joke of the Day (July 27) Good Mourning!

A salesman passes away.

His widow and her friend are sitting together having lunch after the funeral service.  The friend asks the widow if her husband had any life insurance, and the widow answered her.  "Well, he had $10,000 in life insurance but it's all gone already."

"All gone already?" the friend asks, shocked.

"Yes," said the widow. 

"I don't understand," says the friend.  "How did you go through $10,000 so quickly?"

"Well, it's really not as bad as you think," said the widow.  "I had to pay $5,500 for his funeral and burial, $500 was donated to the church for the service, $1000 was what I spent on his suit, and the $3000 left over was for the memorial stone.

Puzzled, the friend looks at the widow and says, "That must have been some memorial stone for $3000!"

The widow answered, "You bet!  It's three carats, the gold one next to my ring finger.  Don't you just love it?"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that good times don't last forever.  During boom times, you need to save some of those big commission checks for when times are tough.  In addition, you must also plan for your loved ones in case tragedy strikes and you're not around.  Your income would need to be replaced.

But it's Friday folks!    No need to get depressed over all that mortality stuff!   Go out and party!!!  Enjoy the weekend!   Life is too short for worry!!!   Live while you can!!!
